Add this share

Legendary Children shared its Rosebud with gay Atlanta on Saturday, delivering “RuPaul's Drag Race” finalist Bob the Drag Queen and a cast of characters to Heretic.

The Rosebud event also celebrated the first-anniversary of Wussy Mag, which launched in 2015 to chronicle alternaqueer culture and nightlife. When Legendary Children and Wussy come together for a party at the Heretic, drag queens get Hogtied and shit melts down.

Bob the Drag Queen (top photo), a final four competitor on the current Season 8 of “Drag Race,” hosted the evening, which included a best butt contest. Because why not. The bootylicious fun was bookmarked by performances from Arrianna Paris, Biqtch Puddin', Brigitte Bidet, Chelsea Daggers, Evah Destruction, Hydrangea Heath and Zaida J.

Bob the Drag Queen, who lives in New York City, recalled on stage growing up in metro Atlanta and a time when she was homeless. So she dished out a $2,500 donation to Lost N Found Youth, which cares for LGBT homeless youth in Atlanta. The non-profit operates an expansive thrift store to fund its mission and is currently raising funds to renovate a Midtown building into a shelter.
