Jungle dances shirtless into Pride weekend

Add this share

It’s just not Atlanta Pride for some gays until they’ve dumped their shirts and taken to a thumping dance floor. Cut to the scene on Friday at Jungle, where scores of dancing queens did just that.

After a decidedly more dressed but no less sexy affair at the Georgia Aquarium, it was time to strip down to the bare essentials and kick it with renowned DJ Chris Cox. He pumped the party into the wee hours in the newly transformed club, which underwent renovations just in time to treat the Pride crowds to faster entry and more dance space.
