After plenty of buildup and a sexy manly-men tease with video and photos, Friday was finally time for ManShaft and the return of the hot, sticky party series’ Lumberjack themed event.
Not since last year have we seen so much flannel, suspenders, trucker caps and longjohns. As promised, the early crowd at Cockpit warmed up during the Big Wood Cocktail Hour with DJ Chris Griswold. And right on schedule, they stayed late for log jams helmed by ManShaft’s founder and mixmaster DJ Diablo Rojo. Yes, that’s Atlanta based porn star Charlie Harding (photo, right) and his partner Scotty Rage (left) bookending a lucky woodsman during Friday’s party.
New to gay Atlanta’s ManShaft? Well, they also do blue collar and leather-levi if you want even more of a gander. Keep an eye out for a military night coming this spring, too.
