Eureka stuns Atlanta with raucous show at X Midtown

Add this share

The night isn’t called “Legends” for nothing. Still, the weekly drag show at X Midtown starring Shawnna Brooks went bigger with Eureka O’Hara. Way bigger.

The self-anointed “Elephant Queen” of Drag RaceAll Stars and We’re Here led a cast of popular locals. In addition to Miss Brooks and Nicole Paige Brooks, Raquel Rae Heart and Aspen York entertained the clamoring crowd in our photo gallery below.

Next up for X Midtown is Pride Weekend in Atlanta. Look for rainbows in Midtown.

The clouds will literally part on Thursday for Pride After Dark, Friday finds Derrick Berry at the Circus Pride Legends show, Saturday’s Pride Stars & Legends features Kameron Michaels and DJ Escape, and Sunday is the all-day, all-night outdoor Pride Block Party with DJs Dave Aude and Chris Cox, plus Eric James.
