This weekend was full of LGBT events and gatherings. The GA Voice was on-hand at several events, including the Fenuxe Launch Party and benefit for The Kid in all of Us, ‘Monsters’ at Kai Lin Art featuring the work of “Best of Atlanta” award winner Jon Arge and a community picnic in Piedmont Park held to discuss public safety in the wake of the bias crime against Rev. Josh Noblitt, social justice minister at St. Mark United Methodist Church.
There was a massive turnout for the Fenuxe launch party at Aurum, which doubled as a benefit for local LGBT nonprofit For the Kid in All of Us Saturday night (July 17).
Jon Arge, Best Artist winner in this year’s Georgia Voice “Best of Atlanta” awards, was one of 10 illustrative artists participating in the "Monsters" art show at Kai Lin Art featuring monster-inspired works on Friday, July 16. People packed the gallery/event space and spilled onto the sidewalks as well for the monster success of an opening. The show will be up for two months.
And rounding out our coverage from the weekend was a picnic in Piedmont Park on Sunday, July 18, organized by Rabbi Joshua Lesser and Rev. Josh Noblitt, who was recently the victim of a bias-crime in Piedmont Park. The picnic was held near the same spot Noblitt and his friend were robbed at gunpoint by a group of teens. As part of the day, Noblitt's friends Carlton and Kari Mackey were photographing attendees in the same spot Noblitt was attacked for a future photo book.
