Dueling gay DJs, a cash bar, a good cause, great weather and packed indoor-outdoor spaces at the Georgian Terrace made Atlanta’s annual Change of Seasons tea dance on Sunday a huge success.

Change of Seasons was part of the 25th year of fundraising for Joining Hearts, the non-profit behind hundreds of thousands in donations to Jerusalem House and AID Atlanta. The event filled the grand ballroom and outdoor terraces of the hotel with plenty of revelry and good vibrations provided by DJs Mike Pope and Vicki Powell.

Next up for Joining Hearts is its signature event (view 2011 photos), gay Atlanta’s biggest summer pool party. Joining Hearts 25 is set for July 21 in and around the pool at Piedmont Park.
