Black LGBT's all across the country yesterday celebrated the birthday and legacy of civil rights icon Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
LGBT Atlantan's also took the time to reflect on the contributions of gay and lesbian unsung heroes Bayard Rustin and Audre Lorde at the annual Rustin/Lorde breakfast with an estimated 200 people in attendance. Here's a few snapshots of the brilliant and diverse group of people who participated in the celebration.
