Who among us doesn't love a good family friendly drag show? The American Pops Orchestra, a DC-based orchestra, presents "Drag Out the Holly: A Holiday Drag Extravaganza” on December 19 at 9 PM ET. Featuring drag artists Jujubee, Alexis Michelle, Peppermint, Lagoona Bloo, as well as Equality Advocate and Attorney Brian Sims and Bright Light Bright Light, this concert broadcast includes performances of holiday classics alongside members of The American Pops Orchestra.
APO is partnering with LGBTQ+ organizations and other nonprofits across the country not only to enjoy an evening of holiday cheer, but to use this performance as an opportunity to raise awareness of the organizations working for equality throughout the country. This broadcast can be viewed free of charge and donations are encouraged to support APO and their partner organizations. Each partnering organization has been given a unique donation code that individuals can use to allocate 50% of their donation to that group.
Gays with Kids is partnering with The American Pops to raise money for APO’s Musical Kids Kits. All donations made using the code “GAYSWITHKIDS” will contribute 50% of the gift to support the creation of The American Pops Orchestra's Musical Kids Kits. These music activity packs are created by APO and distributed via food pantries and diaper banks to share musical resources with underserved children.
