imageCraig Washington, a long-time gay and HIV activist in Atlanta, speaks out in an informative podcast with Gay Agenda.

Washington, whose day job is volunteer and training coordinator for Positive Impact, jumped back into the fray of gay activism recently when he joined several other black activists in launching the Atlanta Black LGBT Coalition. The group’s public debut came in late December when it called on Ebenezer Baptist Church to drop Rev. Rick Warren from its MLK commemoration on Jan. 19.

Washington was also on hand Monday when the coalition held a press conference at the State Capitol to detail their plans for a protest next week surrounding Warren’s stop in Atlanta.

He talks about the coalition, the upcoming protest, Warren’s record on HIV and other topics during the interview with James Hipps, the site’s editor.
