Is there any better way to extend a holiday weekend than to dance all night with shirtless guys? Probably not — at least that’s the conclusion of veteran gay promoters Chris Coleman and Fernando Jardim, who came together again for Club Q over the long July 4th holiday weekend.
Their gambit is to recreate the all-night party scene of Backstreet, update the concept and refashion it into a signature event. Think holiday weekend, and Coleman and Jardim want you to think of them.
More specifically, think of Club Q and rocking the night away in an historic former church just south of downtown Atlanta. How decadent is that?
The concept proved popular for its debut over Memorial Day, so it returned to Legends earlier this month on July 4 (photos).
And Coleman teased us with this heads up: Club Q has Pride in its sights. DJ Paulo returns Oct. 9 to headline Club Q, Pride-style, from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. It’s $30 for general admission and $40 for the VIP treatment.
