Amsterdam sows seeds for volleyball [photos]

The 20th Hotlanta Classic volleyball tournament was more than just two days of serves and spikes. After a long Saturday of sweat and net, a seeding party for the 25 visiting gay teams took over Amsterdam Atlanta.

Besides the gay video bar’s weekly Saturday patrons and drink specials, the tourney teams were also treated to a fundraising show featuring Armorettes Knomie Moore, Trashetta Galore and Al’Meria RichMan, plus Atlanta Sister Gunza Blazin’. The collision of partiers, drag and jocks benefited For the Kid in All of Us, the gay-led group that brings us Toy Party and Backpack in the Park each year.

Hotlanta Volleyball Association’s annual tournament continued through Sunday. In addition to the party pics below, you can also view our photos of on-the-court action at Georgia Tech.
