Atlanta Gay News Flash

Lambda Legal Files Federal Lawsuit Over Georgia Marriage Ban

On Tuesday morning Lambda Legal filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of seven named plaintiffs arguing that Georgia’s gay marriage ban is a “violation of the rights under the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution caused by the State of Georgia’s exclusion of same-sex couples from the freedom to marry and the recognition of lawful marriages entered in other jurisdictions,” the lawsuit reads.

If you’ve been following similar lawsuits in other states you’ll notice that this lawsuit deals with both Georgia marriage rights and the state’s recognition of marriages performed in other states. This is important because some cases working their way through the court system do not ask for both questions to be answered. For example, federal judges in Ohio and Kentucky recently ordered those states to recognize gay marriages legally performed in other states. However, the cases did not go so far as to contemplate both scenarios.

This is a positive step in the fight for marriage equality in Georgia. For more information check out

Georgia Equality and the Marriage Matters Georgia campaign. You can read a copy of the complaint here.


Boy-Scouts

Church Defends Gay Scout Leader, Boy Scouts Revoke Church’s Charter

Rainier Beach United Methodist Church has a Boy Scouts troop and their leader happens to be gay. Who cares, right? Apparently the Boy Scouts care and they’ve revoked the troop’s charter because the church refused to fire the gay man. “As you are aware the policy of the Boy Scouts of America does not allow open or avowed homosexuals to serve as volunteer adult leaders,”CNN reports the Boy Scouts of America wrote to the church leadership in a letter. Despite the letter from the Boy Scouts, the pastor of the church “refused to remove McGrath from his post,” CNN reports. It wasn’t long before the church received another letter from the Boy Scouts, saying, “As a result of this refusal to comply with the policies, guidelines, rules and regulations of the Boy Scouts of America, Rainier Beach United Methodist Church is hereby advised that it is no longer an authorized chartered organization and may no longer use the Scouting program or any of its registered marks or brands.”

NYC Pride Names Grand Marshals, Atlanta Pride Accepting Nominations

Who do you think should be the Grand Marshal for the Atlanta Pride Parade? Click here to make a nomination! The Atlanta Pride Committee will be accepting nominations until Thursday, May 15.

Bill O’Reilly Suggest Opposing Marriage Equality Could Get You Hurt

For years gay men and women have been bullied and subject to violence and harassment from anti-gay conservatives. However, now that gays are more accepted in society it is the anti-gay bullies who are whining about being bullied. “Fox News host Bill O’Reilly became the latest right-wing media personality to frame gay rights supporters as bullies, baselessly alleging that support for marriage equality has risen so quickly because activists have threatened to ‘harm’ and ‘hurt’ opponents of same-sex marriage,” Media Matters for America points out. In the clip from “The O’Reilly Factor” below, Mr. O’Reilly brings up the CEO of Mozilla who gave a donation to an anti-gay group and was pressured to step down. This was his big example of how opposing marriage equality could get you hurt. Yes, being the face of a corporation and opposing a popular social issue can have consequences. However, that is incomparable to the type of intimidation the gay community faces. Anti-gay conservatives aren’t being beat up after strangers ask their sexual orientation. Anti-gay conservatives aren’t harassed for holding hands in public. Young anti-gay conservatives aren’t committing suicide because of the mental harassment they’ve faced. Things have changed dramatically for our community, but being gay can still get you “hurt.” When you look at the danger of being anti-gay versus the danger of being gay, O’Reilly’s suggestion holds laughably little water.

MLS Soccer Studs Coming To Atlanta

Major League Soccer announced Wednesday that its newest team will be right here in Atlanta starting in 2017. The team owner, Arthur Blank, is the same man who controls the Atlanta Falcons. So it should be no surprise that the new team’s colors will be red and black. Other details about the team (like what they will be named) haven’t been decided yet. However, we do know they’ll play in the new football stadium downtown which will be soccer-friendly.

Tom-of-Finland-2

Tom Of Finland Honored With Stamp Collection

Finland is honoring artist Touko Laaksonen, more commonly known as Tom of Finland, with a stamp collection that it describes as “confident and proud homoeroticism.” Tom of Finland is the creator of iconic gay illustrations enjoyed around the world. However, as Slate points out, “Finland isn’t notably LGBTQ-friendly; gay marriage has yet to be legalized, and citizens can only legally change their gender if they are surgically sterilized. (Before you gasp, note that 16 other European countries require the same).”

Egypt-Police-Raids

Egyptian Gays Fear Anti-Gay Government Raids

Gay life in Egypt is almost entirely underground– for good reason. Homosexuality is illegal in Egypt. However, the country still has “a flourishing underground gay community,” to use The Guardian‘s description. Until recently most gay Egyptians could avoid arrest by staying away from publicized gay parties and hangouts, however, gay Egyptians are now being arrested in their homes. “The latest and most concerning raid saw four men seized from their east Cairo apartment on 1 April within hours of signing the lease, according to activists. Within a week, the four were given jail terms of up to eight years – sentences unusual for both their length and the speed at which they were handed down,” The Guardian details.

Atlanta’s Largest Toga Party Hits Plaza Theatre


By D. David Kinney

Atlanta’s largest toga party returns next Thursday, April 17 at the Plaza Theatre, and it’s going to be an epic event. The gay owned and operated theatre is taking the classic “Animal House” college bash and recreating it with kegs, camaraderie, competition and togas. However, no Delta Tau Chi pledge class of ’62 throwback party could be complete without a bevy of red solo cups. Have no fear the Plaza Theatre will have plenty alongside the ice cold kegs. It’s the classic college experience without all of those boring classes to get in the way. 

What could be better than lots of guys running around in togas? How about scoring a great deal on tickets with Plaza Theatre’s incredible Scoutmob offer. It’s one of Scoutmob’s current “hand-picked” offers and for only $18 you get into the show, your own red solo cub with plenty of keg beer and an out-of-the-ordinary wicked fun experience.

Think you’ve got the best Caesar look? Enter the Plaza Theatre’s toga contest and see if you really do reign supreme. If your fraternity days are a bit hazy and you need a quick refresher on how to turn your crisp bed linens into a toga, check out this quick how-to:

The first screening of the movie is at 7:30 p.m., however, if you want to arrive with the fab crowd, we suggest arriving for the second screening at 9:45 p.m. This is going to be an insanely fun evening and would make a great date night!

College Jocks Make #SELFIE Video Parody


By D. David Kinney

The Wake Forest University men’s tennis team blew off a little steam recently by poking fun at the slowing fading #SELFIE craze. Shooting in locations throughout the Winston-Salem, NC campus, the video is a parody of The Chainsmokers’ #SELFIE. Maybe this super fun video is the brainy jocks letting their superego finally overcome the #SELFIE love… or maybe they’re just jumping in as fun-loving contrarians. Either way you can tell these guys had a great time making the video:

Want to see the original? Okay. But first let me take a #SELFIE:

Stephen Colbert Is Moving To CBS To Replace Letterman


By D. David Kinney

Stephen Colbert announced Thursday that he is leaving “The Colbert Report” and Comedy Central. He’s heading to CBS to takeover the “Late Show” where David Letterman has held comedy court since 1993 . Colbert is best know for his ultra right-wing character that goes by the same name, however, “Colbert will be leaving his right-wing persona behind along with his Comedy Central show,” Forbes is reporting. “The Colbert Report” will continue for another eight months before it officially ends. 

Despite Colbert’s right-wing character it is obvious that he strongly supports gay rights. Check out these two recent segments from “The Colbert Report”:
