Hi! Welcome to the very first What’s a Lesbian to Do With Herself, in which we inform you what you should be doing if, G-d forbid, you leave this website and head out into the world. We get a lot of people asking us to talk about their events so HERE WE ARE, putting them all into one little post! This isn’t nightlife listings (check GO! Magazine for that) , just a compilation of things you’ve told us about or asked us to talk about on Autostraddle.
Are you hosting an Autostraddle Meet-Up you’d like added to this? Email grace [at] Autostraddle [dot] com with the details of your very special specialness. Also welcome are information about pride parties, poetry readings, craft fairs and Harry Potter movie premieres. To Grace!
**For the most thorough nightlife and lesbian events listings, check GO! Magazine, which features nightlife listings all around the country. **
May 26th – May 30th
Pensacola Beach, Florida
This exciting events combines two of our favorite things: half-naked girls and Julie Goldman. Friday “morning” The Real L Word cast (Romi & Sara), Julie Goldman, Brandy Howard and Top Chef Sandy Birdsong will be hosting the first round of the Dodgeball Charity Tournament and that very night Brandy will be hosting a comedy show featuring YOU GUESSED IT, Julie Goldman!
Other sexual activities include a party cleverly named “Sexacola” which inludes “infamous, fire-blowing Fuel Girls,” a Bikini Contest, a Wet T-Shirt Contest, a Drag King Competition and a White Party!
You can buy tickets for individual events or weekend passes online or at My Sister’s Room in Atlanta, Georgia or the PWW Welcome Center in Pensacola Beach.
