The Heretic draped itself in white, brought out a powerhouse DJ and partied late into the night to celebrate New Year's Eve on Saturday.
But don't be fooled by the winter wonderland. The Genesis White Party delivered pure Heretic with all of its scruffy, sexy self. In fact, Scruff sponsored the event, which also included DJ Roland Belmares and drag performer Angelica D'Paige counting down the last few seconds of 2016.
It was the fifth year for the Genesis White Party. DJ Phil B helped launch the event in 2012 and returned in 2015. DJ Kidd Madonny headlined in 2014 with DJ Eddie Baez in 2013.
Last month, Heretic celebrated its 25th anniversary of bringing the beats to gay Atlanta nightlife.
