Columbus Ga – COLGAY Pride hosted the 3rd annual Town Hall in Columbus, GA on Thursday November 5th at the Columbus Public Library Auditorium. A panel discussion on Transgender issues was the focus. Chanel Haley, Transgender Inclusion Organizer for Georgia Equality attended to support the event as one of the invited panelist.
The purpose of the town hall was to make the public aware of the struggles and accomplishments of the LGBT community.
“We are part of the general community. We have the same values. We just want to be able to work and have fair housing health care and be able to use the restroom that aligns with our gender. It’s about equality. We’re not looking for any special treatment just equal treatment,” said Chanel Haley.
