Nearly three-dozen gay-owned and LGBT-friendly companies put their sales pitch on the road Sunday to take part in a gay and lesbian expo in College Park.
The booths at the Community Expo from the Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce included large corporate titans, such as UPS, MetLife, Coca-Cola, Deloitte and SunTrust.
