The hunks of Hotlanta Softball stripped down to show off their assets on stage during the gay softball league’s annual parade of gay Atlanta beefcake also known as the Mr. HSL contest.
A big, beefy Nathane Davis of the Mighty Ducks took the crown from Tony Alvarez, who won no thanks to his leather wardrobe in the 2011 contest. In 2010, Brandon Massillon took top honors. The competition unfolded Saturday at Jungle.
The pageant came just a few weeks after Hotlanta Softball crowned Alvin Laws as Ms. HSL 2012. And let’s not forget the bawdy registration party in May for the Big Peach where gay jocks bared their briefs. Davis was a crowd favorite during the Big Peach registration party in 2011.
