Description

The Armorettes are a Legendary Camp Drag Organization that has been around for over 39 years and counting. They have raised over 2.20 Million dollars in the 39 year period one dollar at a time. The Armorettes' namesake comes from where we started and our tale began, at the Armory Bar in Atlanta, GA. The original Armorettes were Thelma, Julie Garden, Justa Tish, Kitty Carlisle, Ginny Tonic and Liz Helen. These original six stepped up for the community during a very dark time in the late 70's and early 80's, when the AIDs epidemic was becoming more and more rampant and out of control. They decided enough was enough and if no one was going to help our community that they would step up and do so.

So they decided to put on drag shows at the Armory in Atlanta, GA in order to raise money for their friends who were sick and dying from AIDS. Every dollar they took in they immediately turned around and put it to good use by distributing the money to those in need. We as Armorettes have always stepped up and done what was right and more importantly what was needed for our community and will continue to do so till a cure is found.
