Men and women braved the bitter cold in Midtown on Saturday for the 10th Annual Atlanta Santa Speedo Run.
This year’s run had a dash of star power as none other than Billy Porter — fresh off a Golden Globe nomination for “Pose” — dropped in to check out the proceedings. Porter is in Atlanta filming a movie called “Limited Partners” with Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne, according to Out magazine.
The 1.5 mile run kicked off at Hudson Grille and benefits Bert’s Big Adventure.
