Best Old-School Drag Queen

Diamond Lil

Staff Pick

Atlanta is truly lucky to have DIAMOND LIL in our midst. Of all the female illusionists who’ve graced the stages of the clubs and after-hours gin joints in this fair city, let’s face it: She’s the queen. Lil is the only one who has withstood the test of time. Old-timers remember the days when she only played at the hippest rock clubs in the ’70s and ’80s. The majority of the gender-bending, wigged-out and falsified flock of she-gulls in the scene merely lip-sync and strut. Diamond Lil has actual songs and two albums to her credit. She’s not a drag at all; she’s a rare and fair lady. And she’s so old-school, she doesn’t even have a website.
