With a brief Facebook post last month, a 24-year-old gay college student outside metro Atlanta came out. Not as gay but as a special friend. A companion for hire. You know, an escort. He won’t be slut-shamed and isn’t shy discussing his work, boyfriend, sex and personal fulfillment.
Gay redneck and food fight instigator Uncle Poodle is showing off his junk and playing up his ties to “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” as he cruises other Georgia men for sex, according to one man who received a nude pic and wants to sell it and his story.
Where gay men cruise in Atlanta—in public, face-to-face and without Grindr—is pretty fascinating. And hilarious. So we created an interactive map of the M4M Missed Connections on Craigslist. Click around the interactive map of where and what their ads say.
Bookish lesbian hero Rachel Maddow is driving her “Drift” publicity tour through Atlanta next month, titillating progressive fans who want an up-close view of the MSNBC host who can’t wait to find out which anti-gay wingnut she’ll take down next. While you scrape and clamor for tickets, here’s a dozen ways she’s worth every cent.
With a weighty mission, a group of gay Atlanta volunteers is launching a new organization and partnering with existing groups to reduce HIV stigma and fight the disease. Team Friendly: Atlanta has a pretty cute mascot, too. We ask all the right questions and find out what they’re all about.
