The LGBT lawyers of the Stonewall Bar Association of Georgia gathered for the 21st year on Wednesday to celebrate their own with some high-profile company as special guest.
Gay Atlanta’s legal eagles descended on the Egyptian Ballroom at the Fox Theatre for a cocktail reception, followed by dinner with food by Affairs to Remember. This year’s featured speaker was Justice Carol W. Hunstein, a judge on the Supreme Court of Georgia. Hunstein has done this dinner before, delivered the oath of office to lesbian state Rep. Simone Bell and quipped about sodomy.
Other special guests included newly-elected state Rep. Taylor Bennett, recently-appointed U.S. Magistrate Judge Catherine Salinas, DeKalb Superior Court Judge Asha Jackson, Fulton State Court Judges Jane Morrison, who is gay, and Patty Porter, and Atlanta Municipal Court Judge Jadawnya Butler. Judge Murphy Miller, chief judge of the Enotah Judicial District in Dahlonega, also attended, as did Sherry Boston, the DeKalb Solicitor-General who is running for District Attorney.
