“Joining Hearts has always been one of the highlights of the gay community each summer,” Kerry Loftis, director of events for Joining Hearts, an all-volunteer, non-profit charity, said before the event. “We get people who come here from all over the country for this event. They plan their vacations around it. People consider it like a big family reunion.”
DJ Roland Belmares, an Atlanta favorite from Austin, Texas, returned to spin for this year’s event, dubbed “Splash.” Joining Hearts resident DJ Mike Pope also provided beats.
