Joining Hearts leads boys to ‘Twisted’ Jungle

Add this share

What’s a shirtless dancing queen to do after gay Atlanta’s biggest charity pool party? Dance and party some more, of course. Do not pass Go, head directly to the Joining Hearts Afterparty.

Local favorite DJ Twisted Dee – nee Dee Martello – was ready, willing and able to keep the party going after an epic main event in Piedmont Park. The partiers didn’t even have time for their “Joining” heartbeats to slow on Saturday night before Martello and the Jungle crew got pulses racing again.

The rowdy crowd packed the dance floor until the wee hours, enjoyed a performance by Phoenix, and even left some room for After Hours aperitif at Xion.
