Atlanta's LGBTQ community and allies showed up in full force at AMC Madison Yards on Tuesday (Jan. 9) to celebrate the upcoming release of MEAN GIRLS. The audience included a full house of influencers, celebrities, and tastemakers.
Notable attendees included Kandi Burruss, Trina Braxton, Angelica Ross, Derek Jae, LaTavia Roberson, Stasha Sanchez, Austin Rogers, Kid Kenn, Simone Tisci, Vincent Watson, Tammy Rivera, Monyetta Shaw, Antonio Newell and more.
Trinity K. Bonet (“Ru Paul’s Drag Race”) gave a fabulous drag performance of a Beyoncé medley to hype the crowd. Kenya Moore, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star and the self-proclaimed "Regina George of Atlanta", hosted the evening by getting the crowd pumped up to watch the film and post on social media accounts.
From the comedic mind of Tina Fey comes a new twist on the modern classic, MEAN GIRLS. New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics,” ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika).
However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.
MEAN GIRLS is in theaters nationwide on January 12th.
