Six queens fought to be named the baddest bitch on Edgewood during a packed show Thursday that benefitted a group that cares for homeless LGBT youth.
Brigitte Bidet hosted the drag realness as Cayenne Rouge, Ellasaurus Rex, Lavonia Elberton, Kryean Kally, Prima Alexandra and Violet Chachki (top photo) showed some evening wear and then performed as they competed for the Miss Edgewood Avenue crown. Bidet won the inaugural event last year; Chachki took it on Thursday. After all, she's got a knack for stealing crowns. Allegedly.
The event unfolded at gay-owned Noni's Deli and was sponsored by Barefoot Gypsy, which produces fundraisers for charities. A portion of the event proceeds benefited Lost N Found Youth, which cares for LGBT homeless youth.
