UPDATE: MondoHomo a no-go for 2013 and forever

MondoHomo will not return Memorial Day weekend

MondoHomo, Atlanta's Memorial Day Weekend queer arts festival, is canceled, according to event co-founder Kiki Carr. The decision came earlier this year when organizers felt it was time to move on.

"I think it will reinvent itself," Carr said today about the future of the festival.

"Basically the core group of folks that started it are tired and want to move on other projects," she continued. "We've been slowly coming to that conclusion for a while, but probably came to an agreement in the last two months."

Yesterday was National Marriage Equality Day, an effort launched by Atlanta-based Equally Wed magazine to encourage consumers to patronize businesses that support same-sex marriage rights.  The response, originally focused on Starbucks but then expanded, is intended to counter Chick-fil-A and its anti-gay leadership in the wake of CEO Dan Cathy's recent interview where he stated his chicken chain was “guilty as charged” when it came to opposing marriage equality.

The event has garnered national media attention and almost 35,000 checked on Facebook that they planned to participate.

Equally Wed is also sponsoring a photo contest for the best pictures of those participating in National Marriage Equality Day.
