Football jocks snatch some drag to close season

The gay jocks of the National Flag Football League of Atlanta closed out their season on Saturday, crowning a new champion and dusting off their tiara to name a new drag winner. 

The league pulled outs its heels, dresses and drag for the 5th Annual Ladies of the League. Three competitors – LeLe Braxton Leakes (top photo), Aqua De'Laroja and Betty Swallowz – worked it on stage but Leakes snatched it for the win. 

Former Armorettes Ally Yankadic and Sofonda Cox hosted, while Armorette Pink Le'Monaid joined Tony Kearney and Rick Westbrook judged the drag fun. Westbrook is the executive director of Lost N Found Youth, the non-profit that cares for homeless LGBT youth. The event raised money for the group.

The evening also included special performances from Ohm, who won the crown in 2013, Le'Monaid and Roxy Cotton.
