Baby, you’re a firework — so get out and celebrate...
CommonCreativ, an Atlanta website and magazine billed as "common ground for creative professionals," is out with its count of "Atlanta's 50 Most Creative People." And as you can imagine, several prominent gay Atlantans make the list.
We love that CommonCreativ defines creativity broadly, including not only categories traditionally thought of as "art" but also activism, journalism, entrepreneurship, make-up and even public relations.
Picking out the gays from a list of creative people is a bit like finding the haystack, not the needle.
Kyle Keyser, a community activist and former mayoral candidate, announced plans to hold a vigil / rally on Jan. 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the steps of Atlanta’s City Hall.
The vigil is aimed at reminding city and community leaders of the impact of crime in 2010. A prayer service will be followed by a call for reduced crime in 2011 and beyond by asking the city’s leaders to address its root causes.
“It is my opinion that Mayor Reed has done a good job in his first year addressing our public safety infrastructure and the police department,” said Keyser, who is gay and ran a grassroots campaign for mayor in 2009, when Reed was elected.
