Following yesterday’s (November 30) runoff election in Atlanta, several LGBTQ and allied candidates won their races. Winning 63.7 percent of the vote, according to the New York Times, Andre Dickens will replace Keisha Lance Bottoms as Mayor of Atlanta.

Dickens was elected in 2013 to the Post 3 at-large seat on the Atlanta City Council. In interviews with both Georgia Voice and the Solutions Not Punishment Collaborative, he expressed his dedication to addressing issues impacting LGBTQ Atlantans, like anti-transgender violence, the handling of the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) funding, and Atlanta’s HIV epidemic.
