Friends of Diamond Lil, the legendary Atlanta drag queen who died earlier this month, are asking for help to raise money to fund her memorial service.
Diamond Lil died on Aug. 9 after battling cancer and being moved into a hospice. Now, friends are asking for help to celebrate the life of the veteran entertainer and former antiques dealer who blazed a drag trail from Savannah, where she was born, to Atlanta.
On Friday, they launched a Go Fund Me campaign – Diamond Lil Memorial – to raise $1,000 to pay for a memorial service on Sept. 17.
We are raising money to fund the memorial for our beloved Diamond Lil which will be held September 17th at The Spiritual Living Center Of Atlanta. After expenses all proceeds will go to Diamond's favorite charity, Atlanta's Lost & Found.
Diamond Lil gave so much to our community so please let's give back.
The memorial service is scheduled for 6 p.m.
