‘Hell of a Party’ warms faithful souls at ‘Church’

Add this share

The loyal parishioners celebrated three years of merriment, art, ping pong and drinks on Sunday at Atlanta’s gay-owned bar in Old Fourth Ward affectionately called “Church.”

Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium is a labor of dildo-necessitated love for Louisa’s other self, bar owner Grant Henry (photo in glasses). At Sunday’s third anniversary “Hell of a Party,” he held court with a bar full of his straight-inclusive alterna-queer followers.

True to form, that included a few surprises, two Pee Wee Hermans, plus a performance by national cult favorite singer/performance artist/clown Puddles Pity Party. And love, lots and lots of love.
