Angel Action Atlanta

Angel Action Atlanta 3Support for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community was in full force at the Atlanta Gay Pride Parade today. Although the atmosphere was festive, colorful and charged with excitement, those of us in attendance were reminded of the challenges that continue to face this diverse population. Members from Angel Action Atlanta carried posters with the portraits of young people who had been murdered as a result of their sexual orientation or had been relentlessly bullied and driven to commit suicide. The mission of Angel Action Atlanta states…we quietly spread our wings between those who are grieving or celebrating our uniquenesses to shelter them from the hate of those who choose not to understand or accept us (http://www.angelactionatlanta.org/). The tee shirts under the angel robes read, “Stop the Hate.”
