Photos: Crowd packs Heretic for 30th Anniversary

Every gay guy in the Heretic sphere seemed to turn out for the bar’s 30th anniversary party on Saturday. Our photographers were there.

“Our patrons are the reason we do what we do, the reason I get out of bed every day,” Heretic General Manager Alan Collins told Project Q before the event. “ I am humbled every day knowing, after 30 years, people still consider Heretic one of their top nightlife destinations.”

The evidence is in our gallery below, as the wall-to-wall crowd enjoyed DJs Mike Pope and Joe Gauthreaux, as well as a live set by dance diva Kristine W.

The pace never stops at Heretic. This week, look for the G8YTIES party on Friday and the Deviant: Holiday Edition on Saturday.
