06-25: Guerilla Queer Bar invades Atlanta

imageQueer activism goes on the road Thursday when a new grassroots group travels north of Buckhead to invade Johnny’s Hideaway.

It’s the launch event for Guerilla Queer Bar Atlanta, a group taking a well-worn concept successful in other cities and attempting it here.

Et tu, Perez Hilton?

imageContributing blogger Mike Alvear is an Atlanta-based columnist, author and TV personality who rants on sex, dating and pop culture while living at the corner of urge and merge. Find more from him at his blog.

The gay rights movement has always been pockmarked with ‘traitors’ from within (Roy Cohn, anyone?), but the treachery always came from the right, not the left.

That all changed recently when Perez Hilton posted x-rated pics of Dustin Lance Black, a beloved, rising star in the movement. Black won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for "Milk," Gus Van Zandt’s ferociously moving bio-pic. He burst into the limelight with a poignant acceptance speech aimed at lonely, isolated gay kids.

Anti-gay is the way in Ga. GOP gov’s race

imageBlogger Matt Hennie is the founder and managing editor of Project Q Atlanta. He’s a longtime Atlanta resident who’s worked in journalism since his days as a Purple Paladin at Furman University in the early ‘90s.

Anti-gay seems to be winning the day when it comes to the GOP in Georgia.

Two anti-gay candidates are leading the race to be the Republican candidate for governor next year. Though John Oxendine enjoys a big lead (35 percent) in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll, what we can enjoy in those numbers is that Karen Handel is a distant second place (11 percent). Both are anti-gay, but at least Oxendine has been open about it throughout his career.
