Message from Darian on his new position:
I’m excited to announce that I’ve accepted a new position as Editor of The Georgia Voice! I will be relocating back to Atlanta next month to begin working with one of the most talented and supportive team of media professionals dedicated to covering stories of local and national importance to Georgia’s LGBT communities. I’m humbled by their faith in my ability and eager to build upon the success of my predecessor Dyana Bagby.
With this new role, I will become the first African-American editor of The Georgia Voice and the face of the publication. It is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. I look forward to returning home to help tell the stories of one of the most vibrant and diverse LGBT communities in the nation.
