EDITOR’S PICK

fROM fREShLY BLOOMInG flowers, to the singing of the birds and the buzzing of the bees – everyone is excited that we’re finally moving into springtime! It’s time to put away those cold drab colors of winter and embrace this season’s warmer spring tones. But just cause it’s warming up, girl, it doesn’t mean it’s time to break out the flip flops just yet! Warm and bright pinks, blues, yellows, and greens are back, which is just wonderful. Even shoes are taking a turn from the traditional brown and black to warmer reds, blues, and yellows!

Ermenegildo Zegna Still Life Leather Bag available at Ermenegildo Zegna, Lenox Square

In our quarterly fashion installment, we found this spring’s must haves for the stylish gay man. From Spring Staples to photo spreads we’ve got it all for you. Pretty soon our mild temps will break through to hot heat, and then, girl, wear your flipflops – but until then let’s enjoy spring! William Duffee-Braun

WE are greater than AIDS by David Furnish

photo credit: Richard Leslie

14 FENUXE.COM

30 years since the discovery of the first case of what was later identified as AIDS. With that news, our lives and relationships as gay men were forever altered. We witnessed an unthinkable tragedy that has taken the lives of more than a quarter million of our gay and bisexual friends and lovers.

In the face of this devastation, leaders emerged. The crisis helped to shape our community’s political agenda, and it provided a platform around which gay leaders could advocate for rights and equality. We realized that if we informed ourselves and acted on what we learned, we could be greater than the disease. Thanks to the efforts of gay men and our allies, our community saw a dramatic decline in new infections by the late 1980s. Many of us can look back with immense pride at the collective response in those early years. The availability of effective combination drug therapies in 1996 fundamentally changed how we thought about HIV. No longer was HIV the death sentence it had once been. We had new hope. For many, HIV was a manageable chronic disease. Many of us turned our


attention to marriage equality, adoption rights, the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and other pressing issues facing our community. While we broadened our focus, AIDS did not. When we become complacent, HIV thrives. New HIV infections among gay and bisexual men in the United States are on the rise. Yes, on the rise. We are the only risk group for whom this is the case. According to a recent study by the CDC, one in five of us – that is gay and bisexual men -- in some of the largest U.S. cities today are living with HIV – and half of those who are positive do not know it. Unless we act now, we will see these numbers rise even higher, and quickly. My partner, Sir Elton John, often talks of his friend Ryan White – a boy whose tremendous courage in the face of AIDS forced our leaders to take action and inspired many of us. Today, Ryan’s story continues to remind us that just as HIV began one person at a time it will end one person a time. Elton and I recently had a baby boy. Becoming fathers has given us new perspective on what it means to take care of one another – as parents, as partners and as members of a community. And, it reminds us that we cannot be complacent in helping to create the kind of society in which we want our son to grow up. In short, we must take responsibility and each do our part to create a future free of HIV – by being informed, using protection, getting tested and treated, and getting involved. And so, as we mark 30 years of this disease, Elton and I have recommitted ourselves to being greater than AIDS. As Chairman of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, I’m proud of the community organizations with which we are working to fight stigma and prevent the spread of the disease. And, I’m proud that leading LGBT companies, like HERE Media, LOGO TV, and Fenuxe, are refocusing attention on this epidemic, and I hope more will join us. As a community, we once showed that we could be greater than AIDS. Now is our time to do it again. Visit greaterthan.org/pride to get started.

David Furnish is Chairman of the Elton John AIDS Foundation (www.ejaf.org). The Elton John AIDS Foundation is a supporting partner of Greater Than AIDS (www.greaterthan.org/pride), a national movement organized in response to AIDS in America with a focus on the most affected communities.

PRIMA PRINTING INDULGENCE IS IN FASHION TIMING PLAYS

a crucial role in whether a fashion model or photographer gets booked for a job. That’s why local gay couple Chad Sims and Angel Marcelino started Prima Printing Indulgence in 2002 – to offer faster turnaround times on models’ comp cards and actors’ head shots. When models have a last minute casting pop up and need to take a comp card, Prima makes it happen.

