Joining Hearts pool party celebrated getting ‘Together ATLast’

Add this share
Scores of swimsuit-clad revelers partied into the night at Joining Hearts’ 34th pool party fundraiser to fight HIV.

The event took place Saturday at Greystone at Piedmont Park with satellite events all weekend. In light of last year’s COVID cancellation, the theme for 2021 was “Together ATLast,” and partygoers took it to heart — and maybe played the Joining Hearts drinking game while avoiding gay Atlanta’s worst pool party lush.

Australian DJ and Producer Dan Slater spun the crowd into a frenzy. The organization has raised some $3 million for beneficiaries since its founding in 1987.
