HRC announces Atlanta community award winners

The director of an Atlanta HIV agency and an activist who fought to overturn "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" will be honored at this year's Human Rights Campaign Atlanta Gala Dinner, set for May 14.

Jeff Cleghorn, a retired Army major and Atlanta attorney, will receive the Dan Bradley Humanitarian Award from HRC. As a staff member and now board member with Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, Cleghorn worked to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on openly gay soldiers.

In December, Cleghorn was one of at least four Atlantans invited to the White House to see President Barack Obama sign legislation that will repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
