If it’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day then that means it’s the Bayard Rustin/Audre Lorde Breakfast, the LGBT Atlanta tradition which celebrated its 17th annual event on Jan. 15 at the Loudermilk Conference Center. This year’s theme was “Love Letters Across the Generations: Honoring Our Elders,” and special remembrances were made in honor of Joan Garner, the Fulton County Commissioner who died of cancer last April, and Antron-Reshaud Olukayode, the poet, painter and self-described “artivist” who died last November. Trans activist and LaGender, Inc. CEO Dee Dee Chamblee was also honored with The Fellowship of Reconciliation USA Peace Award for Local Hero.