“Angel being a model and me being a businessman, it just made the perfect combination,” says Sims. The perfect combination led Prima to expand their operation to become a leader in the printing industry. They are a full-service printer helping businesses throughout Metro Atlanta and beyond with all their marketing needs from small run flyers to brochures. Their business is to help other businesses grow, and they continue to do that through producing eye-catching banners, brochures, media kits and more. It’s a team effort all around. Sims’ crucial role on the operations side and Marcelino’s eye for beauty and color provide an extra level of skill you rarely find at other printers. Prima has also been a longtime supporter of the gay community. They have donated their services and/or sponsored events for the Atlanta Pride Committee, For the Kid in All of Us, and Joining Hearts. “We have always really believed in helping move

16 FENUXE.COM

the gay community in a positive direction,” Marcelino says. Prima is moving forward in a positive direction with the launch of www.primaflyers.com – a more cost effective, efficient alternative to other online printers for promotional materials. Customers go to the site, order their flyers, upload their files, pay, and Prima will either print same day or next day. Easy. They also offer delivery inside the perimeter or free local pickup. Prima has seen astounding growth and has expanded consistently for the last five years. Sims has a clear vision for how to build on that success. “I think that our growth has come from us giving the best possible quality with the quickest possible turnaround at the best price in town.” 1425 Dutch Valley Pl.

thE REIGn Of

ERMEnEGILDO ZEGnA A LIttLE OVER a hundred years ago, a young entrepreneur in the Italian Alps set out to create the world’s finest textiles. He used the grandest fibers taken directly from their markets of origin to create a global fashion empire. Now run by his grandson, luxury menswear company Ermenegildo Zegna has arrived at Lenox Square.

Ermenegildo Zegna offers some of the best in men’s clothing, accessories, and shoes. The Lenox location will carry a full range of the Ermenegildo Zegna and Zegna Sport collections.

measure”) service with ceremonial and formal attire. Tailors will expertly drape and sew the fabric into shape. Finish the look off with a pair of Ermenegildo Zegna’s gorgeous moccasins in smooth calf with a sleek metal ornament.

Fashion fiends will have ample room to roam in Ermenegildo Zegna’s 2,800 square-foot space right near Cartier. Celebrated architects Gianmaria and Roberto Beretta of Milan’s Studio Beretta were enlisted by Ermenegildo Zegna to design the Lenox Square location.

Or slip on a pair of Ermenegildo Zegna’s jeans along with one of their finely crafted leather belts and polos and hit the park to catch all those spring stares from the boys. The possibilities are endless.

The idea was to use raw materials to accent the suave elegance and timeless quality of the brand’s heritage. It definitely shows as natural stones and woods mingle with each other throughout the store to create a supremely masculine vibe.

“The new store at Lenox Square is an exciting addition to our growing retail network,” says Robert Aldrich, President and CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna North America. “We are proud to introduce our over 100 year heritage in quality and innovation to the Atlanta community in such an illustrious shopping location.”

But the clothes are the star. Their exquisite suits and other formal wear will ensure that all eyes will be on you at the next power lunch at Bone’s. Concerned about the fit? Not to worry, as the store offers their exclusive Su Misura (“made to

Illustrious it is. From the Italian Alps, across the Atlantic, and through four generations, Ermenegildo Zegna finally arrives in Atlanta to spread the good word about the best in menswear this spring.

fashion

Project

When your first two signature events are as successful and widely praised as The Toy Party

and Backpack in the Park, you better bring it if you’re creating a third. For the Kid in All of Us can consider it “broughten” as they present the fashion-forward event Project Prom on the top floor of the W Midtown on March 20.

