ATLANTA EAGLE RAIDED: PROTEST PLANNED

The information is still coming in, but here's some news links to get you started.  GLBT|ATL cannot vouch for the accuracy of the reports of behavior by police, employees, or patrons at this time, but what is clear is that this raid was conducted in a manner that demands scrutiny and response.

I know you haven't heard much from GLBT|ATL in quite a while, but we are not going to stand by while things like this happen in our own community.  We are planning a protest for tomorrow --TIME TBD SO PLEASE KEEP WATCH ON THIS BLOG -- and those interested can also find an event page related to the protest on Facebook:

We will post an update to this blog some time in the next 2-3 hours as the information coming in becomes more clear.  If you need to reach a representative of GLBT|ATL in the interim, we can be reached at 888-GLBT-ATL (888-452-8285).

  1. Is there somewhere that those of us without Facebook accounts can find protest details?

    Thanks for reporting, and thanks to the organizers for running with this.
