This is a story from 2013 but still very much relevant.
Mary Anne Adams moved to Atlanta in 1988 and since that time she has seen Atlanta's LGBT scene change dramatically. “One of the biggest changes that I have seen is the degree and level of outness from LGBTQ communities, both internally and externally. Despite the overt homophobia and ever-looming threats of violence, it’s been exhilarating to see young folks on MARTA and at public events showing their affection for each other and just being thems...

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.
