When it comes to gay costume parties in Atlanta, the standard bearer comes first. Jerusalem House brought its annual party to the W Midtown on Saturday and set the bar high for a full week of Halloween.
With this year’s “Hocus Pocus” theme as a loose guide, the partiers brought their best to the event’s famous costume contest. From shirtless jesters to movie mavens to sexy bandits and beyond, the crowd enjoyed multiple bars, beats by DJ Sean Mac, as well as guest judges including WSB-TV’s Jovita Moore and HGTV’s John Gidding.
