Future drag stars work it out at Friends on Ponce

Drag newbies got a chance to strut their stuff at New Faces night at Friends on Ponce.

The popular neighborhood bar hosted several of the new queens on Sunday and made time to toast a birthday.

Friends on Ponce has hosted various events over the years, including a Toys for Tots benefit, a big queer fundraiser, Super Bowl watch party and Fourth of July cookout complete with go-go boys!
