Gay Atlanta jocks do drag for Purple Dress Run

Add this share

Gay ruggers and their athletic supporters did camp drag proud on Saturday as they power walked, slow walked and even jogged their way through a charity bar crawl from the Atlanta Bucks. 

The 9th Annual Purple Dress Run – we've snapped pics in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and again this year – raised funds for the gay squad and Lost N Found Youth. And these jocks do it with creativity and flair, just like we told you they would.

The event added a new stop – Publix Draft House on Peachtree – and a pit stop for adult popsicles at the home of Wild Cherry Sucret across from Piedmont Park. That's in addition to the usual starting point of Mixx, power walking to Blake's and stumbling to Eagle for a post-run cookout at the Eagle.
