Atlanta Black Gay Pride Guide

Atlanta Black Gay Pride Guide

When a small group of friends got together over Labor Day weekend in 1996, they had no idea that their picnic would eventually grow into the world’s largest Black Gay Pride festival. The friends were celebrating their unique experience as members of Atlanta’s gay community and that spirit continues to this day at Atlanta Black Gay Pride.

This year the week-long festival is bigger than ever and is bringing together scores of different groups including community organizations, local government, nightlife promoters and area businesses. With so many groups represented the festival has something for everyone. From concerts and a film festival to the famous Labor Day Rock parties, it’s going to be an incredibly fun week in Atlanta.

To help you plan the perfect Atlanta Black Gay Pride we’ve assembled a schedule of the great things taking place. Some of the planned events cater specifically to men or women.

TomorrowWorld’s Magical Bus Voyage

TomorrowWorld’s Magical Bus Voyage

By Dustin Shrader

Seat-belts, everyone! And all hail TomorrowWorld’s Magical Bus!

TomorrowWorld is happy to announce the Magical Bus Voyage package, which provides transportation from select major cities to and from the September festival. Known as America’s largest electronic music festival, the annual 3-day jam-session and 5-day camping adventure is held in the Chattahoochee Hills forest near Atlanta.

College kids, refugees and traveling music-lovers of all ages will be able to choose from a list of 28 cities including Miami, Orlando, Birmingham, Nashville, New Orleans and even New York City. The busses may make additional pick ups en route; therefore, giving you an opportunity to make some new friends and bond over your love of psychedelic, electro-beats.

These are no down-trodden yellow, school buses, either.The Magical Coach Buses will be equipped with the necessary comforts in order to better enjoy a long journey. Round trip voyages start at $79, while actual festival passes must be purchased separately. Pricing of bus tickets depend on the proximity of your city to TomorrowWorld Festival. The luxury busses depart on Thursday, Sept. 25th and will return you to your home city on Monday, Sept. 29th.

If interested in this opportunity to make your TomorrowWorld experience even more out of this world, further information can be acquired at TomorrowWorld.com/busvoyage.

Poppycock, Dragons & Liquid Sky. Atlanta Cotillion Kicks Off Summer.

Poppycock, Dragons & Liquid Sky. Atlanta Cotillion Kicks Off Summer.

By D. David Kinney

There is nothing better than having a good time for a good cause, and Atlanta Cotillion set the bar this past weekend with a fantastic event. Atlanta Cotillion’s “Cirque de Nuit en Rouge” took place at the beautiful new Delta Flight Museum on the first day of summer, June 21st. The museum first opened last week on June 17 and Atlanta Cotillion was the venue’s first outside event.

Guests were of course fabulously dressed in outfits ranging from relaxed tuxedos and cocktail wear to uber creative and larger-than-life costumes. Wearing one the fiercest looks of the night, Prince Poppycock delighted the crowd with two songs. You may remember him as the powerful voice that graced the “America’s Got Talent” stage in 2010. He quickly captured America’s attention on the show and went on to eventually come in fourth place. Joining Prince Poppycock with standout performances was the Dragon House Dance Crew from “So You Think You Can Dance” and Atlanta’s very own Liquid Sky.

Here are some photos that we snapped at the event!

Photos: Lance Bass Joins Atlantans For World Record Breaking Toast

Photos: Lance Bass Joins Atlantans For World Record Breaking Toast

By D. David Kinney 

Gay Atlantans and allies filled the W Hotel Midtown on Monday night to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Arms-Linked Toast. The event was the launch of Freedom to Marry’s #ToastToMarriage campaign. Joining in on the record breaking fun was Lance Bass and his fiancé, Michael Turchin. Latrice Royale was also on hand to toast marriage equality after two nights of shows at Burkhart’s Pub.

#ToastToMarriage is a partnership between SKYY Vodka and Freedom To Marry, so naturally guests were drinking a cocktail called the SKYY Vodka Proposal. Before the big toast got underway, FENUXE spoke to Lance Bass about why he was excited for the campaign launch: “I’m from Mississippi so I’m proud to be here as #ToastToMarriage launches in the South here in Atlanta.” When we asked him about his favorite cocktail for a special toast he paused, smiled for a moment and revealed it would have to include SKYY Georgia Peach.

According to materials provided to press at the event: “[#ToastToMarry is] a national campaign to draw together communities to increase visibility and raise funds to support public education programs in places where same-sex couples are currently excluded from marrying.”

If you don’t live in Atlanta you can still catch one of #ToastToMarriage’s future events. They’ll be traveling to Fort Lauderdale, Philadelphia, Columbus, Chicago, New Orleans, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Here are some of the photos we snapped during the event:
