“There is no question in my mind that this was indeed a turning point for Savannah’s GLBT community,” said Kevin Clark, director of Georgia Equality’s Savannah chapter.
“The absolutely incredible energy and enthusiasm exhibited by this group of people, including a large representation of our local colleges and universities, was and is absolutely amazing.”
The rally was part of a series of events around the country to mark the birthday of late gay activist and politician Harvey Milk. In addition to the Savannah chapter of Georgia Equality, sponsors included First City Network, Savannah Pride and Equality Across America.
“To continue and to build on this momentum we are discussing a meeting with the mayor with a group of college age participants from this rally,” Clark said. “The meeting will be focused on informing the mayor and Council that we expect action soon on our proposal for domestic partner benefits.”
