ATLANTA, Ga., July 20, 2021 — OUT Georgia Business Alliance has opened community nominations for the 2021 edition of its Most Influential LGBTQ+ Georgians list to be unveiled in late September 2021.

“After we unveiled our first-ever Most Influential LGBTQ+ Georgians list in 2020, we’re coming back to the community for input and guidance as we build our 2021 version to highlight those who are using their influence to impact the lives of LGBTQ+ people here in Georgia and beyond,” said Chris Lugo, OUT Georgia’s Executive Director.

LGBTQ+ Georgians are shaping education, technology, politics, business, healthcare, culture, entertainment, service, community, and many other areas critical to advancing a safe, inclusive, and equitable environment here in Georgia.

Now through September 3, OUT Georgia is asking the community to share your nominations for “Most Influential LGBTQ+ Georgians” who are making a true difference in the lives of others. Nominate a trailblazer who exemplifies integrity and progress through their leadership, voice, visibility, and action.

After submissions are received, a small committee will review, finalize, and publish the 2021 Most Influential Georgians List in September 2021. If your organization is interested in sponsoring this effort, please reach out to for details.

Most Influential Nominees should be Georgia residents from any category or sector and need not be an OUT Georgia Member; Nominations close September 3, 2021.
