DJ Manny Lehman worked the booth, sexy guys peddled Jell-O shots and gay Atlanta danced shirtless to ring in the New Year at Jungle like rockstars.

The club hosted Party Like A Rock Star 8.0 for the second consecutive year, packing the boys in for a night of fundraising for Joining Hearts. The party with a purpose is the creation of partners Justin Longenbach and Brennen Farlow (top photo) and a group of friends who several years ago wanted New Year's Eve to pack a new punch. They've delivered year after year after year.

The party was the climax of a New Year's Eve celebration at Jungle that opened with a special edition of Ruby's Redd Light District. It came complete with a four-course meal and plenty of drag thanks to a lineup that included Celeste Holmes, Evah Destruction, Extasy Grey, River Song-Redd, Vivian Valium, Marcella Grrleen Redd, Trashetta Galore, Myah Ross Monroe and Andre Reese Monroe. Singer Dylan Michael also performed.
