Three years ago, Jennifer Maguire and Jami Siden did a poll and started asking around on social media where the ideal location for My Sister’s Room should be. The response was overwhelmingly in favor of one area—Midtown.
My Sister's Room's owners give more details on the move from East Atlanta to Midtown, with a grand re-opening slated for mid-July.

I figured it was just winter weight that needed to be shed until a series of signs showed me that I was living in a skinny-fat person purgatory just like I read about recently in a popular Facebook post.
Everything is better when you are in love. The air seems cleaner; birds sing louder, food tastes amazing and alcohol is even sweeter. Life has been good for my boyfriend, Shawn, and I this first year. We have experienced a lot, done some traveling, had some great laughs and indulged in great food with plenty …

Follow these guidelines for an optimum cruising experience during Atlanta's festival season.
As a moderate drinker, I find such promise in a noontime buzz. I assume the magic of being tipsy just after breakfast diminishes with frequency. My early drinking is usually limited to holidays and football months daylight liquor enhancing the seasonal optimism of both. But nothing commits oneself to having a damn good day like …

Being a black gay man in this culture can feel like being constantly at war: at war with yourself, at war with other black gay men, at war with the dominant culture.
Being a black gay man in this culture can feel like being constantly at war: at war with yourself, at war with other black gay men, at war with the dominant culture. Walking out the door can feel like walking out onto the battlefield. And so, we often endure an almost violent kind of loneliness …

Sometimes being gay and living in rural Georgia is not so bad.
I have filled these pages with the potential perils of being country gays, with all the optimism of a Falcons fan, but it would be folly of me to not express some of the quirky aspects of this sparsely populated, gun-heavy, beardtastic and truck-dense milieu. Although we express often that we live near Covington, we …

“It was just a fight amongst kids where offensive language was used but the fight was not because of perceived sexual orientation.”
Atlanta police will not be investigating the fight this week at New Schools of Carver as a hate crime. An APD police report states two students, Timothy Jefferson, 16, and Zyderryo Brown, 17, were taken to the emergency room after a major brawl broke out after school on Monday. The two told police they were …

When the Supreme Court of the United States hears arguments next Tuesday about marriage for same-sex couples, there is much more on the line than whether states can ban the licensing and recognition of marriage for same-sex couples.

The court could also decide what level of judicial scrutiny must be applied to laws that seek …

Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens is trying to ease some minds worried that his defense of the state’s same-sex marriage ban will foreshadow Alabama-level shenanigans should the Supreme Court legalize same-sex marriage in June.
Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens says Georgia will not do what Alabama did following the legalization of same-sex marriage there.

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.
