Crowd ‘Flocks’ to Atlanta Eagle for Pride party

Add this share

A jam-packed Atlanta Eagle mixed its resident DJ, a music master popular with dancing queens and a porn star to celebrate Pride like it's never done before. 

The Flock of Eagles Pride Party on Saturday drew a decidedly massive and diverse crowd. Lines stretched out the door, a two-story deck was standing room only and a cordoned off parking lot was doing a brisk business. The bar's usual offering of leather daddies and bears was reinforced with dancing queens and alternaqueers on hand to listen as DJ Vicki Powell worked the booth and fans of porn star Boomer Banks. He took a break from turning Atlanta's own Violet Chachki into his Folsom poodle to help host the party.

The crowd was also treated to music from a flock of Eagle DJs who rotated through the booth, including the Atlanta bar's resident Pat Scott, Mark Louque from ShEagle Black Rock City, Scooter Michael McCreight from Black Eagle Toronto, NARK from Eagle Seattle and Chris Bowen from Eagle LA. 

Pride Weekend proved busy for the Atlanta Eagle. Former NFL jock Esera Tuaolo performed on Friday and DJ Ron Pullman delivered for a post parade crowd on Sunday.
