Take 5 with Fenuxe: Broc Martin and Jay Dempsey

AIDS walk is this Sunday October 16 in Piedmont Park (you can still register to walk by clicking here). In honor of that event this week’s “Take Five” will feature the two leading fundraisers on the Fenuxe Bachelor team: Broc Martin and Jay Dempsey. If you would like to donate to one (or both of them) click here. The bachelor with the most donations wins a trip to South Beach Miami, hosted by Lords Hotel & Sponsored by Delta Airlines.

Broc Martin

Broc is originally from Kentucky (and yes, he had shoes!) and moved to Atlanta in 2006. He works in creative marketing and volunteers in the community, being recently appointed Director of Development for Joining Hearts (Get involved! Joininghearts.org). In his spare time, Broc enjoys outdoor activities, traveling, trying new things, and being with friends.

What is your favorite thing about Atlanta?
You know, Atlanta is a great city. We get all seasons, we have great events, there’s always something to do, and I’ve made some really awesome friends here.

What is your ideal night in Atlanta?
I actually love a great board game night! Get some pals together, have some laughs, and make some memories I’ll – hopefully! – remember the next day.

What would be your perfect date night?
I prefer unconventional dates and ideally someplace we can just be ourselves and laugh our tails off. I’m a total goofball and love to have fun!

What is your guilty pleasure?
My newest obsession is Ben & Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream. Oh, and Hoarders. Together. Don’t judge.

If you could be stuck in an elevator with one person (living or dead) who would it be and why?
Well, if I had to be stuck in an elevator I would most certainly prefer the other person to be alive versus the alternative. How about Richard Dean Anderson? I’m sure after all of those MacGyver shows he’s bound to find a ridiculous way to get us out of there!

Who is your Celebrity Crush?
Ryan Gosling. Oh. My. Gaw!

Jay Dempsey

Jay Dempsey is a Georgia native who, after stints in a few other cities, settled in Atlanta in 2006 to join AID Atlanta as the Gay Men’s Outreach Program Coordinator. Though he’s moved on from AID Atlanta, he stays involved in the community by volunteering with Project Open Hand, Atlanta Cotillion and other organizations. Possibly addicted to social media, he really appreciates the small audience that laughs at the weird stuff he posts on Facebook and Twitter. And, he’s really enjoyed being part of Fenuxe Magazine’s first ever AIDS Walk Fundraising Challenge!

What is your favorite thing about Atlanta?
Living in Atlanta is great because I get to be close to a lot of people I love dearly. My family isn’t too far away from the city and most of my best friends live here.

What would be your perfect date night?
It should involve a stop at “Gladys Knight’s Chicken & Waffles.”

If you could be stuck in an elevator with one person (living or dead) who would it be and why?
I would want to be stuck with whoever could get me the eff out of that elevator. So, Chaz Bono.

What is your drag name?
Her name is Madge Bottomwood and every September she makes an appearance at (and almost gets kicked out of) the Atlanta Cotillion Ball. I know Tracy Elliot is proud.

    The most beautiful drag queen I has ever seen with an EDUMACATION TO BOOT….I never would have thunk that he was a boy until I noticed the small bump enhanced by ambient bar lighting under his gown made of crepe d’chine
