Do not cross this pistol-packing drag queen

Add this share

With a hand on the pistol in her purse, this Atlanta drag queen prepared for things to get crazy when a bro confronted her at QuikTrip. But a quick verbal jab proved sufficient to keep her from becoming his punk.

Will straight guys ever learn that throwing shade at Atlanta's drag queens is a mistake? They fight back like Lateasha Shuntel, who performs at Blake's and 10th & Piedmont. She will be no one's "punk bitch tranny boo."

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I forgot to share! I was on my way home the other nite minding my own business & of course stopped by where? Yep u got it the QT! So im getting ready to check out & here come the trouble maker! He said awwwwwe shit aint u a dude so I looked at him real crazy & said of course aint u? Left him standing there looking stupid with my hand down in my purse on my pistol! They gonna learn find another punk bitch tranny boo not here!!!!!! For all my sista's that go thru shit like this all the time hold ya head up girls I got ur back! They really try it these days yall!

The incident took place a few days before Don Pollo Bar & Grill on Buford Highway kicked out drag performer Alissah Brooks, whose two friends then recorded their confrontation with employees. Straight bros: Don't be a dick.
