It was an amazing year for DJ Roland Belmares’ ongoing love affair with gay Atlanta. After rocking Joining Hearts last summer and packing a Labor Day dance floor too, he couldn’t leave 2012 without hitting town one more time at Jungle on Saturday to rock the boys right out of their shirts.

Belmares beat down Heretic in a triumphant September return and kicked up an epic Joining Hearts hunk fest of thousands in July. On Saturday, Jungle provided another huge crowd of half naked dancing queens to welcome him back for an encore and grand finale.
