RuPaul’s fix for Cheshire Bridge’s gloryholes

Add this share

RuPaul knows a thing or two about Atlanta and gloryholes, and on Monday’s “Drag Race,” she offered a way to dress them up. But is it enough to stall city plans forcing the gloryholes off Cheshire Bridge Road?

RuPaul scored her drag start in Atlanta, even picking up the city’s highest honor, a Phoenix Award, during a book tour stop in 2010. Whether she knew it or not, Monday’s “Lip Synch Extravaganza Eleganza” episode presented a way to put a little polish on Cheshire Bridge’s troubled gloryholes.

If they only had a pit crew in sexy briefs like RuPaul’s. We didn’t find one during our inside look at a trio of gloryhole sex shops on the strip.
