The burly men of Atlanta Bucks Rugby tapped their inner queens – drag queens, that is – for their annual camp drag pageant fundraiser Miss Ruck N Maul on Saturday.
Six queens competed for the title and raised funds for the AIDS Vaccine 200, the Bucks and their upcoming trip to the Bingham Cup this June in Amsterdam. By the time the crown was awarded to Sakura Steakhouse (top photo), the contestants and the event raised more than $8,000.
Other contestants included Miss Behave, Jenna Tellya, Diamond Dijour, Miss Chief and Dee'Juana Falk.
Entertainer Ruby Redd hosted the event, which was held for the first time at Out Front Theatre.
In February, the Bucks auctioned their "Meat" to raise funds at Woofs.
