Burly gay rugby players and their supporters paraded through Midtown in their Saturday finest this weekend for the Atlanta Bucks’ annual Purple Dress Run.
The start of the 12th annual part 5K/part bar crawl was shifted from Cowtippers to Frogs this year, with tickets including two drinks there and at Blake’s, Ten, Midtown Tavern and the Atlanta Eagle.
The event raises funds for the Bucks to head to Amsterdam for next month’s Bingham Cup.
