Mecca for Black Gays & Lesbians

According to a recent article posted by the AP, Atlanta has become a mecca of sorts for black gays and lesbians. Atlanta now has the largest concentration of black same-sex couples of any other state in the South and is rapidly gaining on Chicago. Many new gay residents site reasons such as moderate cost of living, family roots, and some of best HIV-fighting resources in the nation. Also, each Labor Day the black gay festival, organized by In the Life Atlanta, has attendance of around 30,000 people.

Trust me. This doesn't exactly mean that the South is rolling out the welcome mat for us gay folks. But maybe, just maybe, the tide is turning.
