Atlanta, the Gay Mecca

Black gays bow down and pray towards Atlanta five times a day, now that it has become the gay Mecca of the United States. Although Atlanta has less black gays than other large cities, it seems that you can go without being harassed while standing in front of a gay club in Atlanta, which makes it a holy city for the black gay community.


The Black Gay Festival, the Ramadan of the gay Mecca, is held in Atlanta over the Labor Day weekend. Adams of Zami, which awards national scholarships for black gays and lesbians, said, “It was important to have a day where the black gay person could feel some pride. The regular gay pride parade wasn’t enough and it wasn’t geared towards the black community. How can you feel pride when middle aged white men wear funny clothes and sashay down the street? The black community needed something that ‘kept it real’, but was still gay.”


The real story.

I've said it before and I'll say it again..."Where's Sherman when ya need him?"

(and for you historically challenged folks, Sherman is normally held accountable for the burning of Atlanta)

I was trying to measure pride amongst gays. It seems that the parades are not enough to instill pride, they need a festival.

I thought regular old Mecca was pretty gay by itself.

"The black community needed something that ‘kept it real’, but was still gay."

Not only is Dr. Phat Tony a huge fan of bestiality, He also loves to attend gay pride festivities.
