The East Point Possums turned 16 on Saturday and celebrated with a dragrific show of dozens of drag queens turning it out for hundreds, maybe a few thousand, people to raise funds for a non-profit that cares for homeless LGBT youth.
Big hair. Big ladies. Naughty nun habits. Hairy pits. Drag queens in duct tape. All those reasons to see the show and so much more unfolded from the stage. Funds raised benefitted Lost N Found, the non-profit that Rick Westbrook (top image) helped launch last year.
The 16th Annual East Point Possums Show is part of a packed Stonewall Month celebration.
