LGBT Atlanta again celebrated the legacy of Martin Luther Ling, Jr., on Monday with the 16th Annual Rustin Lorde Breakfast.
The event in Atlanta's Loudermilk Center, with the theme "Relevance," attracted a crowd of hundreds for the breakfast. Longtime LGBT and HIV activists Craig Washington and Darlene Hudson launched the event in 2002 as a way to remember the legacy of activist Bayard Rustin and poet Audre Lorde.
The breakfast honored Mary Anne Adams, founding director of ZAMI NOBLA, and trans activist Cheryl Courtney-Evans, with its Angelic Troublemakers Spotlight. Courtney-Evans died in October. The event also included select works from "Living With," an art exhibit that explores the stories of HIV-positive youth across Georgia through multi-media installations from local artists.
Enjoy photos from the breakfast last year and 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009.
