LBW: Three Big Events

I’m not in the Atlanta area this weekend; I’m taking the first flight out to Cali to go be best man at my friend’s wedding. But if you’re intown, there’s three big events going on to be aware of if you’re anywhere ITP:

  1. Atlanta Black Gay Pride
    Atlanta is the Black gay mecca; there’s really no disputing that. Annually over 40,000 Black gay men from around the globe descend on the A for fun and fellowship. The six-day long celebration starts Wednesday, August 31 and continues through the weekend, concluding with the Stand Up and Represent Black Pride March from the MLK Center to the Capitol building. Check out In the Life Atlanta for more information.
  2. Dragon*Con
    If you’re on a MARTA train and notice Rinoa Heartley, a couple of kissing Klingons and a spiky blue-haired woman in a red catsuit, then chances are you’re running into a few of the thousands of attendees to Dragon*Con, going on in its 8th year over at the Hyatt downtown. Pre-registration is preferred, but hell, it’s just fun to watch, eh?
  3. Montreux Jazz Festival
    The Woodruff Arts Center brings the famed Montreux Jazz Festival to its campus, brimming with the art and culture of its European namesake. Featured Atlanta artists include Takana Miyamoto, Life Force and International Groove Conspiracy. And you probably won’t see too many oddly dressed cats either.

Know of any other Labor Day Weekend events going on?
