In an evening of “holiday folly and jazzy numbers,” a Houston church Tuesday will host a Christmas-themed drag show to benefit the Montrose Center, a community center offering aid and resources primarily to LGBTQ+ individuals.

Trinity Episcopal Church will host the event at Kiki’s Bar, 2409 Grant St. in Houston, and a general admission ticket to the event will run about $150 and up, with premium seating running about $1,750.

The Montrose Center is home to dozens of LGBTQ+ friendly organizations, offering resources and counseling services and home to the largest LGBTQ senior living residence in the United States.

The “Drag Me to Church” event will be a first for the Houston church. It was organized in part, as a response to legislative measures passed by Texas lawmakers to restrict public drag shows in the state. That measure, Senate Bill 12, has since been blocked by a federal judge.

“Trinity Church values inclusion, diversity, the arts and creating a church community where all people are welcome,” according to the event page. “We are on a mission to share Christ’s life-changing love with everyone.”

“The Montrose Center is an integral part of our city, providing crucial services to the LGBTQ+ community while valuing the dignity of all,” according to that page.

Trinity Episcopal Church has long supported LGBTQ+ efforts, partnering with local organizations to connect LGBTQ youth with resources. It’s also been named one of Houston’s top LGBTQ-friendly churches.

The event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets for the 21+ event can be purchased through Trinity Episcopal Church’s website.
