A number of LGBT politicians were on hand to speak at the rally, including state Rep. Park Cannon (who paid tribute to the late Fulton County Commissioner Joan Garner), state Rep. Sam Park and Atlanta mayoral candidate and former Atlanta City Council President Cathy Woolard. Ally and Atlanta mayoral hopeful state Sen. Vincent Fort also addressed the audience.
“Policy matters. Elections matters. And you can count on on me stand up for you every day. I will never shy away from standing with the LGBT community publicly, forcefully, with everything I’ve got,” said Ossoff, who was joined at his side by his fiancé, Emory med student Alisha Kramer. “We are building a coalition that is based on working together to get things done. But, there can be no compromise on civil rights. There can be no compromise on human rights. And you’ll be able to count on me to fight for all of our civil rights and human rights.”
