ATLANTA, GA — (11-25-20) — Atlanta Democratic Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has appointed the city’s first director of LGBTQ affairs last week as part of her “equity agenda” for 2021.

Mayor Bottoms nominated Malik Brown to serve in the full-time position which will act as an adviser to the city and the Mayor’s office. Malik Brown was promoted from his previous role as LGBTQ affairs coordinator.

“My hope is that we create institutional and equitable change for LGBTQ Atlantans,” Brown told NBC News on Wednesday. “One day Mayor Bottoms and I won’t be at Atlanta City Hall anymore, but our hope is that the LGBTQ-supportive infrastructure that we’ve created will still be here.” said Brown.

In his position, Brown said he will offer recommendations to the mayor and City Hall on LGBTQ efforts and suggest ideas to the city and state legislatures.
