Atlanta Talent Shines at ICON Parties

Newsflash: Atlanta is overflowing with raw magic and talent.

With the Facebook event invites pouring in every week, it can be hard to decide where to spend a Saturday night in GayTL. Drag shows, concerts, art openings, late-night gloryhole meetups, what's a modern girl to do? WUSSY's latest nightlife recommendation is for a new type of experience called ICON.  

ICON is a monthly, immersive performance art experience celebrating legendary recording artists, all presented by For All Humansβ€”a creative agency started by Atlanta promoter, Barry Brandon.

From Beyonce to Lady Gaga, local performers take their own spin on classic bops that we all love and adore. But these parties aren't resting on a typical dance party/drag show format. ICON shines because of the assembled team of gag-worthy performers who are there to celebrate these icons.
