DJ Shane Stiel’s hot, hairy, hunky Heretic ‘haus’

Add this share

Something big and burly happens when DJ Shane Stiel comes to Atlanta. Like a signal only they and their admirers hear, every beefy gay guy in Atlanta and across the region descends on Heretic for brawny beats.

We witnessed the sexy phenomenon first at Stiel’s ATL debut for Bear Invasion, then we saw it happen again when he helmed the Scruff party. Saturday’s Haus of Stiel was no different. In fact, it was enhanced: drag host with a twist Grace Towers performed then emceed a leather and kink demonstration featuring three local hunks strapped up in gear.
