Photos: Afternoon teas dot the Pride landscape at Heretic

Add this share
With a blistering slate of eight Pride events, Heretic Atlanta delivered two packed daytime patio parties to supplement its signature nightlife celebrations last week.

DJ-driven dances with the legendary likes of Dan Slater, Dani Brasil, the Perry Twins and Nina Flowers kept dancing queens moving every night through the wee hours of Monday. Outside on the rainbow patio by day, DJ/producer Todd Terry served Queen Butch Pride Tea on Saturday.

The fun continued Sunday as our cameras caught a double dose of DILF. The party series hosted the Out & Proud Tea Dance with DJs James Anthony outside in the afternoon. As the sun went down, it was Proud Fukr with the Perry Twins. Nina Flowers took over and played the Monday Morning party all the way to lunchtime.

Never ones to rest on laurels, Heretic does the Backroom party with Mark DeMarko this Friday, followed by the Deviant: Homecoming dance on Saturday.
