Fenuxe auctioned off its 10 Best Gay Bachelors on Saturday, delighting a crowd of gay men and helping to raise $17,000 for AID Atlanta.
Readers of the magazine voted to narrow a list of 40 bachelors down to 10, which were unveiled—and occasionally groped by their drag queen escorts—onstage Saturday during the event at Raw Space in Castleberry Hill. Bidders shelled out cash to win a date with each bachelor.
Fenuxe said Monday that proceeds from the event—which included the bachelor auction and raffle—were more than $17,000. That will help AID Atlanta fund its free HIV testing clinic. Last year’s event raised about $6,000.
