There’s just something about Atlanta Pride Weekend that draws out the bodies and presses them together more than any other event. Take Saturday at Jungle, where people and Pride packed the place.
New Orleans-cum-New York spin master DJ Joe Gauthreaux took the helm in the booth, and house diva Phoenix took control of the stage. Together with several hundred of their closest, sexiest friends, they made just one night to remember over a whole weekend of fun at the venue.
Lasting memories were made, and it’s a good thing too. The club announced this would be its last Pride before shuttering operations next month.
