Besides getting to honor your favorites in a slew of categories across the LGBT-ATL, the actual “best” part of GA Voice’s “Best of Atlanta” voting is the resulting party. In this corner of gay Atlanta, everyone’s a winner.

That means that all of the nominees gathered on Thursday at the Georgian Terrace Hotel with the ultimate winners of the unlimited month-long voting spree. From People and Arts & Entertainment to Eats, Nightlife and Community, hundreds walked away with plaques, and even more enjoyed food, drinks, comedian Ian Aber and DJ Vicki Powell. 

Click the categories to find all the victors. We'll save you the trouble on one of them. For the fifth time, the winners' circle includes Project Q as the “Best LGBT Blog or Website.” We're honored to be named with our friends at Atlanta-based Equally Wed magazine. See who else took the catered cake and ate it too in our gallery below.
