Some of those im­por­tant is­sues in­clude Ful­ton County’s HIV rates; HIV crim­i­nal­iza­tion; in­clu­siv­ity and safety of trans­gen­der At­lantans; gen­tri­fi­ca­tion; and youth home­less­ness — par­tic­u­larly due to LGBT youth be­ing kicked out of their homes due to their sex­ual ori­en­ta­tions or gen­der iden­ti­ties. Dur­ing the orig­i­nal may­oral race, both can­di­dates weighed in on these and other top­ics in a host of LGBT-led fo­rums, and con­tinue to an­swer as­so­ci­ated ques­tions today.
