Welcome to Atlanta...



On behalf of Mayor Shirley Franklin and the residents of the Atlanta metropolitan area… we welcome you (and especially your tax dollars) to Atlanta and the Annual Gay Pride weekend. Whether you arrive by plane, train, bus (don’t front cause you know some of you will be on Greyhound), or driving… please pick up a map of Atlanta from the nearest rental car desk or gas station and stop asking folks to “chill and show me around”, gas costs too much and you are not hardly interested in seeing the sites.

On Saturday… as you are cruising Lenox Mall we ask that you purchase something besides a Chickfila sandwich from the food court. (please also leave the straight folks alone while at Lenox for some reason they seem to forget what weekend it is… and always walk around questioning why is this mall gayer than usual).

On Sunday… while hanging out at the 1st Annual Unity Picnic in Piedmont Park keep two things in mind: 1) the park closes at dark and 2) stay away from those bushes by the tennis courts. On Monday (Tuesday if you just must) we ask that you pack your bags and take only what you brought with you or have receipts for and go home… Atlanta is currently at its homo resident limit and currently over our traffic capacities, so no new residents at this time!! (one exception to this rule: tall, light, masculine, educated, attractive, over 25 but under 35, employed, single with a great sense of humor and beautiful thighs and smile… otherwise you gotta go)

On the serious tip while here make sure you check out the events hosted by In the Life Atlanta and the hottest parties of the weekend brought to you by the Lions Den.

Sincerely,
The Atlanta Welcoming Committee

You know what... the ATL ain't got nufin' fo' me... LOL
....but seriously, have a great and safe time. I'm with Clay... even with damp, cool weather I still think NYC will offer a better time with 1/2 the folks - since the exodus from Gotahm will begin tomorrow.

Peace, 2 fingas to all my southern dames!

having lived here once before i have been to ATL Pride several times, it was actually my first pride back in 1998 or something around then, and I must say on the party front it has to be one of the best. There are always numerous parties and clubs open of which all of them will be packed.

I remember last year there were 4 clubs geared just to men on a Sunday and all of them were packed!
But ITLA also is putting on some other events like the Unity Picnic and the Film Festival which will also be definitely enjoyable.

So who cares if you staying in NYC :-P

I'm cracking up at the Lenox Mall scenario; isn't that a mess?! You can see the women clutching their men in fear. I stay away from that area on Pride weekend.

This year's events are off the chain (I wrote about it here). There's more than enough different kinds of things going on to keep folk entertained.

Please dont go into the bushes at peidmont.

Cocoa Rican said...

RED! RED! Is that any way to speak to your company? LOL
Keepin' it real... I haven't been to ATL since the early 90s, so my perspective on the place is skewed.
I'm sure it's HOT, I mean when you put that many phine-azz red men in one city you can only sizzle! LOL

I'll hold down the fort for the red men up norf... :)
