The Mystic Krewe of Apollo-Birmingham (MKA) was founded as a social krewe in 1976 to foster brotherhood, unity and equality within the gay community and society. The main mission of MKA is to put on an outstanding annual Bal Masque during the Mardi Gras season. Since then, MKA has shared the spirit of Mardi Gras with thousands through feathered and sequined pageantry like no other!

We are looking for others who appreciate the revelry and want to share in the festive brotherhood of our krewe!
