International diva amps up gay Atlanta nightlife

Add this share

When a Latina singing sensation hits Atlanta to give some love to her gays, it has to be Club Rush. That’s how the all-night cabaret and dance club on Bufor Highway was the easy choice for Ana Barbara.

The diva made the stop on her U.S. gay bar tour on Friday to entertain the Club Papi crowd. The weekly gay party puts the Latin spice in gay Atlanta nightlife, and Barbara put her own flavor on top of that. Before and after her set, drag doyenne La Panocha and her go-go boys made sure to keep things hot.
