Atlanta Pride Stonewall Month


The Atlanta Pride Committee (APC) has announced its full schedule of events for this year’s Stonewall Month. Most cities honor the Stonewall riots and celebrate with a Pride festival in June; however, when Atlanta was ravaged by the droughts from 2007 until 2009, the city forced all festivals out of Piedmont Park starting in 2008. In response, Atlanta Pride was moved to October and Stonewall Week was started to honor and recognize the historic anniversary.

Stonewall RiotLast year, with their pride cup running over, the APC decided to make the entire month of June Stonewall Month and the change ushered in a series of great new events. Now you can celebrate the LGBT movement almost every day in the month of June.

Atlanta Pride Executive Director, Buck Cooke, explained the move to October, “While many in our community bemoan our move to October for the Atlanta Pride Festival, we are excited to commemorate the anniversary of the 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn with a robust offering of educational programs, social gatherings, and community activities that run the gamut of the LGBTQ community in Atlanta!”

Not Your Mother’s Butter Ball


Nico Stoerner – Staff Writer, Content Manager

It’s not just a turkey, kids.

Professional Party Master Chris Coleman brings us the 10th Annual Butter Ball with even more glitz and glam than before.

On November 21st you will stroll into Amsterdam Atlanta, give a nod to the city skyline as you take your last sober breath of the evening. Upon entering you’ll be under the spell of DJ Power Infiniti whose performances are the stuff of urban legend. Often found in gender f#*ck!ng semi-drag and incredible costumes, Power Infiniti not only mixes the beats, he performs his music: Lip synching, dancing impossibly well choreographed routines alongside sexy performers, and generally bringing down the house.

In addition to this marvelous spectacle-come-circuit-icon will be performances from EJ Aviance & Motion. You know Aviance from Dragamaki at Nickiemotos… she invented it. Since then she has performed at venues such as Glitter Dome, Club Eleven50, Bazaar, and even the Black & Blue Festival in Montreal.

The house will be rocked. Trust.

These sassy performers come ready to top last year’s party (you remember the one – it was held at Club Life), and last year’s lineup is nothing to shake a stick at: DJ Manny Lehman and starlet EvaFeh were there working the partygoers into a lather. With 10 years experience putting this party together, we are sure to be in for a few surprises, too. This is definitely a party not to be missed.

*The best part? On Wednesday, November 21st starting at noon we will be giving away 15 tickets to this fantastic event. Similar to our Pride 2012 $2000 giveaway, we will be giving tickets to people who can answer trivia questions. The topics: Thanksgiving, gay culture (naturally), and anything else we can think of. Tickets will be given away every ten minutes until we run out.

Just come ready to churn – and burn off all that Thanksgiving butter…

Here’s the skinny:

WHAT: The 9th Annual Butter Ball
WHEN: November 21, 2012
WHERE: Amsterdam Atlanta
HOW: $5 until 10:30, $10 after

Urban Body Takes a Stand with Ben Cohen


Urban Body Studios has done it again.

Here’s the latest in their series of events to benefit charity – featuring a ‘Rockabilly’ inspired Hair, Tattoo, and Fashion show. (You may remember their 10 Year Anniversary event in June that benefitted Trees Atlanta).

The event, taking place September 15th from 7-10PM will be held in the chic Urban Body Studios itself. With beats from DJ Todd Skelton; bites from Radial
Cafe; fashion from Grease Mokeys and the Lucky Exchange; and retro hair stylings from none other than Urban Body Salon, this is sure to be a hot event.

Icing on top: proceeds go to benefit the Ben Cohen STANDUP Foundation which is committed to raising the awareness about the long-term effects of bullying. Although the foundation doesn’t focus solely on the LGBT community, they do give special attention to LGBT youth due to the prevalence of homophobia.

So if you’re still looking for something to do Saturday night, consider this great fashion show benefitting an even greater cause.

URBAN BODY STUDIOS

Dog Lovers Unite for the Disco Ball: 11-11-11!


What’s better than partying on a Friday night with your best friends with great food and an open bar and only spending $25 bucks to do so?  How about partying FOR your best friend?

This Friday night the Disco Ball will be held at HOBI (House of Blended Ink), fabulous artist and designer showroom located at 604 Marietta Street.   Hosted by Checka Cee of Wild 105.7, the Disco Ball is  a benefit for several atlanta animal charities including Friends to the Forlorn and Coalition to Unchain Dogs.  Both of these organizations do so much to help animals in Atlanta and they both need your help to continue their work.

Coalition to Unchain Dogs, Atlanta Chapter is headed by Kate Trahan – if you were watching the Pride Parade – you couldn”t miss their amazing black and yellow float complete with live dj. The Coalition is made up of a group of volunteers who help dogs live better lives by building fences in low income neighborhoods rather than leave them chained up all day long.

Friends to the Forlorn is run by Jason Flatt, a one man powerhouse of pitbull rescue supported by an amazing volunteer staff, who struggle to keep up with him. Besides rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming pit bulls, Friends to the Forlorn started an outreach program called Tales in the Hood, in which volunteers head out into neighborhoods and educate individuals about  responsible dog ownership.  The Tales from the Hood program has turned former breeders and dog fighters into advocates and now assists with routine veterinary care, vaccination, and dog food.

