In the Life Atlanta, the non-profit organizer of the annual Black Gay Pride celebration, announced today a new president is stepping in to take over the reins of leading the organization.
Raymond Duke, who became president of ITLA in 2008, is stepping down from his post. The new president is Rickie Smith.
"While I will miss so many things about the role and responsibility of organizational leadership, I have built life changing relationships that I will cherish forever," Duke said in a prepared statement.
The new board of ITLA, in addition to President Smith, includes Secretary Tye Green, Treasurer Donnell Allen and Vice President Reginald Batiste as well as several dedicated board members.
ITLA celebrated its 16th anniversary over Labor Day weekend as the official organizer of Atlanta's Black Gay Pride, one of the largest such celebrations in the country.
