Atlanta’s Queer Justice League will host its first-ever open meeting Tuesday night at Lutheran Church of the Redeemer from 7-9 p.m.
The organization is seeking people interested in LGBT activism and will offer ways for participants to become more involved in local and national issues.
The QJL recently met with the staff of U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) after his office admitted a member of the senator’s staff left an anti-gay comment on the gay blog Joe.My.God. The staffer has since been "removed."
The group also helped organize a counter-protest to a KKK rally held at Augusta State University after the school’s decision that counseling graduate student Jennifer Keeton must undergo a remediation program to learn more about LGBT people after she told professors she believed homosexuality to be immoral.
