GA Voice - - Front Page - By JACY TOPPS

Pride School At­lanta, one of the first of its kind in the re­gion seeks to cre­ate a K-12 non­profit school for LGBT ed­u­ca­tors, stu­dents and fam­i­lies, and is hop­ing to raise enough money to open the school this year.

School co-founder Chris­tian Zsilavetz has re­cruited renowned les­bian comic Suzanne Westen­hoe­fer to join the ef­fort and she is ap­pear­ing in At­lanta on May 1 to ben­e­fit the fledg­ling school.

Westen­hoe­fer was the first openly les­bian to have an HBO com­edy spe­cial and also the first out les­bian to ap­pear on “Late Night with David Let­ter­man.” We caught up with Westen­hoe­fer to chat about her in­ter­est in Pride School At­lanta and more.
