When this year’s edition of the Southern Comfort Conference kicks off in suburban Atlanta today, it’s going to be noteworthy for several reasons.
In addition to the newsthat HRC President Chad Griffin will be one of the keynote speakers for it on Friday, it’s noteworthy for the bombshell news that this will be the last one in the Atlanta metro area for a while.
