VIEW PHOTOS | 6th Annual Miss Ruck & Maul @ Jungle
Dude looks like a lady. Well, kind of as the Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club traded its snug shorts and jerseys for drag on Saturday.
The gay sports club hosted its 6th Annual Ruck & Maul at Jungle. The drag pageant is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Bucks. The event raised about $3,700, not bad for a “reality dragstraviganza” that benefits both the Bucks and CHRIS Kids. Last year’s event raised $7,500.
On Saturday, four contestants—Lindsey Lohang, Shelita Beaver, Cristal Chandelier and Barbie Q. Sugarbaker—competed for the (mostly) coveted title of Miss Ruck & Maul. Two rounds of performances later, Barbie (top photo) took the crown.
The Bucks recently wrapped their fall season with a 14-0 road win against Nashville. They closed the five-match schedule with a 2-3 record.
