Still mad about the Eagle raid? Activists want you at tonight’s LGBT Police Advisory Board meeting

An activist angry with how the city has handled the aftermath of the unconstitutional Atlanta Eagle raid urges the bar's patrons and supporters to attend the Atlanta Police Department LGBT Advisory Board meeting tonight to show “strength in numbers.”

Laura Gentle is a straight ally who helped organize one of the first rallies to support the Eagle, days after the Atlanta Police Department raided the gay Midtown bar on Sept. 10, 2009. Gentle is using Facebook to urge more people to attend the meeting tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse.
