Turnabout caps run of Jungle’s weekly drag fight

Add this share

The staff of Jungle exposed their inner drag queen on Tuesday, capping the successful first season run of its drag family competition with a turnabout show. Amateur drag at its best (and worst).

The turnabout show marked the end of We Are Family, a weekly competition that pitted gay Atlanta's drag families against one another to raise funds for charity. Tuesday's show put the club's owner, Richard Cherskov (top photo), bartenders, barbacks and door staff on display. In drag. For a special touch, Cherskov mimicked Phoenix and Daniel Jones took on Ruby Redd. The two queens co-host We Are Family, which debuted in late July.

Stars of the Century dominated the competition and collected $2,865, which was donated on Tuesday to Someone Cares, a non-profit that provides HIV services to people of color.

The second season of We Are Family premieres Sept. 24 and pits LGBT sports teams against one another. In drag.
