They made a promise to blow gay Atlanta out of the water last weekend, and the men of Atlanta Bear Pride kept to their word. We have the photos to prove it.

10 ABP parties at multiple venues started on Friday and lasted well into Monday morning. Our gallery below shows what happens after line of bear-y eager revelers meander into the Heretic parking lot.

The wait was worth it for Saturday night’s keystone event, the Bearracuda party featuring DJ Tony Moran. Other Bear Pride winners included day, night and very early morning parties, not only at Heretic but also Woofs, Future/Xion and Fuego’s Crazy Atlanta.

Next up at Heretic is the furry-puppy-kink party LOBO (Lights Out, Barks Out) on Saturday, Sept. 18. That event features DJ Jake Maxwell.
