The Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, fresh from its gala Community Awards Dinner a few weeks ago, gets back to the basics Wednesday.
Tonight, a collection of attorneys and judges will tackle a broad range of legal issues that impact gay folks and their businesses. Four attorneys—Randy New (photo), Dusty Branson, Aryeh Bondy and Brian Herman—will join DeKalb County Probate Court Judge Jeryl Debra Rosh and Grant Garris from “A Village to Raise,” an online forum for gay and straight parents.
The event opens at 6 p.m. with a half-hour of networking, then moves to the hour-long panel discussion before closing with a second half-hour of networking. If your eyes glaze over with all of the legal chatter, grab a cocktail and check out the views. The event takes place on the 27th floor of the W Atlanta-Midtown.
