Burkhart’s releases ‘RuPaul’s’ Raven on Atlanta

Add this share

Every gay fan knows that of all the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” queens, Season 2’s Raven will forever remain one of the fiercest. She served face, body and signature attitude during a two-night stint at Burkhart’s.

The call of the Raven (top photo, center) was in the air after she told Project Q in advance of the show that touring to places like Atlanta means living her drag dream. Just like predecessors Sonique and Shannel before her, the gays gathered for Raven’s Thursday and Friday performances as special guest to some local favorites, including fellow “Drag Race” alums Phoenix and Mariah (photo, left-right).

And just like Shannel, Raven lit up a cigarette to scandalize the house. Yes, girl. It was strictly against the bar’s new no smoking policy. And no, girl. You would not get away with it.
