Atlantans joined in the celebrations earlier this month when a federal judge ruled that Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in California, was unconstitutional. Sure, the case is being appealed, but we can still rejoice in the strongly worded ruling that affirmed our rights as lesbian and gay Americans.
All of the Prop 8 revelry made me think about places where I could truly be myself and grab my partner’s hand on the table and say, “I love you.” I’m not a big PDA person, but I don’t see anything wrong with a quick kiss or hand-holding as long as it doesn’t turn into an adult movie.
Here are some gay places in Atlanta where you can give your same-sex partner affection without feeling awkward. You may even want to propose and plan your California wedding.
