Black Hearts Ball puts Valentine’s twist on Heretic

Add this share

Legendary Children put their twist on Valentine's Day with a little help from local queens and a “RuPaul's Drag Race” competitor, all to raise funds for an LGBT non-profit. 

The Black Hearts Ball on Saturday at Heretic raised more then $5,000 for Lost N Found Youth, which cares for homeless LGBT teens in Atlanta. The evening – headlined by Season 7 queen Max from “RuPaul's Drag Race” – was a dance party and drag showcase that also included Arrianna Paris, Biqtch Puddin', Brigitte Bidet, Dynisty St. James, Kryean Kally, Lavonia Elberton and Taylor Alxndr.
