ABOUT wayOUT ATLANTA

Welcome to the family Atlanta!  Our newest Chapter was announced early in 2022 and we couldn't be more thrilled that we finally have some southern representation!  When looking at new cities to expand to, Atlanta screamed to us.  Not only is there a huge blue dot of LGBT representation in an otherwise conservative state, but we got some amazing individuals who were ready to jump at the opportunity to help those in need.  Get ready, because we're about to raise some serious MNY in the ATL.

LGBTQ IN THE ATLANTA

Unlike many of our other city chapters, it took Atlanta much longer to develop an LGBT scene due to its geographic location and it's proximity to the Bible Belt.  It wasn't until the mid-1970s and 1980s, that the Georgian government first realized the the LGBT community,  and it wasn't until the late 1990s and even early-2000s that domestic partnership was recognized by the state.  Today, Atlanta acts as an LGBT magnet for many queer youth in the South, with a diverse and growing community.

We must remember that our greatest strength is in our love of life and colors, beauty and music, dancing and joy. That is our secret weapon. That is something that the opposition does not have. Keep those things near and dear to your heart because in times of war that will sustain you.
