Atlanta’s Queer Justice League will host its first-ever open meeting Tuesday night at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer from 7-9 p.m.
The organization is seeking people interested in LGBT activism and will offer ways for participants to become more involved in local and national issues.
The QJL recently met with the staff of U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) after his office admitted a member of the senator’s staff left an anti-gay comment on the gay blog Joe.My.God. The staffer has since been "removed."
More than 200 counter-protesters meet members of the KKK at Augusta State University
The permit said 100 Ku Klux Klan members in hoods would be standing outside the gates of Augusta State University between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Oct. 23 to protest the faculty’s alleged embrace of LGBT issues. Instead, one dozen bedraggled-looking men in fatigues marched onto the lawn, shouted for about a half hour and left, leaving over 200 counter-protesters wondering what all the fuss had been about.
The Ku Klux Klan will be at Augusta State College later this month showing support of a counseling student who sued the university for forcing her to undergo a “remediation” program due to her anti-gay stances, according to the Augusta Chronicle.
The Chronicle reported today that Bobby Spurlock, “who identified himself as the imperial wizard knighthawk and grand dragon of South Carolina and North Carolina” said the KKK is protesting the university’s decision that Jennifer Keeton undergo a remediation program to learn more about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people after she told professors and students she believed homosexuality to be immoral.
