Stonewall: Evening for Equality honors LGBT leaders, allies

A crowd of more than 300 is expected for the eighth annual Evening for Equality, the biggest event of the year for Georgia Equality, the state’s largest LGBT rights advocacy organization.

As part of the evening, Georgia Equality presents its Equality Awards to leaders in the local LGBT community. The awards recognize and celebrate the contributions of leaders in the movement to advance fairness, safety and opportunity for Georgia’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and allied communities.

This year a special award, the Champion for Equality Award, will be given to U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), who is a recognized leader in the civil rights movement and a long time LGBT ally.
