AGLCC Community Awards Dinner

On this week’s episode, Bruce Logue and guest co-host, Dan Dunlop, of Dunlop Productions, hosted Cindy Brown and Sharon McMahon, Doug Roberts, and Tony Kearny, and shared information about the upcoming AGLCC Community Awards Dinner September 23.

Doug Roberts is a Certified Financial Planner with Ameriprise.  He helps his clients achieve their dreams for today,

A dynamic duo of wedding photographers in love, Cindy and Sharon, are ready to tell your love story. They’re
photographers by craft, but story-tellers at heart. And are dedicated to documenting marriage equality one
ceremony at a time. Well-known for C. Brown Photography, the ladies saw an opportunity to serve the needs of same-sex couples seeking photography for their weddings.

They’ve been civilly unionized in Vermont, married in Connecticut and vow-renewed here in Atlanta and would
love to share what they know about same-sex weddings with you.

Tony Kearny is Director of Corporate Partnerships with Planned Parenthood Southeast.  The organization believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout our service area, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability, or residence.

Planned Parenthood believes that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of the organization are essential to their well-being. They also believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual’s right to privacy.  Additionally, Planned Parenthood further believes that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships.
