Add this share

image4TH FRIDAY: The Atlanta Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce decided that one day wasn’t enough for its monthly 4th Friday networking event, so it expanded it to two days and dubbed it their biggest 4th Friday ever. Tonight, head to the newly-renovated Granada Hotel in Midtown around 5 p.m. At 6:30 p.m., the fun moves to the High Museum for a special showing of China’s Terracotta Army with reduced ticket prices. Part II gets started at 5:30 p.m. on Friday at Table 1280 at the High.

MOVIE AND MAKEOVER: YouthPride offers its movie and a makeover night, this time screening “Princess Dairies” while also offering makeovers. The evening, which begins at 6:30 p.m., is for LGBT youth from 13 to 24.

YOUNG LOVE: Author Lyndsey D’Arcangelo (photo) stops by Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse to read and discuss “The Trouble with Emily Dickenson,” a tale of innocent young love between a lesbian high school senior and the school’s beauty queen. 7:30 p.m.

FILM SCREENING: Join Charis Books & More for the screening of the second of seven segments of “Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick,” which draws attention to health and wellness issues.

COCKTAILS: The guys behind Social Tuesdays branch out with Hydrate Thursdays at the W Midtown’s Living Room. The event kicks off at 9 p.m.

COCKTAILS II: Thursday Night Cocktail continues its successful run inside the downstairs bar at Trois. The drinks start pouring at 9:30 p.m.
