Tonight: W Hotel Midtown “Turns It Up” for HRC


There has  never been a more important, or critical time, to support our right to marry here in the United States, which is why W Hotels has started a worldwide campaign in partnership with HRC called  “TURN IT UP FOR CHANGE: Love Has No Limit. Fight for 50.”   The initiative is designed to amplify the fight for marriage equality through the power of music.  At each event, a portion of proceeds from bar sales will be donated to HRC’s fight for marriage equality, and the more states that pass marriage equality, the more funds W will donate. (For example, as of today, 19 states have legal same-sex marriage, so 19% of proceeds from upcoming events will be donated to the organization.) 

The event, hosted by the fabulous Edie Cheezburger, kicks off tonight at 7pm in the stunning 27th Floor Ballroom and features AVAN LAVA (photo above), DJ JD Sampson from the band Le Tigre, and Atlanta’s DJ Vicki Powell.  

Atlanta will play host to additional ”TURN IT UP FOR CHANGE” events at W Atlanta – Downtown on Thursday, November 13; W Atlanta – Buckhead on Thursday, December 11; and will return to W Atlanta – Midtown on Thursday, January 8.

So, come out tonight and have fun supporting HRC and marriage equality!

W Atlanta Midtown is located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta at 188 14th Street NE. For more information about W Atlanta – Midtown, please visit www.whotels.com/atlantamidtown

Demi Lovato Shows Her Pride And Dedicates Video To Equality


By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

This guy has a ‘Burn In Hell’ poster. You don’t have to hate, because my Jesus loves ALL“. The words come from pop sensation Demi Lovato who performed at the L.A. Pride parade just weeks ago, and they open the video for her new hit song  ‘Really Don’t Care’.

Demi Lovato has always been an avid supporter of the LGBT community and with this video she steps it up a notch by showing lots of footage from the parade showcasing everything from leather bears, bulges and french-kissing boys and girls to drag queens, unicorns, rainbows and sexy go-go boys. Celebrities like Perez Hilton, FENUXE favorite and Vampire Dairies star Kat Graham and even beau Wilmer Valderrama make brief appearances in the clip, and, of course, the interluding rap is undertaken by Cher Lloyd.

The video and song both ooze of confidence, carefree attitude … and of course PRIDE. Which is why we love it already. And we’re so digging the cool undercut ms. Lovato is flaunting on stage!

Take a look at the video below and tell us that you won’t be singing along to this tune on a dance floor some time soon? And if you’re not or of the message of the song and video don’t agree with you? Well, as the song says: We really don’t care!

PRIDE Kickball: A Kick In The Grass


By Dino Thompson-Sarmiento and Dean Boswell,

Atlanta has long been known as the gay capital of the South, and it’s no secret that LGBT residents of the ATL are not afraid to show their PRIDE. In fact, this October will mark the 44th year that LGBT Atlantans and our supporters will take to the streets to celebrate our community and all of the fabulousness we embody. So, when the owners of Go Kickball decided it was time to create a PRIDE division, there was only one city considered to act as host to the flagship group of PRIDE players. This summer, Go Kickball is proud to bring you PRIDE Kickball!

Go Kickball was actually started right here in Atlanta as well. In 2005, a group of friends decided that it would be a good idea to develop a social activity where grown-ups could relive a few childhood memories while breathing in the great outdoors… and maybe downing a few beers in the process. Since its inception, Go Kickball has grown to a network of over 60,000 players in over 40 cities across the U.S. As the premier adult social experience, Go Kickball is an affordable and fun way to meet people and make new friends. Best of all, Go Kickball is still growing at an incredible pace. PRIDE Kickball is expected to follow suit and grow just as rapidly.  

Just like Go Kickball, PRIDE Kickball will feature 16 teams per league and eight week seasons. This summer, the first season kicks off in June right here in Piedmont Park. The registration fee of $62 includes a full season of playing (every Monday night for eight weeks), a team t-shirt, and an end-of-season tournament and closing party. Blake’s on the Park, our bar sponsor will also host post-game cocktail hours each week, including drink specials that are available only for PRIDE Kickball team members. The Spotted Dog Agency is leading the pack in signing up team captains You can contact them at 404-428-0497 for help getting your team started today.

PRIDE Kickball is now accepting registrations for the summer season and is open to anyone 21+ who is either LGBT or a proud supporter of the LGBT community. Registration information and other details can be found at http://www.gokickball.com/atlanta/. The Atlanta PRIDE league plays on Monday nights at Piedmont Park. Use code ‘pride’ when registering for the league. So, come on Atlanta, show your PRIDE and join PRIDE Kickball today!

Boy Dance Party: Shake That Sack


By D. David Kinney
What happens when a bunch of straight guys are left alone with no women around? A boy dance party–“cause guys like to dance, too.” And why are straight guys busting a move after their girlfriends leave them alone? “Cause sometimes [they] like to dance with just us guys,” a funny new skit from Saturday Night Live (SNL) explains.

Even Bruce Willis can’t escape the urge to bust a move when there’s no women around. But don’t get your hopes up too high cause Taran Killam offers up a tongue in cheek str8 check: “It’s not homoerotic just a call for brotherly unity.” But there’s nothing wrong with a good boy dance party whether your gay or straight–especially during Pride weekend.

“Now it’s time for the ladies to get out so the men can twerk,” Bobby Moynihan calls out, but Bruce Willis isn’t having it. He has the party throw their “hands up in the air and shake that sack.”

Oh, straight guys… we’re not so different you and I. Enjoy this funny skit:

Team Little FENUXE Coming To Atlanta Pride


By D. David Kinney and Candace Hunziker

This year FENUXE has gone to the dogs… literally! We’re teaming up with Friends to the Forlorn, Lifeline Animal Project, Fulton County Animal Services, and DeKalb County Animal Services to feature adoptable pets during Pride this year. We’re calling our canine companions Team Little FENUXE and they’ll be walking with us in the Atlanta Pride Parade on Sunday, October 13th at 1 p.m. If you fall in love with a member of Team Little FENUXE during the parade you can adopt him or her!

If you’d like to meet Team Little FENUXE before the parade on Sunday we’re featuring them on FENUXE.com this week. We’ll introduce you to a different furry BFF every day.

After Pride this year we’ll also feature a weekly pet who is looking for a good home. If you’re looking for a furry new pal please consider adopting or fostering an animal in need. So, look for the FENUXE staff and Team Little FENUXE during the Atlanta Pride Parade and don’t forget to stop by our booth in Piedmont Park and say HEY!

Our first member of Team Little FENUXE is Pibbles:

Pibbles FENUXE Magazine

Pibbles was found with her brother Nibbles during a thunderstorm in Decatur. Nibbles was adopted, but Pibbles has spent 3 years being fostered by FENUXE staff member Candace. Pibbles is about 4 years old, spayed, and up-to-date on all of her vaccines. She is energetic, super affectionate, and well-behaved, too.  She loves people and gets along well with every dog she’s met. Her foster mom has had several dogs come into the house as fosters and Pibbles plays and loves with each one.  Although she’s been great with dogs, she is not fond of cats. Pibbles would be great with a very active person. She’d also make a great running companion. Plus, when you’re done running she loves to go home and snuggle up on the couch. Think she’s pretty in the picture and video below? She’s even more beautiful in person!  To see more pictures of Pibbles and to adopt her click here

Here is a video of Pibbles having fun in the snow:
