DJ Shane Stiel makes Heretic his hunky ‘haus’

Add this share

DJ Shane Stiel delivered his hot, hairy, hunky beats to Heretic on Saturday, heating up an appreciative crowd by giving them what they expect from Haus of Stiel.

Stiel is no stranger to gay Atlanta. He helped debut Bear Invasion here, returned to helm the Scruff party, brought his Haus of Stiel in August 2013 and beat Heretic into a St. Patty's Day frenzy in March.

The event also served as an informal, late-night after party for Out on Film. The crowd included Frankie Valenti (aka porn star Johnny Hazzard), Mark Strano and crew from “Tiger Orange”; Christopher Hines, Jake Nodar and Roman Troy from “Bad Ass Gays”; and Sister Roma from “Folsom Forever.”

“Tiger Orange” and “Folsom Forever” screened at Out on Film on Saturday; “Bad Ass Gays” premiered on Sunday. Roma is the activist that helped save drag queens and queer performers from Facebook's real-name policy.

But the love was all for Stiel. He felt it, too.
