5 Videos To Warm You Up!

 By D. David Kinney

Our friends over at the Weather Channel aren’t making these incredibly low temperatures up! It’s a balmy 21 degrees right now and the low tonight in some parts of Atlanta will be 16 degrees. So stay inside, cuddle up and warm up with these 5 videos:

You may already know choreographer Yanis Marshall from his viral video last year dancing with friends throughout Paris. But the master of high heel dancing didn’t stop there. Want more Yanis? Check out his interpretation of Beyonce’s “Partition.”

Last September we featured a story about David Beckham’s H&M ad campaign. Why? Cause he’s hot and the photo shoot was great. So while the Polar Vortex gusts outside it’s the perfect time to enjoy this behind the scenes footage.

Who could forget the sexy and hilarious scene in “Crazy, Stupid, Love” between Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell? 

Clearly no list would be complete without one of Andrew Christian’s famous videos. Check out their most recent video that dropped just before Christmas.

Don’t forget to warm your heart this winter too by participating in Lost-n-Found Youth’s “Warm for the Winter” donation drive. Click here for more information. Please remember Atlanta’s homeless and especially homeless gay youth during this significant weather event. If you know of a young person who needs help or you need help yourself please contact Lost-n-Found Youth at (678) 856-7825.

Warm your heart even more with a donation to CHRIS Kids as well! CHRIS Kids has helped over 20,000 Atlanta children since 1981. You can sign up to give a monthly donation or donate just once. Click here for more information.

Cinco de Mayo Fiesta at Las Margaritas [Recap & Photos]

Arriving at Las Margaritas on Cinco de Mayo it becomes clear that you’re at a fiesta like no other in Atlanta. Shot stations with sexy shot boys, margaritas for only $5, a live band and orchestra, Mariah Balenciaga from “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and great Latin food were waiting for party goers at the annual Cinco de Mayo Carnival Extravaganza.

Worried about parking? No need to fear! Papi has arranged for convenient and free parking at the Heretic. A free shuttle will even pick you up and quickly whisk you away to the fiery Latin party. There are several lots charging to park, but drive past them and take advantage of the free parking. How often do you get free parking in Atlanta?

Even the occasional refreshing rain shower couldn’t keep the flamenco dancers and live band and orchestra down. With the music swelling and liquor flowing, partygoers are having a fantastic Sunday!

Check out FENUXE’s photos below from Las Margaritas:

Local Advocate Goes National with GLAAD

Atlanta’s Michael Lammons is making the rise! The LGBT advocate and Partner at global accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers has been named to the Board of Directors of The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the nation’s largest LGBT media advocacy group.

Whether it’s through his work as Chairman of PwC’s National GLBT Partner Advisory Board or one of the creators of PwC’s National LGBT affinity programs, Lammons is a crucial reason that PwC routinely scores 100’s on the HRC Equality Index. That national reach spreads to his work at the Out & Equal Executive Forum in New York City, a meeting of 50 elite LGBT corporate leaders who spread the gospel of workplace equality far and wide.

But Lammons isn’t just working from the inside to create a better world for the LGBT community: you can count CHRIS Kids and AID Atlanta on the list of local LGBT organizations that benefit from his involvement.

So whether it’s impacting boardroom equality inside global corporations or impacting the lives of homeless LGBT kids right outside our doors, Michael Lammons is a Fenuxe Man on the way up.
