Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms
Welcome to the City of Atlanta’s LGBTQ Affairs website. I am proud to stand with and celebrate the contributions of Atlanta’s LGBTQ community. As Mayor, I prioritized ensuring that Atlanta continues to be a city where our LGBTQ residents can thrive by naming the City’s first-ever Director of LGBTQ Affairs and establishing the inaugural Mayor’s LGBTQ Advisory Board within my first 100 days in office. Since making those appointments over two years ago, our Administration has worked tirelessly to bring awareness to LGBTQ issues, promote cultural diversity, and uplift all of our communities.
The City of Atlanta is committed to the fair treatment of all Atlantans, which includes our lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer residents and visitors. We have made significant gains towards the protection and advancement of Atlanta’s LGBTQ community, and strive to uphold our commitment to equality every day. It is my hope that our continued commitment to Atlanta’s LGBTQ community, alongside our work to better our city for all people, will move us closer to truly becoming One Atlanta.

60th Mayor of Atlanta
