Saturday ALHI events plead: ‘Save the TaTas’

imageThe Atlanta Lesbian Health Initiative and Bellissima Lounge want you to remember lesbian breasts. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the ‘Titty Titty Bang Bang’ party and ‘Health Fair 2 Go’ each takes matters firmly in hand.


But seriously, folks, ALHI looks out for the good health of all LGBT people on Saturday at Health Fair 2 Go. From noon – 4 p.m., the organization teams up with the doctors of Piedmont Hospital to provide free screenings–for anyone who identifies as L, G, B or T, with or without insurance.

Pretty sweet deal, really. And just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In addition to breast exams, screenings at the fair include HIV tests, body mass index, glucose and blood pressure. If you are interested in a breast exam, you must register in advance by calling the Health Initiative at 404-688-2524. Piedmont doctors will be on hand to answer questions, and ALHI can help qualified persons find affordable follow-up treatments at their partner clinics. A limited number of free flu shots for under- and or un-insured participants are also planned, so come early for those.

imageIn no time flat, you’ll be all tested and ready for a party to benefit the Health Initiative’s great year-round programs. That’s where Titty Titty Bang Bang comes in.

The Saturday night event at Bellissima features DJs Vicki Powell (bottom photo) and Angie Terrell. Your $5 entry goes directly to ALHI, and you not only get to help but enjoy Bellissima’s Saturday night Flux party.

Flux and Vicki Powell have been rockin’ Bellissima with their own brand of fun for a while now, and there are always surprises in store. This is the first time Powell has come together with Angie Terrell of Bellissima’s Tryst parties for a double bill.

The Facebook invite asks you quite frankly to “Save the TaTas,” so it’s basically an offer you can’t refuse. Throw in drink specials all night, and it’s a party for breasts that we can all back… er, front. Oh, you know what we mean.
