Add this share

imageNothing says “Gay Atlanta” like an art opening, new bar nights, sports in speedos, a display of hot male models, and a trio of plays—two about Christmas in drag and one about lesbian lawyers—all in one day.

Get to know artist Jack Kinley through the works in his first exhibit (top photo). “Under the Influence” @ Radial Cafe, all day. Read our preview.

There’s a lot of GLB around, even for youth. Now it’s T Time @ YouthPride. Today, 5:30 p.m.

Hey, sport. Basketball with Decatur Women’s Sports League, 7 p.m. Swimming with Atlanta Rainbow Trout, 7:30 p.m.

Paper trail. You’re invited to share your opinions about an effort to bring a new gay newspaper to town in the aftermath of the Southern Voice closure. The “Save SoVo” Community Meeting @ First Existentialist, 7 p.m.

Nothin’ could be gayer than a night at the theater. Well, except maybe these particular productions: Varla Jean Merman (bottom photo) in “Scrooge in the Rouge” @ 14th Street Playhouse, 8 p.m. Read our preview. Also: “A Tuna Christmas” @ Theatre in the Square, 8 p.m. “Fair Use” @ Actor’s Express, 8 p.m.

image All your bars with all your stars are open and pouring. See what they’re up to, including Papi’s Café Con Leche @ Heretic, 10 p.m.

New this week:

Your big break may be one contest performance away. Open Mic Thursday @ Bellissima, 7:30 p.m.

Thursdays at Halo are back, at least for December. Make it a success, and it could be the thing to do in 2010 too. Boyz Night Out @ Halo Lounge, 10 p.m.

There are even more gay things to do on today’s Gay Agenda. View the full list on Project Q Atlanta’s interactive community calendar. You can also submit your own events.
