Joining Hearts beach party kicks off summer

Heretic has become a gay Memorial Sunday tradition. This year, the bar’s beach theme brought sexy guys outdoors for day drinking, swimsuits, beach balls, shirtless speedo'd shot boys and carnival games.

Joining Hearts, which is building up to bring you gay Atlanta’s biggest summer pool party for charity, was the beneficiary. Games throughout the day were hosted by Angelica D’Paige, and tunes were double-teamed by DJs Mike Pope and Stan Jackson.

As the sun moved across the sky and toward the horizon, gay softball jocks flowed in for the Big Peach Closing Party & Awards (view photos) from Hotlanta Softball to celebrate the winners of two days of competition on the field (view photos) and rowdy stripteases off the field (view photos).
