A six-month plan for the Rush Center expansion was announced in April and since then volunteers and staff have renovated a new event space as well as a build out of the current facility on DeKalb Avenue in Inman Park.

The Rush Center, named for longtime LGBT activist Phillip Rush, is a collaborative effort between Georgia Equality and The Health Initiative and is the home for numerous LGBT and progressive organizations as well as provides meeting space for such groups.
