Grant Henry, the owner and "namesake" of Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium, had his iPhone stolen during Sunday Service last night and is asking the public for help.
Lesbian DJ Vicki Powell (and voted Best DJ by GA Voice readers three years in a row) was holding her popular gay-friendly Sunday Service at Church (what the bar is called by its loyal parishoners, er, patrons) when Henry, who was sitting at a table in the downstairs bar area, had his phone stolen while it was sitting on the table in front of him.
Gay Atlanta welcomes spring today as the annual Change of Seasons tea dance warms up The Georgian Terrace Hotel. Featuring DJs Vicki Powell and Mike Pope, the event is put on Joining Hearts, which raises funds to provide housing to people impacted by HIV.
With the origins of Pride rooted in a fight for a right to party, there’s no more fitting way to pay homage to Stonewall than a weekend full of blockbuster dances and good times. Atlanta’s clubs and party promoters recognize Pride weekend as the most vibrant of the year, and they’ve gone all out in their attempts to create memorable experiences for revelers.
“It would be a catastrophe for Atlanta not to have huge DJs coming in for Pride,” said promoter Chris Coleman, who has a cadre of heavy-hitting international DJs slated for his parties. “I think Atlanta’s got a lot in store for Pride, and a lot of us are stepping up by bringing the big-name DJs.”
Coleman helps kick-off Atlanta Pride’s festive weekend with a cocktail set at Whiskey Park in the W Midtown on Oct. 6. The “Stride into Pride” party takes place following Atlanta Pride’s commitment ceremony, and features the sounds of DJ Scorpio and $5 drink specials all night.
