Atlanta’s LGBTQIA+ community brought the house down on Tuesday night as they flocked in full force to revel in the anticipation of the upcoming release of MEAN GIRLS. The event, a dazzling showcase of diversity and glamour, saw a star-studded audience comprising elite influencers, A-list celebrities, trendsetters, and the ever-capturing presence of the press. Notable personalities in attendance included the fabulous Kandi Burruss, the charming Trina Braxton, the incredible Angelica Ross, the stylish Derek Jae, the sensational LaTavia Roberson, the stunning Stasha Sanchez, the charismatic Austin Rogers, the rising star Kid Kenn, the enchanting Simone Tisci, the dashing Vincent Watson, the radiant Tammy Rivera, the lovely Monyetta Shaw, the charismatic Antonio Newell, and many more.
The electrifying Trinity K. Bonet, renowned for her stint on “Ru Paul’s Drag Race,” took center stage with a jaw-dropping drag performance, treating the audience to a show-stopping Beyonce medley that set the crowd ablaze with excitement. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” sensation and self-proclaimed “Regina George of Atlanta,” Kenya Moore, played the perfect host, revving up the energy of the night as she rallied the crowd to prepare for the film screening and, of course, to flood their social media accounts with the glitz and glam of the evening.
MEAN GIRLS, set to hit theaters nationwide on January 12th, promises to be an absolute riot, blending Tina Fey’s comedic brilliance with a fresh take on the modern classic. The storyline revolves around the arrival of new student Cady Heron, played by the talented Angourie Rice, who ascends to the top of the social hierarchy occupied by the infamous “Plastics.” Headed by the conniving Regina George, portrayed by the fabulous Reneé Rapp, and her loyal sidekicks Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika), the Plastics dominate the high school scene.
However, when Cady finds herself entangled in a complicated love triangle with Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she inadvertently becomes Regina’s target. With the support of her misfit friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), Cady embarks on a mission to dismantle the Plastics’ reign and discovers the importance of staying true to oneself in the cutthroat jungle that is high school.
As Atlanta’s LGBTQIA+ community lights up the night, the anticipation for MEAN GIRLS reaches a fever pitch. Get ready for a rollercoaster of laughter, drama, and a whole lot of fabulousness when this modern classic hits the big screen on January 12th! #MeanGirlsMagic
