Gay business group honor local political strategist for lifetime achievement

Shapiro said today she was flattered by the honor while calling the AGLCC’s mission “crucial.”

“The Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce provides crucial support that enables LGBT-owned and LGBT-friendly businesses to grow and prosper. As a longtime fan of the organization, I’m flattered and honored to have been selected for this award,” Schapiro said.

The awards dinner will be held at the InterContinental Buckhead hotel. The awards, hosted this year by Emmy-winning television personality Brandon Rudat, are meant to recognize excellence in LGBT business.
