It was billed as a roast of Mr. Charlie Brown and while there were plenty of laughs, a panel of veteran Atlanta drag queens could only thank and praise (mostly) the local and Southern legend on Wednesday, July 25, as part of the opening of the Marietta Rainbow Festival taking place through the weekend.
Seems the queens were too afraid to say anything bad about the Mouth of the South.
From Bubba D. Licious to Heather Daniels, Lauren LeMasters, Monica Van Pelt and Lily White, the Atlanta queens paid homage to "America's Ultimate Bitch" who gave many of them them their starts in the original Charlie Brown Cabaret at Backstreet some 20 years ago.
Next weekend brings two opportunities to gather with LGBT friends, celebrate community and help young people.
The 7th annual Backpack in the Park hopes to take party-goers back to their childhoods to help a new generation of young people get a successful start in the new school year.
This year’s theme, “Summer Camp,” gives attendees the chance to relive such childhood camp classics like crafting and s’mores while collecting backpacks and school supplies for Georgia’s less fortunate kids.