The goal of Project Prom is to help create the dream prom night for underprivileged teens by providing both the dress and the funds for an exquisite dinner out. To accomplish it, they partnered with dashing designer Vincent Martinez of Grady High School’s Urban Couture program and Becca’s Closet, a national nonprofit providing prom dresses to underprivileged girls. Becca’s Closet donated about 100 previously owned dresses, which were divided between Martinez, award-winning designer and SCAD professor of design Jason Bunin, and Karen English of the teen/tween after-school design program English Design Lab. And their kids got to work refurbishing! “It’s such a challenge because these dresses are rough,” says Martinez. “They’ve got more spangles and sequins than Bob Mackie’s closet.” But Martinez is touched by the mission. “These are teenagers helping teenagers,” he says. “They are producing and creating something that can bring so much joy and fulfillment to

someone who may be lacking it in their life.” After a cocktail reception to begin the night, the runway opens. 40 looks will be modeled by Grady students as well as one special guest model – Miss Georgia 2010 Christina McCauley. 97.1 The River DJ Kaedy Kiely will emcee. It was a long time coming for a third signature event, but For the Kid president Chris Bess says it has paid off. “We’ve been talking for a couple of years about starting a third event and it never seemed like it was a great time to do it logistically, but this year we decided to bite the bullet and make it happen,” Bess says. “The fact that everything is falling into place is testament that this was the right time to make that step forward.”

Pant Roll

Personality Profile Ah, Spring is

finally on its way. With the changing of seasons comes the adoption of new items in your wardrobe. Heavy wool pants and dark denim are stored to make way for lighter colors and thinner fabrics. And with the thinner material comes the opportunity to elaborate on your pant roll. Yes, your pant roll – the unavoidable trend that every good gay man simply must participate in this spring. But more important than the roll itself is being certain yours is a representation of the character and personality you possess. Allow us to elaborate...

The Turn Up Roll

The Standard Roll

The Tight Roll

You are the half ass noncommittal type. Simply turning the jeans up half a roll allows you to take part in the trend but not become involved. You don’t like being seen as the eager beaver and it shows. Sure, you’ll go on a date with a new guy, but you’re taking separate cars.

You are organized and strategically balanced. You have all the correct pieces and you fit right in. Your philosophy in life? Black and white – no gray area. Ever mixed your peas with your mashed potatoes? Not unless you were making shepherd’s pie.

Early bird gets the worm. You don’t need coffee in the morning, you wake for change, trends, and fads. You are all-in and leading the rest of the pack. Your Petco discount card? Mailed in the forms the day you got it. Gasoline dropping below half full, filler’up!

Spring

Staples Being bombarded by the newest

trends and fads of fashion can be frustrating. Even more so when all you really want to do is look great for work or a Saturday afternoon stroll. Here are five key basics that will help ease the pain of creating your ensemble.

Lose your old floral patterns and embroidered detailing. Keeping things solid equals a versatile wardrobe.

The larger and more striking the tie, the more complicated the guy wearing it. A simple thin navy tie looks fabulous with any dress shirt.

Lose the tight sweater and give your lightweight knits room to breathe. Spanx For Men is great, but only if it is worn under your clothes.

Cut out the bootleg and flare. A simple straight leg opening with a deliberate pant roll adds timeless expression.

Wingtip shoes create a designer look without breaking the bank. Choose a color that can be used with your entire attire.

TAURUS This time of year is the best time to set real resolutions. Be ready to make more “from the heart” goals.

GEMINI When was the last time you read a book? It’s time to dust away the winter cobwebs and re-energize your mind.

LEO

SAGITTARIUS

A friend needs you right now. Remember when you’re there for them, it’s just about them. Keep your ego in check.

Remember when you buy those new spring plants that a green thumb means more than accidentally dipping your digit into the guacamole.

VIRGO Roadmaps often lead right back to home. It’s time to set off for parts unknown.

LIBRA When you pack away the winter clothes be sure to discard the ones you haven’t worn in more than two years. Turtlenecks are passe…above the belt.

CANCER

CAPRICORN Things may seem difficult to sort out right now. Even overwhelming at times. But you have the skills to take back control.

AQUARIUS You’re the Belle of the Ball right now. Everyone wants to let the good times roll with you.
