It was a night of special guests and a reunion of sorts for “RuPaul’s Drag Race” queens at Got Leche, adding some sizzle to the usual festive Friday at the expansive Atlanta club.
Atlanta queen and “RuPaul’s” Season 3 contestant Mariah Paris Balenciaga (top photo) and Jessica Wild from Season 2 took to the stage to the delight of fans at Club Rush, which is the rebranded Chaparral on Buford Highway.
