Georgia Equality joins our colleagues and friends in Augusta, GA and across the country in mourning the tragic loss of Rowan Feldhaus. Rowan had recently become a member of Georgia Equality’s Board of Directors after taking the courageous step to work with Lambda Legal and appeal an anti-trans decision from a judge who denied his petition to change his name.
His willingness to stand up and push back against injustice in his pursuit to live his best life will continue to be our inspiration as we reaffirm our commitment to fighting for LGBT equality in Augusta and across Georgia. Though Rowan is no longer with us, the impact of his courage will continue to be felt by transgender and other gender non-conforming individuals in our state for many years to come. We are grateful for his work, and grateful we had the chance to know him.
