AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — The show “A Drag Queen Christmas” went on as planned on Tuesday, while also drawing protesters and counter-protesters.
The show had an increased police presence along with protesters and counter-protesters who were asked to move further away from the venue at times.
As was previously reported by KAMR/KCIT, Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson commented on the show, after church groups expressed concern, earlier in November that outlined the way events are hosted at public facilities and expressed her opinion regarding the event.
KAMR/KCIT reached out to the city for comment Tuesday, but we were told no one was available for comment.
The show, featuring performers from Ru Paul’s Drag Race, was held at the Globe-News Center for the Performing Arts and only a handful of tickets were still available the day of the show.
