The gays boys packed their junk into swimsuits and werqed their best booty-shaking dance moves during the bawdy summer tradition that is the Mary’s swimsuit contest.

Nine contestants braved snarky comments from judges and even a ball-popping wardrobe malfunction on Friday for Boys of Summer: Beach Party & Swimsuit Contest. Each guy stripped down to his suit, jumped on a box and danced before a packed crowd at the East Atlanta bar for the chance at a cash prize and bragging rights.

And the end of the swimsuit party means only one thing: Time to bash some fags on June 22.

Come out and celebrate your right to be a big ol’ flaming homosexual. Let’s dress up to mess up and pay honor to all those drag queens and bull dykes and fairies who weren’t afraid to stand up for themselves! Get ready to turn it up, down, in, out and all around, baby! We’ll have a keg on hand for drinking games and crazy times. See you there, CAH-WEENS!
