imageUnofficially but affectionately called Winter Pride, gay Atlanta turns out a whole mess of celebrations and commemorations honoring Martin Luther King Weekend featuring a bevy of special guests.

And the guests they do come out to play on black gay Atlanta’s second biggest weekend of the year after Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride over Labor Day (click for our coverage and photos). This weekend, think of names the likes of entertainer Kimbella (top photo) to Kandi Burruss of the “Real Housewives” (second photo), and even adult entertainer ReDICKulous (bottom photo).

Whether you’re grown and sexy or young and ready to bust out, whether you’re a woman for women, a man for men who shake their junk or want to see everybody mixing together, there’s something in the LGBT-MLK planner for you.

To see absolutely everything planned through Monday, just pick a day and click our detailed calendar listings for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

imageThose dozens of events all go down until sun-up each night before the big King Holiday, when just about everybody convenes on Monday for the Rustin/Lorde Breakfast, and then the LGBTs represent at the citywide Atlanta MLK Day March & Rally, even if the King Center heirs did give the gays a poke in the eye this week.

But for a hint at some of the bigger events to come, feast your eyes below on just a few of our favorites that welcome celebrity hosts as well as thousands of reveling and reverent participants.

You can find also find more details on all-weekend plans from promoters Traxx Atlanta and Traxxgirls, the Lion’s Den, Wassup N ATL, Ladies At Play, Rockstars Production, Meak Productions, RT Parties, Wet In ATL, and the Fab 5.
