After setting summer on fire at the annual Joining Hearts pool party, Roland Belmares made his triumphant return to gay Atlanta with a one-night-only set for the dancing queens at Heretic.
The internationally known DJ and producer brought it down a notch from Joining Hearts’ shirtless hunk-fest of thousands in July to play Heretic’s more intimate vibe on Saturday. But his fans were just as appreciative.
As Belmares churned out the beats to wow the crowd, several of the Atlanta Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence mixed, mingled and made their own particular brand of merriment to raise awareness for their slate of do-good causes.
