Add this share

imageWhat’s gayer than Hump Day itself? Glad you asked: Dine and Stride into Pride, Out on Film with Jim Grimsley, Midtown candidates, Melissa Ferrick at Eddie’s, and bars that never sleep.

Time to start Dine for Pride. 15% of your bill goes to Atlanta Pride every Wednesday in October at a different restaurant. Kicks off today @ Stella. All day. 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. After you fill up, let loose with the weekly Stride into Pride and its Yellow Party @ Bellissima. 7 p.m.

Out on Film continues at 5 p.m., including the film version of “Dream Boy” by local gay author Jim Grimsley (top photo), 9 p.m. Grimsley signs the novel that started it all @ Outwrite. 7:30 p.m.

Put ’em all in a room and see who you think should come out on top. “No Wrestling” rule in force, sorry. Midtown Candidates Mix & Mingle @ Spring4th Center. 6 p.m.

image More than another lesbian-with-guitar act. Melissa Ferrick (bottom photo) rocks @ Eddie’s Attic. 7:30 p.m.

Bar flies name their poison. The Honey Pot @ Mary’s. 8 p.m. Trivia @ Woofs. 8 p.m. Fantasy Girls and “Glee” @ Jungle. 10 p.m. Karaoke Idol @ Burkharts. 10:30 p.m.
