An Atlanta LGBTQ advisory board is meeting today, July 18, and Project Q reports that the public will not be allowed to attend.
The 39-member board is tasked with advising Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Open government advocates questioned the city’s decision.
A spokesperson for the mayor later told the publication that, “This is less of a meeting as it is an orientation for board members to meet each other, set expectations, and reinforce its purpose.” The spokesperson said future meetings will be open to the public.
