East Point Possums drag up big bucks for charity

Big hair, big ladies, hairy pits and drag gone wild was the theme on Saturday as the East Point Possums celebrated their 18th annual dragrific fundraiser with a crowd of hundreds.

Nearly three-dozen acts from across the drag land took part in the open-air show, a summer spectacle that makes gay-friendly East Point even gayer to raise funds for Lost N Found Youth. Last year, the event collected more than $25,000 for the non-profit that helps homeless LGBT youth. Organizers have not announced a tally for Saturday's event. 

The show is a highlight of a big, busy June in gay Atlanta.
