Johnny Butler Memorial Fund


From the moment he entered a room and shared his smile you were taken in by him. Johnny was a performer, an actor, a drag queen. And Johnny was a son, a brother, an uncle, cousin and friend. A lover of life he was always searching for the rainbow. Whether he was sitting on a rooftop dressing room in NYC with his sisters or singing a song at Galano for a holiday show he gave his best.

In his memory the Johnny Butler Memorial Fund has been established. The fund will annually distribute funds on his birthday.

butchOUT, a non-profit organization, will administer the fund and scholarship keeping in mind his strong roots in the Atlanta community. A small group of friends and family will select the recipients. All donations are tax deductible.


Please join us in honoring your and our friend and keep his FABULOUSNESS a part of future generations.
