Politi­cian

GA Voice - - Outspoken -

Bob Fawcett (thep­et­set.com) has been a stal­wart of At­lanta’s LGBT com­mu­nity since he opened the doors to his first lo­ca­tion of The Pet Set in the ‘80s. He’s since gone on to op­er­ate lo­ca­tions in Mid­town and the Bri­ar­cliff area, in ad­di­tion to of­fer­ing mo­bile groom­ing ser­vices for coifed ca­nines and kit­ties around the city. Visit ei­ther lo­ca­tion for trims and fa­cials to leave your fur baby look­ing and smelling fab­u­lous. Com­ing in sec­ond and third place were Gabrielle Clai­borne and Craig Bates.

Party Pro­moter

Ge­or­gia Voice colum­nist Bill Kaelin (www.bil­lka­elin.com) wins this cat­e­gory again in 2016, as he has done in mul­ti­ple years past. His com­pany, Bill Kaelin Mar­ket­ing, pro­vides “one stop” shop­ping for “all your mar­ket­ing, brand­ing, con­sult­ing and event needs.” He has been mak­ing the scene(s) in At­lanta for nearly a decade now.

In sec­ond place is Lando Gon­za­lez, with Barry Bran­don (www.bar­ry­bran­don­mar­ket­ing. com) round­ing out the list in third place.

A for­mer Free­dom Rider and peer of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., John Lewis (https:// john­lewis.house.gov/) has spent a life­time fight­ing for the rights of the un­der­priv­i­leged and shows no signs of stop­ping. His ef­forts have earned him a spe­cial place in your hearts as the top LGBT-friendly politi­cian in At­lanta. Lewis is a long­time sup­porter of LGBT rights and even in his ‘70s, con­tin­ues to speak out for a broader, gay-in­clu­sive con­cept of civil rights in Amer­ica.

In sec­ond place is Alex Wan, with Nathan Deal and Park Can­non com­ing in third and fourth place re­spec­tively.
