Georgia Voice is the media outlet of record for the LGBTQ community in Atlanta and throughout the state. With a twice-monthly print edition and a 24/7 updated website, Georgia Voice has proven to be indispensable to its readers since it launched in March, 2010. In its short history, Georgia Voice has earned numerous awards for its journalism and its design. In addition to its core products, Georgia Voice also annually publishes “Destination: Gay Atlanta,” the city’s official LGBTQ travel guide, in partnership with the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACVB).
Georgia Voice was founded by Chris Cash, Laura Douglas-Brown, and Tim Boyd. Cash founded Southern Voice in 1988 and sold the newspaper to Window Media in 1997. Douglas-Brown was Editor of Southern Voice when Window Media declared bankruptcy in November 2009. Boyd was in sales at Southern Voice in the 1990s and went on to create and manage a chain of luxury gift stores throughout the southeast. The three decided, soon after Southern Voice closed its doors in 2009, to launch a new LGBTQ newspaper for Atlanta. Together, they have more than 40 years of experience in newspaper publishing, entrepreneurship and business.
Boyd serves as Publisher and Managing Partner and Cash as Publisher Emeritus.
Georgia Voice editorial staff includes Deputy Editor & Digital Content Manager Katie Burkholder and Art Director Rob Boeger. Both are seasoned professionals who bring decades of experience and expertise to the newspaper. The editorial staff also includes numerous dedicated columnists, freelance writers, interns, and photographers.
