Atlanta football jocks expose their inner drag

Add this share

When the gay jocks of Atlanta's flag football league crown their champs, there is a tiara involved. And a pageant. It makes for a raucous closing party like no other.

Sure, the National Flag Football League of Atlanta crowned its on-the-field champs after a trio of playoff games earlier this month. But on Saturday, the heels, dresses and drag came out for its Ladies of the League at Jungle to crown an on-the-stage winner.

With an energetic performance, and two backup dancers, Chyna Paige Brooks (top photo) took down four other competitors – Alexa Alabaster, Miss Turnit Out, Shelby Drinkyerjuice and Amanda Wreckenwith – to snatch the crown from last year's winner Ohm. Former Armorettes Sofonda Cox and Wild Cherry Sucret presided.
