Sharon Needles delighted a sold-out crowd at Jungle on Wednesday with her balls-out performance that wasn’t for the faint of heart. Her fans? They backed her all of the way.
Needles headlined the second installment of Fantasy Girls, a monthly parade of Atlanta drag talent organized by Phoenix and emceed by Nicole Paige Brooks. The “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winner didn’t hesitate to dismiss her critics and throw red meat to her supporters. Ripped up Bible, anyone?
Needles arrived on stage in a coffin, worked her Art Is Dead placard as well as the dozen protesters outside, and made a cocktail of out Vodka and her $1 tips. And that just got her warmed up. Watch other highlights from her performance in the video above.
Her opening number ended with a lengthy monologue and a surprise $1,000 donation to Lost N Found Youth, a non-profit that assists homeless LGBT teens. She returned to the stage to host a costume contest of Needles lookalikes.
