LGBT youth from Georgia share their stories as part of photo-journalism online project

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people are sharing their stories on the website, “We Are the Youth” that invites youth to share their stories of coming out, the challenges they face as a sexual minority and the triumphs they’ve achieved.

“We Are the Youth” is a “photographic journalism project chronicling the individual stories of LGBT youth in the United States” according to the website.

“Through photographic portraits and written interviews highlighting the participants’ voices, We Are the Youth captures the incredible diversity and uniqueness among the LGBT youth population,” the website adds. “We Are the Youth addresses the lack of visibility of LGBT young people by providing a space to share stories in an honest and respectful way.”

New gay club Kaos to open in Macon

Macon nightlife will get a new bar when Kaos has a soft opening on Oct. 22 and then its official grand opening over Halloween.

Matt Neumann, publisher of David magazine and Southern Voice newspaper, is helping a friend open the new gay bar in the city, located about an hour and a half south of Atlanta. He says his position with the LGBT publications has nothing to do with his work to open Kaos.

“A friend asked me to help him open a gay bar in two weeks and so I’m helping him,” he says. He said the owner declined to be named publicly until after it officially opens.
