G.E. wants to ‘Rally the Vote ’08’

imageGeorgia Equality, the statewide gay rights group, wants your help to "Rally the Vote '08." The group is seeking RSVPs and sponsors for the Oct. 29 event, which they hope will raise funds to support its education and mobilization efforts for gay and lesbian voters. The suggested donation is $35. Georgia Equality announced the event in a statement sent to supporters today:
From local offices to the presidency, candidates for political office are spending more time and effort courting our community than ever before. Funds raised by the Rally the Vote event will support Georgia Equality’s work to educate and mobilize LGBT voters and support our ongoing work to advance fairness, safety and opportunity for LGBT citizens and their allies.

‘Pretty in Pink Bingo’ a popular draw

imageMore than 200 people packed the tables set up inside the Wild Mustang on Sept. 10 for "Pretty in Pink Bingo," the latest monthly installment of the long-running fund-raiser. The event, hosted by Bubba D. Licious, raises money for Pets Are Loving Support. The group provides pet care, including free food and basic veterinary care, and support to the companion pets of critically ill and disabled Atlantans. The next event, "Rodeo Bingo," is set for Oct. 8. The group is currently seeking donations of dry dog and cat food to compensate for the loss of its usual supplier. PALS is also in need of volunteers to help with the set up each month for its bingo events and delivery of pet food on the second Saturday of each month.

J.L. King touts new novel during stop

imageGay author J.L. King, an Atlantan when he's not touring the country touting a new book, stopped by Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse on Wednesday. He was, yes, promoting his newest work "Love is a Two-Way Street," the fictional tale of music mogul James Lamar "Juice" Kennedy and his ruthless drive for sex, money and power. And it's that J.L. King, the one who gained notoriety in 2004 with his book “On the Down Low: A Journey Into the Lives of ‘Straight’ Black Men Who Sleep With Men." View the Project Q Atlanta photo gallery from the event. There are two videos about King's new book after the jump.
