MSR Halloween battle royale pits queens vs. kings

Add this share

The competition is fierce on any given week, but put drag contestants in a costume challenge, and it’s all out war. Halloween weekend brought out the big guns in this season’s Raw Talent.

The holi-gay found My Sister’s Room already in the throes of its seventh-season contest to find the next gay Atlanta superstar. Saturday night’s challenge theme became Halloween itself, so the kings, queens and burlesque performers cranked up the concepts, from masked bois to Catwoman, Maleficent to towel boys, and beyond.

Jordan Michael McCord and Romeo Lee played host, and MSR owners Jami Siden and Jen “Chase” Daniels served as judges. A $200 costume contest was also on deck.
