The Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce will take time to honor the creator of one of Atlanta’s iconic gay landmarks, Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse, at its annual Community Awards Dinner on Aug. 26.
The AGLCC Awards will also celebrate other business leaders who help their companies not only survive, or turn a profit, but go out of their way to help the community. Chamber Vice President Geoff Bieger said the awards, given in six categories, focus on those who use their positions productively.
“I think historically businesses haven’t taken the active role in the community that I think they should. So, I think it’s important to take one night a year to sit back and recognize the work that we’re doing,” Bieger said.
