Pageantry took center stage as drag queens competed for a triple crowning and a berth to national competitions during Miss Gay Georgia USofA on Thursday.
Aria B. Cassadine (Newcomer), Angelica Sanchez (At Large) and Kennedy Davenport took home the crowns and will compete in their respective pageants later this year in Dallas, Oklahoma City and Orlando.
