Anyone who’s kept an eye on the fight over the so-called ‘religious freedom’ bill over the past two legislative sessions is familiar with the way the soundbites have been delivered from both sides—in separate press conferences, in testimony to a committee, in one-on-one interviews in the press. Neither side has ever addressed the issue face-to-face …

I’m outspoken, but not as much as people believe. To be honest, I’m much more comfortable expressing myself through the written word than I am in situations where people have certain expectations about who I am before I even open my mouth to speak. Yet, I can’t fully relate to the fear that most people …

Most people in town know of Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium, or as most people call it, “Church.” There’s even a neon sign in the window saying “Church (It’s a bar!)” Well, meet Atlanta Beer & Hymns and Bar Church—it’s an actual church. Atlanta Beer & Hymns and Bar …

It’s a shame that Atlanta’s most iconic eateries are The Varsity, Chick-Fil-A and Waffle House, as the metro area has a buffet of more appetizing options. And the ATL’s culinary cred is on the upswing now as the city emerges from the burger and cupcake fads of the past few years, with new concepts and …

It took Chef Deborah VanTrece over 20 years to become an overnight success. Now it’s almost impossible to ask for restaurant recommendations in Atlanta without hearing the name “Twisted Soul Kitchen and Bar.” A former American Airlines flight attendant and founder of Edible Art Café and Gourmet Catering, VanTrece’s exposure to world cuisine during her …

Story

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.
