Local LGBT groups host discussion on upcoming midterm elections tonight

Political panel to discuss Governor’s race

Several Atlanta-based LGBT organizations will hold a discussion panel on the upcoming Georgia gubernatorial election tonight. The panel will be moderated by internet radio host Miko Evans and will focus on the implications of the 2010 election for Georgia’s governor.

Members of Georgia Equality, AID Atlanta, Atlanta Lesbian Health Initiative, YouthPride and the Human Rights Campaign are scheduled to participate in the forum.

Georgia Equality is urging voters to vote against Republican candidate Nathan Deal and is promoting a “No. Deal.” campaign on Facebook targeted against Deal.

The panel discussion will take place Tuesday, Oct. 26, at the First Metropolitan Community Church of Atlanta (1379 Tullie Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30329) starting at 7:00 p.m.
