Heretic blasted off into summer on Sunday with some hunks in swimsuits, drag queens in a sudsy pit, a foam party, gay jocks and lots of music. Summer kickoff indeed.

The day heated up with a Foam Party to benefit Joining Hearts, providing some sun and soapy fun for the gays who didn’t venture to Pensacola for the Memorial Day holiday. There wasn’t 20 tons of sand like last year’s outdoor benefit, but DJ Mike Pope, Allissah Brooks (top photo right) and Angelica D’Paige (top photo left) made it work.

Later that night, the festivities were joined by the closing party for Hotlanta Softball’s Big Peach tournament — which opened by baring its briefs — and DJ David Knapp, who spun into the wee hours of Memorial Day.
