Atlanta stages #JoiningHearts Instagram takeover

Add this share

For hundreds of gay men in Atlanta, one Saturday in July stands out as the time to make summer memories. And it wouldn’t be gay, or Atlanta, or the Joining Hearts pool party without #instagay selfies.

Individual partiers chronicling Saturday’s events via Instagram has become as much a part of the annual tradition as the pool and the abs. Using the hashtags #joininghearts, #jh28 and more, dozens of guys were all over the task. Just like last year.

Our feeds lit up all day Saturday. From pre-party smiles to mid-dance mayhem, through to the fireworks finale, here are some of our favorite shots.
