Atlanta turns out for Kylie ‘Sonique’ homecoming prom

Add this share
Wussy Prom welcomed RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 6 contestant Kylie ‘Sonique’ Love at My Sister’s Room on Saturday. The hometown girl performed as the latest headliner on Wussy’s busy summer slate of signature parties.

Guests were asked to reclaim prom dressed in their full fantasy of a high school alter-ego do-over. As our gallery below attests, they delivered.

The queens and kings on stage did the same. In addition to Ms. Love, who sits pretty in the Final 5 on the current season of All Stars, the cast included Priscilla Chambers, Arrianna Paris, Alex Suarez, Drew Friday, Dymond Onasis, Ivy Fischer, Jarvis Hammer and Szn Alxndr.

And so went another Wussy Prom, like so many amazing nights with unforgettable looks for the record booksthat have gone before. This year’s party continued on Sunday with Wussy and Sonique hosting Bottoms Up! Brunch at City Winery. Wussy expects to announce next month’s theme and Saturday-Sunday headliner soon.
