Gay Atlanta knows where lesbians go for nightlife, and My Sister’s Room knows how to keep them coming back. Last week’s kickoff of the bar’s signature competition, Raw Talent 5, will keep ‘em coming all summer.

Every other Friday, hosts Tiff-nay and former Raw Talent winner Romeo Lee put the 11 drag king and queen newbies through the paces and selects a winner of the night until just one is left standing at the Aug. 24 finale. That night, the winner receives the title, $800 cash and $200 in bookings. The runner up gets $200 cash and $100 worth of bookings.

So last Friday was just the beginning. All of this season’s hopefuls took the stage to a rowdy, appreciative audience. Before and after the show, dancing, patio play, food and flowing drinks kept the crowd lively. Competition resumes this Friday night.
