Atlanta’s LGBTQ nightlife scene is legendary. Our claims to fame include historic gay and lesbian bars like Mary’s, Blakes on the Park, Bulldogs and My Sister’s Room. And we are home to no fewer than three “RuPaul’s Drag Race” winners.

The WUSSY Nightlife Awards, also known as The Peachies, is a brand-new award ceremony honoring the vibrant queer and drag scene of Atlanta, taking place June 12 and hosted by local drag heroine queen EllaSaurus Rex.

In this interview, “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes speaks with EllaSaurus Rex about the inaugural award show.

“We wanted it to be a full-on celebration, so we have a peach carpet and we’re encouraging everyone to come decked out,” says EllaSaurus Rex.

The inaugural WUSSY Nightlife awards show  The Peachies are June 12 at City Winery, and more information is available here.
