LGBT Atlanta honored the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., on Monday with song, celebration, inspiration and activism during the 15th Annual Rustin Lorde Breakfast.
The event in downtown Atlanta's Loudermilk Center, with the theme “Art Is Movement,” 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.
Volunteers from HRC and Atlanta Pride dished out eggs, biscuits and more to start the event. It preceded the King Day March through the city, which included an LGBT contingent led by LGBT Honorary Grand Marshal Rev. Duncan Teague.
