Take note, Atlanta. What's the best way to silence a group of anti-gay street preachers encroaching on your Pride celebration? Umm... a flash mob performance to Lady Gaga's “Born This Way,” obviously.
As if we needed another reminder of why we must keep fighting for LGBT equality, some street preachers in Phoenix put on quite the show over the weekend during the city's 2012 Pride festival.
“God is disgusted with you,” one of the “preachers” said during the protest. “Too ugly to get a man, aren't you?”
Attention Atlanta queens, you could be a part of Logo's smash hit competition show “RuPaul's Drag Race.” The show is holding open casting calls to fill its roster for its fourth season on the air.
Atlanta drag personalities Nicole Paige Brooks and Sonique contested the second season, and Phoenix and Mariah were selected for season three. Unfortunately, no Atlanta-based queen has made too far into the competition. But you can be the one to change that!
All you need to do is fill out a simple (albeit long) application, record a short video highlighting your drag skills and include two photos (one of you in drag and one out of drag).
The ever popular "Rupaul's Drag Race" on Logo has been picked up for a third season and premieres in January with Atlanta's own Phoenix on the roster of contestants. Also from Atlanta is Mariah, but we are not very familiar with her yet.
Atlanta has been represented well on "Rupaul's Drag Race" with Nicole Paige Brooks and Sonique appearing last season on the show.
Joining Rupaul and Santino Rice as a permanent judge for the 2011 season is Michelle Visage.
