When equal rights are in ques­tion, one name is top of mind in At­lanta – Jeff Gra­ham (www. geor­giae­qual­ity.org), voted top male ac­tivist in the city. The Ge­or­gia Equal­ity ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor landed on At­lanta Mag­a­zine’s list of the 55 most pow­er­ful peo­ple in the city for a long slate of ac­tivist ef­forts, in­clud­ing push­ing to de­feat so-called “re­li­gious free­dom” leg­is­la­tion and en­sur­ing lo­cal of­fi­cials obeyed the land­mark U.S. Supreme Court rul­ing on same-sex mar­riage. After 30 years in ac­tivism, Gra­ham re­mains humble yet out­spo­ken. Run­ners up in­cluded Charles Stephens, Leo Martinez and Jamie Allen.
