With two handfuls of hunks, gay glossy David Atlanta hosted its first-ever Men of David fundraiser on Saturday delivering big bucks to its beneficiary and plenty of Lady Bunny drag fun to the crowd.

More than 40 hunks competed for your online votes – we offered a sneak peek of 16 faves – before the men were narrowed to nine, previewed in the magazine and worked to collect the most tips during Saturday’s event at Jungle. Fitness guru Rick Twombley (top image) won the crown and overall, the contestants and the event helped raise more than $15,000 for AID Atlanta.

Other finalists included Jeremy Ryan Allen, Tony Gowell, Philip Bonneau, Kyle Adams, Jared Allman, Griff King, Gerald Valentine and Bru Krebs.

Saturday’s event included an appearance by Lady Bunny, her first stop back in Atlanta since her rowdy pre-Pride primer in October. It also included a special night of Ruby’s Redd Light District, a weekly drag show hosted by Ruby Redd that includes Extasy Grey, Angelica D'Paige, River Song Redd, Myah Ross Monroe, Marcella Grrleen Redd and Trashetta Galore.
