When you’re listed among the best gay bars in the world, you’ve got to keep the crowds coming back. Mary’s knows that, so there’s the bar’s annual Boys of Summer Swimsuit Contest.

The East Atlanta nightspot draws an eclectic crowd, and Friday was no exception. The crowds packed into the shotgun bar for the sixth rendition of the contest, complete with drag queens, guest judges and a handful of guys willing to bare almost all to take the title and earn bragging rights.

This swimsuit competition came with the heaping of attitude we’d expect from a bar that also hosts evenings called Hot Mess!, Fag Bash! and OFFyerHead.
