Big hair, big ladies, hairy pits and drag gone wild was the theme on Saturday as the East Point Possums celebrated their 18th annual dragrific fundraiser with a crowd of hundreds.
Nearly three-dozen acts from across the drag land took part in the open-air show, a summer spectacle that makes gay-friendly East Point even gayer to raise funds for Lost N Found Youth. Last year, the event collected more than $25,000 for the non-profit that helps homeless LGBT youth. Organizers have not announced a tally for Saturday's event.
The show is a highlight of a big, busy June in gay Atlanta.
