Performers from Miss Sophia to Nicole Luv Dupree mixed with reality TV show stars and a crowd that topped 1,000 for an energetic, jam-packed Stars of the Century late Monday that helped close out Atlanta’s Black Gay Pride.
The show amped up its weekly lineup for the capacity crowd at Jungle, offering more than a dozen drag queens who channeled artists including Chris Brown, Kanye West and Whitney Houston during the show that ran long enough to shut down the gay club early Tuesday.
Marlo Hampton from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and her gay bestie Miss Lawrence enjoyed the show, smiling through a tongue lashing from Miss Sophia over Hampton’s faggot-gate from last season. On the front row? Cast members from “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.”
In June, Stars of the Century celebrated with its annual turnabout show.
