The party with a purpose do-gooders at Joining Hearts danced their Sunday away, continuing the drum beat to gay Atlanta's biggest pool party.

Change of Seasons at the Georgian Terrace included a tag-team pair of DJs – Kevin Durard and Neon the GlowGoBear.

The annual event continues the parade to the sexy ab fest that takes over the Piedmont Park pool on July 16. The non-profit raises funds through a full calendar of events, which kicked off in February with Love on the Rocks. Joining Hearts has also been known to party through Thanksgiving, “Pop” some art and crown a drag queen or two during their busy social season.

Since its inception, Joining Hearts has donated more than $2.14 million to provide care and housing assistance to people living with HIV.
