The August First Saturday Social was a hot affair held in a cool space. Hosted uptown by Travis Sawyer at the international headquarters of Creative Approach, more than 100 of the “whos who” of the GLBT community feasted on good food, sipped (sometimes gulped) cheap wine, and talked about the incessant rain, oppressive heat, and folks who weren’t there.
(I would list names like Wil, Rick, David and John, Kevin Clark, but I won’t.) Attendees drove all the way from St. Simons but yet again we did not see our dear friends from up in the country; wonder what’s happened to those girlz? There was lots of talk about voting, both for Chef Ted and the upcoming FCN board elections. FCN has been a vital part of the GLBT scene in Georgia for almost 30 years; the organizations needs a strong board and a stronger voice.
The very first FCN organizational meeting way back in the mid 1980s was held in September.
So, next months social will be a doozy; hosted by community leader and all-around good guy, Don Callahan. See you there!
