Paganism is a word that carries many different connotations. To some, this is not only acceptable, but is encouraged. 

"One of the things that brings different Pagans together is tolerance, and we want people to understand the diversity," said Lochele Foley, an assistant research scientist at UGA.

In addition to uniting area Pagans, the Pagan Pride Festival held on Saturday aimed to support religious diversity, celebrate the harvest and hold food donations to benefit Project Safe.

Vendors ranged from jewelry and clothing to items specifically for Pagan practices. Presentations included explanations of Pagan ideas and beliefs as well as expositions ranging from blacksmithing to hand-made drums.
