Mayors Against LGBTQ Discrimination Welcomes Mayor Joseph Geierman Posted on April 3, 2020

Mayors Against LGBTQ Discrimination, the nationwide coalition of Mayors working to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination, welcomes Mayor Joseph Geierman of Doraville, GA to the coalition.

“Doraville is one of the first cities in Georgia to have a non-discrimination ordinance that covers discrimination against LGBTQ individuals. Our city┬áhas participated in the Metro Atlanta Pride Parade for the last 2 years. In 2019, I was one of the organizers of the city’s own events for LGBTQ Pride.”

“In 2019, Doraville submitted for the HRC’s Municipal Equality Index for the first time. At that time, the city received a score of 78/100 – one of the highest scores in Georgia, and we are going to work to improve it. As an openly gay man, I am proud to have the chance to represent EVERYONE in Doraville.”

The Mayors Against LGBTQ Discrimination coalition boasts over 300 members from all 50 states the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
