Atlanta is a city of LGBT bests. Best travel spot. Best attorneys. Best bars. Best drag queen. And now, dozens of winners across Georgia Voice's annual Best of Atlanta contest.
The media outlet unveiled the picks – scores of winners across all sorts of categories voted on by readers – during their annual snazzy bash on Thursday at the Georgian Terrace. WABE's Jim Burress and Elly Yu emceed the event, which also offered tasty appetizers and free-flowing cocktails.
Also on hand during were politicos Cathy Woolard and Mary Norwood. Woolard, the gay former president of the Atlanta City Council, is running for mayor. Norwood, an Atlanta City Council member, may join the race as well.
The long list of winners included Project Q Atlanta for Best LGBT Blog/Website, an honor we're proud to have received each year since the inception of the awards in 2010. Check out the full list of 2016 winners.