At the Disco Ball you will have the chance to party it up for a good cause while enjoying old school R & B, hip-hop, and disco classics mixed in with todays hits from DJ Deez.  Special guest Stepp Stewart, the fabulous dancing superstar from the Dr. Oz show, will be there bringing his energy and dance moves to keep the party jumping.

Tickets are only $25 and every penny raised goes to animal charities.  The event starts at 7 and ends at 11.  Event coordinators ask that you please purchase your tickets in advance to be sure you get your fill of the fantastic food provided by Varasanos Pizza in Buckhead.

Tickets can be purchased at http://FriendsToTheForlorn.eventbrite.com

Luck Be Atlanta



Luck Be Atlanta

There are cities across the country that would kill for even one great event per month in their city. Luckily for Atlantans we usually get a couple of great touring shows a month and this August is no exception. First, we get the pleasure of the classic musical Guys and Dolls presented at the Fox Theatre. Then Cirque De Soleil takes us on a fanciful excursion into the harmony between nature and humans when they perform Dralion at the Phillips Arena.

Guys and Dolls

This classic oddball, romantic comedy, musical is set in the mean, yet oddly musical, streets of New York. The play follows uptight Sarah Brown as she tries to reform high-rolling, gambler Sky Masterson. The story also follows engaged couple Nathan Detroit (always searching for a crap game) and his chronically ill fiancé Adelaide.

The two couples sing and dance their way through some of the most famous show tunes in the history of Broadway like: “Luck Be a Lady Tonight,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” and “Adelaide’s Lament.” The timeless score was created by the unsurpassed Frank Loesser.

Many people remember the 1955 movie version of Guys and Dolls that starred Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra, but if you have never seen it performed live you have no idea what you are missing. The original version debuted on Broadway in 1950 winning several Tony Awards during its run of 1200 performances.

Dralion

Cirque De Soleil is a band of roaming performers which combine dance, music and circus-style acrobatics into an impressive live art piece that shocks and awes every audience with death defying acts.

Dralion draws inspiration from the Eastern philosophy about the never ending quest for harmony between nature and humans. The name Dralion is derived by combing the dragon (symbolizing the East) and the lion (symbolizing the West).

According to ancient philosophers, the world is governed by four elements: air, water, fire, and earth. In Dralion each element is represented by a color that takes human form. From there cultures blend, Man and Nature become one and balance is achieved.

If you have the time you should definitely check out one or both of these amazing shows! Both shows will take you on fantastic journeys of music and dance!

A Few of Fenuxe’s Favorite Things!


It is 4PM on Tuesday in Atlanta and we all know that means it is time for Turn it Up Tuesdays!!! Today we are going to check out a couple of our new favorite things.

Wish

You think Nicki Minaj didn’t have any competition, but oh sista she does now!

Wish hails from Baltimore, but now calls the Big Apple home. She got her start signing choir tunes when she was 7 and quickly became a local “must see”. She moved to NYC and started throwing down some serious tracks with longtime friend and songwriter Donny Roc. They dropped a promo disc in 2009 and caught on like wildfire.

In 2010 she signed with Jive records (home to the one and only Brit Brit) and is ready to hit the music scene hard. Don’t try to pigeon hole her cuz she won’t take that. She blends the best in Rap, hip-hop, R&B and even a little alternative into some pretty dope ditties.

If you are ready to dance, turn your music loud and check out her video for “Feel Ur Beat”!

Also check her out more of her stuff at www.wishishere.com! You can even download her “Mix Tape” for free!!!

Ellie Goulding

We end Turn It Up Tuesday with the British chart-topping Ellie Goulding who will make an appreance in the ATL this weekend. Even if you don’t know the name chances are you have heard her music. Her latest song called “Lights” is being played all over the radio and the remixes are lighting up dances floors across the city.

See for yourself what all the fuss is about this Saturday 9PM at the Center Stage Theatre when she performs all her hits!

Check out her beats here!

YouthPride Presents EVOLVE!


YouthPride is holding their sixth annual EVOLVE LGBTQ Youth Suicide Prevention Gala tonight from 6pm – 10pm at the Bill Lowe Gallery in Midtown. This year’s honorary chairperson is Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed with music provided by DJ Travis Roache.

The event is held to help people understand the truth behind the issue of suicide in the LGBTQ community. As YouthPride states on their website; “We watch their TV shows, view their movies, buy their records, consume their brands, drink their beverages, and enjoy their establishments, but have they EVOLVE!-ed? See for yourself.”

YouthPride is expecting celebrities such as CNN’s Don Lemon, Fredericka Whitfield and Reggie Aqui. Also in attendance will be Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Suicide Prevention expert, Dr. Deborah Stone, who will offer advice and perspective.

Admission is free with donations being highly encouraged. YouthPride will also be providing free drinks and hor d’oeuvres as well as a silent auction full of surprises. People who want to support the cause, but can’t make the event can drop their donations off at the valet station. The event is sure to be a fun and rewarding time for all involved.

Support a great cause and have a ton of fun at the same time.
