The 16th an­nual East Point Pos­sums Show in down­town East Point at­tracted more than 2,000 peo­ple June 15 and raised ap­prox­i­mately $20,000 for this year’s ben­e­fi­ciary, LostN-Found Youth, an or­ga­ni­za­tion that helps home­less LGBT youth.

More than 25 per­form­ers and artists do­nated their time and tips to the cause. The Pos­sums, led by “ma­tri­arch” Rick West­brook (Shenitta Lott, aka Rap­ture Di­vine Cox), John Jef­frey (Prissy Cilla, aka Queen of Desserts) and Ch­es­ley Thur­man (Dina Dain­ty­mouth, aka Dou­ble D), state they are “do­ing great work through bad drag.”

DJ Di­ablo Rojo pro­vided the beats and high­lights in­cluded num­bers from the At­lanta Bucks Rugby team, Sum­mer Knight, the East Point Vil­lagers and the Pos­sums them­selves.
