Gay Atlanta rallied at the State Capitol on Tuesday to deliver a resounding “thank you” to Gov. Nathan Deal for vetoing an anti-gay “religious freedom” bill.
“Today is a good day for all communities that worry about discrimination in our state and today is especially a good day for those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender,” said Jeff Graham (second photo), executive director of Georgia Equality and Georgians United Against Discrimination.
“It is a good day because thankfully Gov. Deal showed the leadership and conviction to say no to harmful legislation that would have opened the doors and could have been used as a license to discriminate against many Georgians but specifically those of us in the LGBT community,” he added.
