Welcome to The Pink Peach, a blog which covers news which is of interest or concern to LGBT and allied folks in Georgia outside of Atlanta. For too long, the main epicenter of LGBT news media has been located in Metro Atlanta – and for good reason! Metro ATL has the largest annual pride parades in Georgia – Atlanta Pride and Atlanta Black Pride, and is a mecca for LGBTs who are looking for some close respite from .
However, as shown in recent surveys and censuses, the LGBT population in Georgia lives in every one of our 159 counties – not just Fulton, Cobb, DeKalb, Clayton and Gwinett. These people – that is, of course, you, a reader who may live anywhere in Georgia – need a news source that matters to them and reaches out to them. I hope that this blog, The Pink Peach, will do what many other local news sources could not – become a beacon for LGBT folks in Georgia, no matter where you may be.
I hope to keep this blog updated frequently with news and information for your interest, as well as help in building our LGBT communities where we are – whether we are in the city or in the boonies. Let’s move forward!
