Two of the most ambitious development projects the city of Atlanta has ever seen are slowly but surely inching their way into our lives, step-by-step, brick-and-mortar by brick-and-mortar.
Two of the most ambitious development projects the city of Atlanta has ever seen are slowly but surely inching their way into our lives, step-by-step, brick-and-mortar by brick-and-mortar. One connects the city by way of pathways, art, events and alternative transportation. The other is the disruptor, plopping down in the middle of an area some …

LGBT folks know a lot about the families we choose—the mentors and confidants we find as substitutes for unaccepting relatives—but many of us belong to families that chose us. Even when our biological families love us without condition, for which I am truly grateful, there are people who come into our lives and shape us as if they were in the womb.
One of the only places I’ve ever wanted to vacation is Alaska, so I could volunteer passing out hot chocolate along the Iditarod dog sled race course. It’s not a trip I spend any time thinking about or planning (I have an equal aversion to cold weather and dogs), but rather the aftereffects of a …

It's already legal to discriminate in Georgia. Is it time for a statewide LGBT civil rights bill?
The biggest sticking point raised in Georgia’s latest fight over a so-called “religious freedom” bill was the possibility that passage of the bill would lead to more LGBT discrimination, with the most often-cited example being a business owner denying service to someone based on the business owner’s religious beliefs. Lost in the shuffle of the …

It’s about community. The Faeries talk about ‘the circle.’ It’s a nonhierarchical structure where everybody has a voice and there’s not a leader. It’s a funny tribe.
It had been nearly 10 years since the Stonewall Riots when the gay movement started to splinter in two directions. There were those who wanted to work within the system and do things like lobby legislators to affect change, and there were those who wanted to carve out an entirely new identity that didn’t have …

The GA Voice is a media outlet covering Georgia's LGBT communities.
Introduction
The Georgia Voice is an LGBT media outlet that publishes daily online and in print every other Friday. The Georgia Voice is published by The Georgia Voice, LLC, which was co-founded and is led by Laura Douglas-Brown and Christina Cash, who together have almost 25 years experience in managing the editorial and business departments of an Atlanta-based LGBT publication. Cash founded Southern Voice in 1988 and Douglas-Brown worked as a reporter there beginning in 1997 and was named Editor in 2006.

Southern Voice closed on Nov. 16, 2009 and left Atlanta's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities without a voice for the first time in almost 22 years. An institution since its inception in 1988, Southern Voice offered its loyal readership a professional and highly regarded publication that disseminated local and national news, timely information on events and organizations and commentary on LGBT culture and news of the day. Profitable since 1993, the newspaper was sold to Window Media in 1997 and enjoyed continued success for almost a decade.

With its majority owner, Avalon Equity Partners, in federal receivership and plagued by debt exacerbated by a deep recession, Window Media shuttered its chain of publications in three cities, including Atlanta, and filed for bankruptcy in November. Within a few days, Douglas-Brown and Cash developed a plan to fill the gap in Georgia.

A community meeting held Dec. 3, 2009, drew approximately 80 attendees, who voted overwhelmingly to name the new media outlet The Georgia Voice. Cash and Douglas-Brown then worked quickly to establish a corporate structure and hire an experienced staff to launch the new publication on March 19, 2010.

Six of the Georgia Voice’s seven staff members worked for Southern Voice during its 22-year history, including four who were key editorial/design employees at SoVo at the time of its closure. All seven Georgia Voice employees have experience in LGBT publications in Atlanta.

We are grateful for the overwhelming support we have received from the community and look forward to serving our readers and advertisers for many years to come.
