For 15 years, the Atlanta Eagle sign has marked the bar's nondescript presence above its entrance on Ponce de Leon Avenue in Midtown, but heavy rain and winds on Wednesday broke the sign off its pole.
One fan of the gay leather, levi and bear bar, Katrina Nicole Presko, started a campaign to raise $2,000 to replace the signage. Robby Kelley told Presko via Facebook the sign cost $2,000 when it was purchased 15 years ago. So the amount of the fundraiser may change when a new sign is picked out.
As they strutted and flexed in their finest leather gear and shared their darkest fantasies, the four men and one woman competing for Mr. and Ms. Atlanta Eagle on Saturday, April 13, were cheered on by hoots and hollers from more than 100 people watching the highlight event as part of Atlanta Leather Pride and the 26th anniversary of the Atlanta Eagle.
