The packed slate of nightlife for Joining Hearts Weekend opened with a big-name DJ and a shirtless crowd of gay dancing boys. It closed the same way on Sunday with a tea dance.

DJ Alyson Calagna rocked the event, hosted by GA Boys at Opera. That’s the same promoter who brought sexy Mickey Friedmann to the DJ booth in June. And no bouncers were offended in the making of Sunday’s dance party.

The event capped a busy weekend. Besides the main event on Saturday, Joining Hearts 25 with Roland Belamres, there was TakeOver at the W, Joe Gauthreaux at Heretic and Tony Moran at Jungle. In effect, it was Pride for dancing queens.
