Gay Atlanta camps it up for Halloween kickoff

Add this share

From superheroes to cavemen, Hillary Clinton, jocks, warriors and favorites from the '80s, gay Atlanta did what it does best on Saturday: camped it up for a Halloween fundraiser.

Hundreds of people, couples and groups offered their creative costumes, just like we hoped, and pulled out all the stops for Traveling Through Time at W Atlanta – Midtown. The Jerusalem House event serves as an unofficial kickoff to a big gay Halloween.

A host of judges – MetroFresh owner Mitchell Anderson, Naked Health hunk Adam Gates and inspiring “RuPaul's Drag Race” competitor Trinity K. Bonet – helped pick winners for the costume contest, which included $3,000 in prizes. WSB's Jovita Moore also reprised her role on the judge's panel. Costume contest winners include Joining SNL (Halloween Krewe), Lord Raven (Group) and Baton Bob (Individual). No, not that Baton Bob. This one.

And that gyrating boxer from last year's event? He went Indian (top photo right). 

The non-profit thanked its supporters on Sunday.

Goodness, doesn’t time fly when you’re at Atlanta’s best Halloween party and our biggest fundraiser! Thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, celebrity judges, and gorgeous guests for Traveling Through Time with us. Here’s to a brighter future for all!
