There’s a would-be revolution in local gay nightlife. Catch up with a rebel alliance of LGBT party people who hope that their monthly invasions of straight establishments take hold in Atlanta.
The startups call themselves the Welcoming Committee and have adapted an already popular idea called Guerilla Queer Bar and made it their own in cities including Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, DC. They brought the party to Atlanta in October and hit Flip-flops with a guest list of hundreds. For November, the first-Friday event landed at Shout with their followers in tow.
