imageThree gay adult film stars and an Atlanta drag queen walk into an adults-only variety store. No, really. This isn’t the start of a joke. It happened last weekend.

The sex stars – Steven Daigle, Jake Steel and Atlanta-based Jason Sparks – popped into Brushstrokes Pleasures – the adult-oriented portion of the gay variety store in Ansely Square Shopping Center — on Oct. 9 to sign autographs, plug their, um, videos and toys, and help drag personality Mary Edith Pitts raise a few more bucks for her HIV charities.

The event was supposed to include just Daigle, the former gay cowboy contestant on “Big Brother 10.” But then Steel and Sparks joined the fun and made for a foursome unlike any Pitts has experienced. (Daigle talked with us ahead of his Atlanta appearance.)

The boys wore Frank Dandy underwear and would pull them off and sign them for a donation. Or fans could settle for an autograph and photo for a smaller contribution. The funds went to Pitts’ never-ending effort to raise cash for Jerusalem House and the Grady Infectious Disease Program.
