Best of Atlanta: Shopping

Outwrite Bookstore and Coffeehouse wins two Best of Atlanta awards

After two months of online balloting and thousands of votes cast, we present the best of the best — our second annual GA Voice Best of Atlanta winners.

The selection process began in May, when we asked you, our readers, to nominate your favorites for dozens of awards in the categories of Community, People, Places, Eats, Shopping, Arts & Entertainment and Nightlife.

The top three finalists in each category made it through to the next round of voting. For the month of June, a multiple-choice ballot asked you to pick among the finalists for who really represents the finest in LGBT Georgia.

Thanks to everyone who voted, and congratulations to all of the worthy winners and runners up.

Target is low-hanging fruit

The gays are mad at Target because the corporation made a hefty campaign contribution to a man who is obviously anti-gay and who is running for governor of Minnesota.

Yes, this sucks. Anyone who works against us is an ass. So, see you later, “Dr.” Laura. I wouldn’t get a pap smear from her either, Kathy.

And this guy running for governor, whatever his name is, obviously is wrong and Target, as inclusive as it is with its non-discrimination statements and willingness to hire and offer benefits to LGBT people — well, it would have been better if they had not given $150,000 to someone who doesn’t believe their own employees deserve equal rights.
