3rd Annual GLBT Holiday Tree Lighting

It's a full evening of fun, food, and friends when Outwrite plays host to the Third Annual GLBT Holiday Tree Lighting, a benefit for Atlanta Pride Committee, on Thursday, Nov. 29 starting at 7:30 p.m. hosted by the outrageous local personality Ruby Redd. This event is free and open to the public.

This year live music is an added feature with appearances by DeJe Johnson, a performer from Blake's Southern Comfort series, and OurSong, the Atlanta Gay and Lesbian Chorus. Live theatre is also represented with appearances by Scrooge from Alliance Theatre's production of A Christmas Carol as well as by the elfin star of Horizon Theatre's production of The Santaland Diaries.

A special guest appearance by Carey Sherrell, a contestant on Donald Trump's television series The Apprentice, is also scheduled.

While kids of all ages are invited, only those 21 years of age or older will be able to purchase a wristband ($5) entitling bearers to free food and drink. Raffles for fabulous prizes donated by area businesses are also planned. Smirnoff Twist is providing cocktails with Vitamin Energy providing non-alcoholic beverages. Blake's on the Park is supplying food.

Revelers may also place their festive ornaments on the Holiday Tree.

This gala event is sponsored by Outwrite, Smirnoff Twist, Vitamin Energy, Blake's on the Park, David, Southern Voice, and Atlanta Pride Committee.

Dustin--Hi there!!
Oh, I SO want to be in three places at once, that evening--

I'll be at PBS Channel 30 that evening for orientation at 7:00 P.M., and then I'll be on-screen, working the phones with other SAG/AFTRA performers, from 8:00-10:00 P.M. that night...
I'll miss the LGBTQ Tree-Lighting at "Outwrite".
I'll also miss Collin Kelley's screening of "Paris Is Burning".

Maybe I can scoot over to "Outwrite" after the PBS Show.
I surely hope so!

You'll be there in spirit either way! As a APC member, I do my best to attend all our fundraising events.

If you have the time, feel free to tell everyone about the lighting of the tree-- fundraising events help keep the Atlanta Pride Festival free of cost!
