ATLANTA LGBT COMMUNITY TAKES A STAND TO PROTECT LANDMARK ESTABLISHMENTS

Gay Georgia, Inc. (GAGA) is launching its first petition drive this month to save a local LGBT landmark -- Tokyo Valentino on Cheshire Bridge Rd.

DATE: April 2018
PLACE:    Atlanta
INTERVIEW OPS: Available upon request

Tokyo Valentino is being threatened with closure by the City of Atlanta and needs community support. This location is important to our LGBT identity. Open since 1995, Tokyo Valentino has been a safe harbor for the community, and has allowed us to celebrate our diversity.

We cannot afford to lose another landmark establishment. So many of our LGBT locations are now permanently closed or under attack -- including Backstreet, Jungle, Burkhart's, Blake’s and The Eagle. If we lose our culture then we also lose our identity as gay Georgians. We have fought for acceptance…now we need to fight to preserve it.

Please sign the petition to stop the City of Atlanta from closing Tokyo Valentino. It will only take a few clicks.

GAGA works to preserve LGBT cultural and entertainment locations important to maintaining the identity and safety of gay Georgians. These locations offer safe havens for our community free from harassment and violence. They are hard earned and not easy to replace for LGBT business owners.

Gay Georgia, Inc. (GAGA) is a state-registered political action committee (non-candidate committee) in the State of Georgia. For more information, visit gagapac.com
