After Dark

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.
