|Georgia Spotlight: Macon OUT|

For the past five years, a group of LGBT people have been gathering for dinner in and around Macon as a way to socialize in the city about 78 miles south of Atlanta.
“We’re not an official organization although we are talking about expanding to doing other things,” says Edric Floyd, a member of Macon OUT and also the co-president of Macon’s PFLAG group.
The dinners, held on the third Thursday of each month, attract anywhere from 10 to 30 people. They have been held in Macon, Warner Robbins and Milledgeville.
The dinners are traditionally made up of couples who are older and have outgrown the club scene, he adds.
Through a Yahoo group and a Facebook page, there are hundreds of people registered with Macon OUT, Floyd says. Last month, the group started a book club.
Macon OUT formed after Macon Pride disbanded around 2005.
'“We’re an extra outlet to meet people in the community,” he says.
