It wouldn't be summer without Joining Hearts. And it's the #instagay selfies from gay Atlanta that help make the pool party with an expanded purpose so sexy, satisfying and special.

When they weren't cocktailing, dancing or just milling about the pool in Piedmont Park, the partiers were chronicling the event on Saturday with Instagram and hashtags. It's an annual tradition. Seriously.

So we searched long and hard to bring this assortment of our favorite #joininghearts #instagay moments from #jh29 in the #gaytl.


Sometimes, it's attitude over abs.
