Fox Theater Atlanta - After Party
Yesterday I wrote about my weekend in Atlanta attending a play at the Fabulous Fox Theater. Not wanting the evening to end a larger group went to a close by hotel lounge. There to our surprise was a bride and groom, with their wedding party, continuing the evening also.
We fell right into the party, with many questions and we were with a group equally as dressed-up. What ensued was right out of a transgender fiction story. (Of course, you have never read any of those). The wedding party included a US Marine in full dress uniform who had just graduated basic training. My best guess, possibly the brother of the bride. What a beautiful uniform he had including the regulation military buzz cut. It was not long before he announced to all, “I can do this” and disappeared with his girlfriend. A few minutes later, he reappeared wearing his girlfriend’s dress and heels; a beautiful look other than the short hair. The party continued. Yes, there is a photo, but that one I would not post without permission.
It was late into night before we completed our evening. We made friends that evening and had so much fun.
Note to younger self: Make memories. Make friends. Be yourself. Do things. Why wait!
