Atlanta hit the patio for Heretic’s weekend T-dance

Add this share
Heretic brought another annual gay tradition back from pandemic purgatory on Sunday.The Memorial Weekend T-Dance & BBQ started early and flowed into other popular events for a full day of parties.

DJ Mike Pope kept the beat while drag maven Ruby Redd worked the crowd in the afternoon. As the sun sank, those shenanigans gave way to a Big Peach softball wrap party. (See Big Peach photos here).

It wouldn’t be Memorial Sunday at Heretic without DJ Kid Madonny. With most patrons off work on Monday for Memorial Day, the international spin doctor kept the party going inside on the dance floor all the way to 3 a.m.
