Join MAAP and our community partner, Bill Kaelin Marketing for the True Face of Stonewall, a panel discussion hosted by our friends at AC Hotel by Marriott, Atlanta Midtown. This event commemorates the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and acknowledges the pivotal and courageous roll the transgender community has played in the fight for LGBT rights – both in the past and present.
The Stonewall conversation aims to salute the past, acknowledge the present, and envision the future state of LGBTQ+ civil rights through the stories and experiences of our Transgender and Non-Binary friends and family.
Networking begins at 6:00pm. The first 30 guests will receive a glass of champagne or wine, compliments of the AC Hotel. At 6:45pm, we will move into the AC Lounge for our panel discussion.
