In the summer of 1993, responding to an Atlanta ordinance that extended health benefits to partners of gay and lesbian city employees, officials in Cobb County, Georgia—which, as one newspaper describes it, “has a long history of producing politicians who hover somewhere between bold iconoclast and national embarrassment”— adopted a resolution condemning “the gay lifestyle” as “incompatible with the standards to which this community subscribes.” . Then, after community members were offended by a local theater group’s production of “Lips Together, Teeth Apart,” which references AIDS and homosexuals, the Cobb County commissioners voted to remove all county funding of the arts. As the commission voted, anti-gay activists filled the room, many holding signs reading, “THANK GOD FOR AIDS.” . As the area prepared for the 1996 Olympics, a sustained effort by local queer activists—including a large queer rights rally in Marietta, the county seat, on August 14, 1993, twenty-six years ago today—led the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games to exclude Cobb County sports facilities from consideration for use, a decision that cost the county an untold amount of revenue. #lgbthistory #HavePrideInHistory #Resist
