Insider’s guide to gay Atlanta gets makeover

imagePerhaps no one was more surprised by the far-reaching success of the 2005 book “ATLANTAboy: An Insider’s Guide to Gay Atlanta” than the authors themselves.

Jordan McAuley and Matt Burkhalter, best friends since middle school in Buckhead, compiled the book after noticing travel books on other cities, but none on Atlanta.

“I thought it was a good idea, but I was blown away by the response,” Burkhalter says. “Straight people were telling us, ‘anyone would be interested in this stuff,’ and even people from Atlanta were learning things about local gay history that they didn’t know.”

The ill-informed at Georgia’s Gold Dome

imageWhen it comes to oral sex and male prostitutes, some prudish Georgia lawmakers want to use their influence to stifle research. They are using the state's budget crisis as an excuse.

But more reasoned people are trying to prevail. Today, it's the editorial board at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which calls the campaign by Rep. Calvin Hill (R-Canton) and Rep. Charlice Byrd (R-Woodstock) (photo) "ill-informed and embarrassing."

Karla Drenner wants your feedback—really

imageWhen lawmakers at the Gold Dome aren't fully occupied with instituting a poll tax on strippers or criticizing research on oral sex and male prostitutes, a few of the more responsible ones actually do something worthwhile -- they step out from the legislative bubble and meet with constituents.

That's exactly what state Rep. Karla Drenner, the Gold Dome's only openly gay lawmaker, is doing on Tuesday.
