Onyx takes over Atlanta Eagle for leather masquerade

Add this share

Black gay leather men and women converged on Atlanta Eagle on Friday for a good old-fashioned masquerade.

It was Onyx night at the Ponce De Leon Avenue bar, and it attracted a large number of men from Onyx Southeast and women from Onyx Pearls Southeast.

DJ Ron Pullman kept the music pumping throughout the night.

Onyx Southeast has been welcoming black gay leather men into its fold for two decades now, while Onyx Pearls Southeast has been at it since 2006.
