Sunday night show at Scorpio in Charlotte draws hundreds

People came from all over the Southeast for a big late Sunday night "Diva" drag show at 11:30 PM Sunday night July 14 at the Scorpio in Charlotte, NC, open since 1968, and one of the largest gay discos in floor space in the nation (maybe only Station 4 in Dallas is bigger).

There was a line to get in.  The club is hard to find if you don't know where it is, on Route 27, Freedom Drive, NW of downtown, Charlotte, in a hundred-foot deep ravine carved in the Piedmont by a stream.  It didn't flood, but the lot was muddy.

The show was festive as usual, with some physical challenges to the audience, and plenty of tumbling by the rather athletic "drag queens", some of whom seemed to be real females.
