The Armorettes celebrated a milestone anniversary by doing what they do best — raising money to fight HIV/AIDS.
The camp drag troupe marked its 40th anniversary with a blowout show at Buckhead Theatre on Jan. 19.
Armorettes past and present took part, including Jayne Russell, Anita Mann, Knomie Moore, Deva Station, Bubba D. Licious, Alexandria Martin, Coretta Scott Queen and Wild Cherry Sucret.
The group also received the Phoenix Award from Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, who appeared in a video saluting the group.
