Fall Fiesta toasts to Atlanta’s gay autumn jocks

Gay fall softball’s hardest partiers, bottomless beer, great weather on one of the gAy-TL’s favorite patios, and a gay Atlanta City Council candidate combined for a little beer bust magic on Sunday at Frogs Fall Fiesta.

The Titans of Hotlanta Softball party infamy each summer have trained their beer goggles on the fall Southern Softpaw League season. Besides their play on the diamond, these guys do it as much for putting the fun in fundraising. This time, it was for Titans’ own Matt Rinker (top photo, second from right), who’s chasing Atlanta’s District 5 seat with cocktails in his fundraising arsenal

To help Rinker get to a pretty damn gay election day, there were Jello Shots, live music by DJ Shane Smith, raffle prizes and more.
