California queen Shannel opened her two-night set at Burkhart’s on Thursday, keeping the divas dancing and continuing Atlanta’s tradition as a landing pad for touring “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestants.

Shannel (top photo), who competed during “Drag Race’s” first season and last fall’s “RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race,” joined Dancefloor Divas, the bar’s Thursday show headlined by Phoenix. She was among the Season 3 cast. Also among the cast of queens on Thursday was Mariah Paris Balenciaga, who was on Season 3 with Phoenix, Destiny Brooks, Alissah Brooks, Envy Van Michaels and Gia Sunflowers.

Shannel performs again Friday at Burkhart’s during the Fab Five. It’s among a host of options for your Gay Agenda this weekend.
