Joining Hearts kicked off its 25th year on Sunday in the way you’d expect from the organizers of gay Atlanta’s biggest charity pool party: With hundreds of supporters, lots of cocktails and thumping beats.

The posh Love on the Rocks unfolded on Sunday at Bed Down in Midtown, the fifth rendition of the Valentine’s event that also serves as the start of the event season for Joining Hearts. It culminates in July with the hunk filled, sold-out pool party in Piedmont Park that helps the group reach its six-figure tally for funds they donate to HIV agencies.
