Savannah queer activists are proud to announce our city’s first-ever Queer Power March, to be held on September 10th.
The march assembly will begin at 6 pm in Johnson Square and move down the streets of Broughton, Montgomery, and Congress ending at Ellis Square with famous speakers. The march is being organized to give a voice to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI) youth, and to empower citizens of our community to be fierce activists for equality in order to make Savannah a more progressive city. Through this march, participants will be encouraged to think globally and act locally.
After the march, participants will be celebrating the movement at the Mirage Hookah Bar with the Queer Jamz After Party featuring queer artists. The march is being sponsored in part by Georgia Equality, First City Network, Savannah Pride, Queers and Allies, and Armstrong Gay-Straight Alliance.
More Info: For more information, or to schedule an interview, please call event organizer and media liaison Jesse Morgan at 912.690.2714, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Though host Lady Chablis may not sing “There She Is, Miss America” at the Miss Savannah Pride Pageant at Club One on July 29, the winner is sure to be the “queen of femininity” that the song describes. In its eleventh year, this beauty pageant with a twist celebrates style and talent—and it’s a fundraiser for Savannah Pride, a local LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi, and transgendered) organization that hosts the annual Pride Festival in Savannah.
The show starts at 10 PM; there will an $11 cover charge. Hosted by Savannah celebrity Lady Chablis and Kristina Foxx (who impersonates another Savannah favorite, Paula Deen), the pageant will feature talent from Savannah’s LGBT community as contestants don their best drag.
