2017 Rustin/ Lorde Breakfast
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.
