Shirtless models? Check. Gay comedian and DJ? Check. Gay singers? Check. Street performer in drag? Check. Yep, the 10th anniversary celebration for Atlanta’s gay-owned Urban Body was, indeed, a big gay affair.
The business, which includes Urban Body Fitness and its upscale sister Urban Body Studios, marked its birthday on June 15 with fundraiser for Trees Atlanta in the expansive event space at Paris on Ponce.
Gun-toting and Beltline-tussling owner Rad Slough was on hand to raffle away prizes and prod the models during a show with fashions from DrewLewis. He shared emcee duties with gay funnyman Trey Toler. DJ Todd Skelton provided tunes between performances by Frisky Monkey and Guyton Maurice (top photo). Drag-clad street performer Baton Bob even performed, to the delight of the heavily gay audience and to the wonderment of the straight folks.
All this event needed to hike its gay factor even higher were shirtless firemen and a few Atlanta Cotillion debs. But every event can’t be that gay.
