Maskqueerade does Heretic Halloween takeover

Add this share

Halloween in gay Atlanta is already a big deal. When it falls on a weekend, the holiday the gays bring their costume A-games. That explains the frenzy on Friday during Heretic’s Macho Maskqueerade.

A big crowd of partiers brought out the sexy in their versions of clowns, firemen, superheroes, sailors and more meant taking off their shirts. While they got to know each other, DJs Chiruco and Mike Pope laid down beats, and Bubba D. Licious doled out $2,014 in costume contest cash and prizes.
