Wig Out with MondoHomo

MondoHomo, the queer alterna-fest, returns to Atlanta this Memorial Day Weekend, but pre-festival events are already underway.

The third annual Wig Out event will be held at the Atlanta Eagle on Saturday, April 7, from 2 – 8 p.m. This year’s theme, “Queer Justice, Queer Beats!” will be a celebration of wigs, dancing and drag, according to event organizers.

“It’s a play on ‘no justice, no peace,’ the classic protest cry,” said MondoHomo co-founder Kiki Carr.

“MondoHomo is all about art and fun and politics. It sort of pulls that all together very well,” Carr continued.
