It was stand­ing room only at the Lou­d­er­milk Con­fer­ence Cen­ter in down­town At­lanta on Jan. 16 as the com­mu­nity marked Martin Luther King Jr. Day with the 16th An­nual Ba­yard Rustin/Au­dre Lorde Break­fast. The theme this year was Rel­e­vance, and the event fea­tured se­lect works from Liv­ing With, an art ex­hibit about the im­pact of HIV/AIDS.

Mary Anne Adams and the late trans­gen­der ac­tivist Ch­eryl Court­ney-Evans were hon­ored with the An­gelic Trou­ble­mak­ers Spot­light and the crowd heard from speak­ers from Evo­lu­tion Project, South­ern­ers on New Ground, Ge­or­gia Equal­ity, THRIVE SS, More­house Col­lege, The Health Ini­tia­tive and oth­ers. Fol­low­ing the break­fast, the crowd as­sem­bled to join the an­nual MLK March & Rally. For more pho­tos from the Rustin/Lorde Break­fast, go to www.the­gavoice.com.
