The nearly day-long event included drag queens, drag kings, bands, burlesque performers and a team of DJs to provide music, all corralled by emcee and drag personality Ruby Redd (middle photo). Even foul weather didn’t slow down the event, which shifted gears from the parking lot to indoors when the storms moved in.
Next up for MondoHomo is Mondo May Day on May 2. The main event, the five-day MondoHomo, kicks off May 27. The multi-location, multi-faceted festival offers a holiday weekend of entertainment, social justice and hipster fun.
“Fundraisers are absolutely crucial to putting on the festival,” Kiki Carr (bottom photo, left), a MondoHomo founder and organizer, told Project Q Atlanta in an interview last week. “We raise money in three ways: sponsors, fundraisers and tickets. Fundraisers are at least half that.”
