MET Atlanta was packed on Friday night as Southern Fried Queer Pride and MORPH presented the Chop the Stigma Kiki Ball.
The event was in collaboration with Living Walls as part of the group’s “Start Talking, Stop HIV” series.
DJ Byrell the Great was on hand for the ball, which featured categories like virgin runway, virgin vogue, OTA (open to all) runway, tag team performance, OTA realness, OTA face and OTA performance. All performers incorporated the HIV/AIDS theme into their performances.
