Atlanta is known for a lot of things. It has been nicknamed the “Mecca of black gays” and “the mecca of southern gays”. It’s also known for its adult entertainment, with The Cheetah and Magic City recognized globally as bucket list locations. That said, it makes sense that Atlanta has some incredible drag shows. Now that we’ve freed ourselves from the clutches of the pandemic, it’s time to return to the club and support your local drag queens, honey!
