The burly bears of Atlanta Bucks Rugby celebrated their camp drag royalty on Saturday as past winners of the squad's annual drag fundraiser came together to battle one another in a special 10th anniversary show.

So four past Miss Ruck N Maul titleholders worked the stage at Jungle to capture a new crown – Miss Ruck N Maul Universe – during a show that benefited Pride School Atlanta. Tosha Salad, who won in 2014; Barbie Q. Sugarbaker (2010), D'Kweena England (2013); and Frenchy Faux Pas (2009) tried but there could only be one winner. And that was D'Kweena England (top photo).

The show, with beats from Atlanta fave DJ Pat Scott, also included performances from the cast of the Armorettes. Camp drag queen Ruby Redd emceed.

The Bucks open their 2016 season by prepping their jocks with Rugby 101 on Jan. 23 and taking the field for their first match on Feb. 27.
