The queens who quit Burkhart's over racist social media posts came together on Friday for the first Queens United benefit show.
The event – hosted by the new organization and presented by the new LGBT group Gay Georgia – raised funds for the entertainers with scores of performers at Park Tavern.
Queens United, which formed in the wake of the Burkhart's scandal, is also hosting a night of benefit shows on March 18 at Out Front Theatre. The group also launched the Queens United Relief Fund, which has raised $1,560 out of its $15,000 goal.
Performers included Kat Graham, Jason Dottley, Phoenix, Alissah Brooks, Nicole Paige Brooks, Celeste Holmes, Evah Destruction, Destiny Brooks and scores of others.
