Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching, and like many of us, you're probably shaking in your little boots fearing that you'll spend yet another Valentine's Day alone at home siphoning a bottle of Two Buck Chuck and crying to some sappy Celine Dion lyrics.
Well fear not, as misery loves company, and Athens PRIDE is hosting a Queer Singles Mixer and Dance Party at The World Famous! Meet local (perhaps emotionally available if you're lucky) singles and dance to your cold, fickle heart's desire with a drink in one hand and a Chicken 'n Waffle Club in the other.
George the Infinite will be DJing from 9pm-12am, and we will have a special giveaway that will put the winners in the spotlight for Athens PRIDE's upcoming Queer Prom on March 23rd! Stay tuned for details!
Much to our delight.... Latrice Royal from RuPaul's Drag Race will be coming to Athens! She will perform in this year's Divas Under the Lights Show!! Sunday, September 9th, 2018 from 7:00PM to 9:30PM. Washington Street between Hull and Pulaski Streets, downtown Athens, GA.

This is the Pride event of the year and one that you - definitely - don't want to miss!
