Georgia Equality
Gay Community Organizations Serving Savannah, GA

Georgia Equality is the political advocacy voice of Georgia's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender citizens and their allies. Founded in Atlanta in 1995, it has grown into a true statewide organization and is known nationally as one of the leaders among state and local LGBT groups.


And our influence is growing, resulting in a number of success stories, including:
  • Passage of the Georgia Anti-Domestic Terrorism Act of 2000 (hate crimes law)
  • Full funding of the AIDS Drug Assistance Program by the Georgia General Assembly and former Governor -Roy Barnes from 2001-2002
  • Domestic partnership benefits for the employees of four large Georgia-based companies: Coca-Cola, Atlanta Gas Light, BellSouth and Delta Air Lines
  • Helped elect Cathy Woolard, the first openly-gay and first woman to Atlanta City Council President and doubled gay representation on Atlanta City Council in the 2001 elections
  • Secured the first hearing in history for a state bill that would protect LGBT people from discrimination in the workplace
  • Worked with the Fulton Alliance of County Employees for GLBT employees to secure domestic partner benefits for Fulton county's gay and lesbian employees
