As LGBT and human rights activists call for the city to take action in the attack on two transgender women...
The executive director of YouthPride refused to discuss the status of the LGBT youth agency and its new location in West End today after the GA Voice visited the site.
The new address, noticed today on YouthPride’s website, is listed as 955 Washington Place SW, Atlanta. The address is posted at the very bottom of the page, but at the "contact us" link YouthPride's address is still listed as 1017 Edgewood Ave. YouthPride was evicted from its Edgewood Avenue home on June 1.

The photo of two young black men in a casual embrace on what appears to be a MARTA train has stirred up a blogosphere storm as some people take to hating the photo, accusing black men of being on the “down low” and a reason for higher rates of HIV in the African-American demographic.
The photo, apparently posted in a tweet by “WatchJ” has been viewed more than 21,000 times. WatchJ is apparently no fan of the gays — he titled the twitpic, “I DON’T GIVE A FUCK HOW SLEEPY YOU ARE” with the hashtag #NoExcuse.
I first saw this photo on a friend’s Facebook page and thought it was a beautiful image of regular life in Atlanta — two young black gay men showing affection toward each other.
