Christmas: 14 gay things to do in Atlanta today

Add this share

imageThis is what all the build-up was about. How to celebrate “a traditional Jewish Christmas” along with ways for the rest of you to escape family into the loving arms of “family.”

Several Christmas Day religious services are among the offerings at the gay-friendly Christian congregations on our calendar.

They’re called the same thing, and they may have some of the same menu items. But for some reason, we bet they’re very different affairs: Christmas Dinner @ Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta, 2 p.m. Christmas Dinner @ Model T, 3:30 p.m.

Time was when a “traditional Jewish Christmas” consisted of a movie and Chinese food because those were the only establishments open. There are more options in the 21st Century, but if you love your traditions, we recommend “Nine” among the films opening today. Read our preview.

With the Christian holiday on Friday this year, check out the activities surrounding Shabbat Service with the gay-inclusive Congregation Bet Haverim, 6:30 p.m.

When you’ve done all the family you can handle, shake it off at bars and clubs open and pouring queer cheer tonight.

There are even more gay things to do on today’s Gay Agenda. View the full list on Project Q Atlanta’s interactive community calendar. You can also submit your own events.
