Remembering Diamond Lil, Atlanta Drag Pioneer

Aug 12, 2016

Atlanta lost one of its most vivacious performers this week. Diamond Lil was one of the pioneers of Atlanta’s buxom drag community. She passed away Tuesday morning after a battle with cancer at 80 years old.

Diamond Lil was born in Savannah, Georgia in 1935. As a little boy, she was already fascinated with women’s wear, donning her first drag ensemble at the age of five.

That night was just the first time that Diamond faced harassment in Savannah.
