BE Event: The Gentlemen’s Ball on 11.11.11


Atlanta is infamous for it’s ever growing LBGT scene, and excepting the normal Pride Festivals, there isn’t lots of events planned to help celebrate their continued pride. On 11.11.11 all of that changes with the 1st Annual Gentlemen’s Ball presented by G.SPOT Productions.

BE Magazine took some time to get with the G.SPOT Productions to get the inside scoop on why the Gentlemen’s Ball is so important to the Atlanta gay community & how amazing they plan on the event BEing.

Explain the mission BEhind your upcoming event the Gentlemen’s Ball

We at G.SPOT Productions have noticed that the Gentlemen in our community rarely celebrate themselves, at least not in the social/nightlife scene.  This void prompted us to design an event unlike any other to do just that; one that would celebrate the true essence of a Gentleman all while supporting a great cause (Corporate Code).  It was a no brainer that this event should be an opportunity to help those displaced Gentlemen get back on their feet and into the workforce.  That alone was incentive to make The Gentlemen’s Ball happen.

Why did you feel the need to create an event such as the Gentlemens Ball?

Atlanta is a great place to party.  Any day of the week you can find a hot club, bar or party to go to, let loose and get your life.  However, sometimes we want to do something different.  That is where nightlife in Atlanta is suffering.  There is no place to go where you can get dressed up (black tie), enjoy a seated three course meal, listen to get live celebrity performances and enjoy the company of your date.  We wanted to create an event that gives us Gentlemen a ‘second’ chance at prom and The Gentlemen’s Ball 2011 is it!
Currently, you have the Gentlemen’s Ball planned for an Atlanta premiere; do you plan on taking the event on the road?

Yes.  We plan to take The Gentlemen’s Ball to all the major cities like Chicago, DC, and NY.  It would just be selfish to not give everyone the opportunity to experience such an exquisite event (smile).
How can people BE a part of The Gentlemen’s Ball? Are there sponsor, volunteer, work, entertainment opportunities?
Aside from attending, we are looking for a variety of sponsors to contribute their product, services, money and time.  We are also looking for top notch entertainment to wow our attendees.
