Transgender strip night to take over XS Ultra Lounge Wednesdays

Black Diamond Atlanta Transgender Gentlemen's Club

In what might be a first for Atlanta, a new transgender strip night will soon take over XS Ultra Lounge Wednesday nights. The weekly event, billed as “Black Diamond Atlanta Transgender Gentlemen's Club,” kicks off with a preview night April 24.

With two Pink Pony locations, a plethora of options on Cheshire Bridge and at least two all-male strip clubs, Atlanta is no stranger to adult entertainment.

Woman alleges rape by Swinging Richards strippers

An unidentified woman claims that she was raped by two male dancers at Swinging Richards, the gay-popular strip club, on June 9 after a night of heavy alcohol consumption.

The Atlanta Police Department's report on the incident states that the woman began the evening at a friend's house, where they consumed several alcoholic beverages. The pair then went to Blake's on the Park, a gay bar on 10th Street, and found themselves at Swinging Richards later in the evening. The woman's identity is being withheld by police.

The story was first reported by Atlanta's ABC affiliate WSB.

The report goes on to state the woman purchased a lap dance from one of the two alleged rapists, who then took her to a V.I.P. room with her male friend. In the V.I.P. room, the report states that the two strippers “bent her over a table and had sex with her.”
