The evening, which featured a converted dance floor filled with chairs and a small stage, reminded gay nightlife observers of a certain age of the intimate shows the Armorettes staged at the now-closed Armory. In other words, Atlanta’s old school drag.
The Aug. 21 show featured several cast members of the Armorettes, along with a few special guests, to benefit HIV charity Someone Cares. The group works to provide HIV education and prevention to transgender people.
It’s been a busy few months for the drag troupe. Longtime member Wild Cherry Sucret retired in grand fashion, they put on their big bonnets to please a big crowd for the Easter Drag Races, veteran cast member Dixie D. Cupp died and they welcomed two new members.
