Q: What’s gay, has six legs, and will be at Atlanta’s Punchline Comedy Club on Jan. 24?
A: The Queer Queens of Qomedy!
Queer Queens of Qomedy, or QQQ, is the brainchild of producer and comedienne Poppy Champlin, featured on Showtime’s “Pride: The Gay and Lesbian Comedy Slam” special hosted by Bruce Vilanch.
For the past five years, Champlin has selected several lesbian comics and taken them to various cities to bring queer comedy to the people. Now in its sixth year and sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, Champlin’s QQQ Southern Tour will include fellow comics Vickie Shaw and Barb Neligan.
After two months of online balloting and thousands of votes cast, we present the best of the best — our second annual GA Voice Best of Atlanta winners.
The selection process began in May, when we asked you, our readers, to nominate your favorites for dozens of awards in the categories of Community, People, Places, Eats, Shopping, Arts & Entertainment and Nightlife.
The top three finalists in each category made it through to the next round of voting. For the month of June, a multiple-choice ballot asked you to pick among the finalists for who really represents the finest in LGBT Georgia.
Thanks to everyone who voted, and congratulations to all of the worthy winners and runners up.
We're now accepting nominations for GA Voice's 2011 Best of Atlanta awards
