As Atlanta embraced its cornerstone status in the civil rights movement on Monday for the 47th year, an ever-growing LGBT contingent honored their place in the struggle with the Rustin-Lorde Breakfast.
About 100 people filled the basement of Positive Impact last month for the Atlanta Bayard Rustin-Audre Lorde Breakfast, an event that marks the contributions of black gay men and lesbians.
The annual breakfast takes place on the annual commemoration of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The event this year, held Jan. 19, took place after a vocal protest earlier that morning over the appearance of Rev. Rick Warren at the MLK services at Ebenezer Baptist Church.
