Sun sets on Pride, Starlight Cabaret stars shine

Add this share

As the sun went down on anotherAtlanta Prideand visions of drag queens danced in their heads, the masses migrated toward the festival’s main stage for the annual Starlight Cabaret on Sunday night.

Even people who don’t do a lot of drag shows the rest of the year tend to stick around Piedmont Park for Pride's annual closing number. And by closing number, we mean dozens of numbers by dozens of select local grrrls and bois who know how to put on a show. After a weekend full of Pride, these divas turned it out and shut it down in style.
