Fans react to Baton Bob’s “White Lesbian Bitch” fireworks display

There were plenty of fireworks Thursday night on Atlanta street performer Baton Bob’s Facebook page. Following an altercation with a fan at the Peachtree Road Race, the city’s alleged "Ambassador of Mirth" took to his Facebook page and posted this update to fans:

Tweets of the Day: Kasim Reed, the AJC, and Gay Marriage Edition

Sticking by Komen, Fashion Cares celebrates 20 years of stylish giving

As always, supporters eagerly anticipating the city's 20th annual Jeffrey Fashion Cares Monday night at the American Cancer Society Center downtown will likely spend the weekend searching for just the right outfit to wear to the unofficial start of the fall social season.

Out on Film concludes with juror selections, sold out “Judas Kiss” screening

The city's 24th annual LGBT film festival concluded Thursday night with a sold-out screening of "Judas Kiss," director J.T. Tepnapa's provocative venture into magical realism. The 2011 Out on Film Juror Awards were also announced at the festival's closing screening. Festival director Jim Farmer was kind enough to email the list to us before turning off his phone and getting some much deserved shut eye:

Out on Film opens, a Soul-ful sighting, TCM scores Scorsese and a warm “Welcome”

The impressive line-up for this year's 24th annual Out on Film festival opening Thursday night at Landmark Midtown Cinema and running though Oct. 6 only underscores why the Atlanta LGBT cinema festival is one of the oldest and most attended in the country (Out on Film even earned a place on Atlanta magazine's "The Good, the Bad, and the Indie" history of film in Georgia in our September issue). As an honored Out on Film juror, we've already previewed 15 of this year's film in advance. Based on what we've seen, here's our completely unofficial "to do" list for this year's offerings:
Shelley Emerson

She

She had been an actor in her own life; she had played the role of a man for so long that she had become incredible in the part. She had played Jim as a guy’s guy with a ruddy face and short hair and Jim had been a great guy, a great success story; but Jim had only been a character.
