With queens from across Atlanta – and a mix of performers past and present – the Armorettes celebrated their 38th anniversary on Sunday collecting tips, doing camp drag and dishing out cash to non-profits.
The Armorettes opened their weekend of celebration with a show on Saturday at Heretic. On Sunday, the fun moved to Burkhart's, which hosts their weekly show. During both performances, they gave out $30,000 in donations – $10,000 each to SisterLove and the Mister Center of Positive Impact, $6,000 to Someone Cares, and $2,000 each for the Empowerment Resource Center and Poz Vets.
On Sunday, the show opened with Trashetta Galore and Wild Cherry Sucret. Other queens included Electra Bell, Calico Deville, Miami Royale, Plenty Moore, Fiera Ice, Betty Bennett, Kellie Divine, Princess Alberta, Hershii Liquor, Sharon Needles, Autumn Skyy, Brent Starr, Eden Cakes, Cherry Poppins, Ginger Bred Man and Kitty Love Antoinette.
Last summer, readers of the Georgia Voice named the Armorettes Best Drag Show. That big gay outdoor Easter show certainly helps.
