SOUTH BEND, Ind. — A South Bend church is hosting a drag show for kids next month. The Well Coffee House, which is part of (and inside) River Park Grace Church, is hosting the “All Ages Drag Pride Edition” event on June 9th. According to the portal used to purchase tickets for the event, children 5 and under get in for free. While kids 6-17 get in at half price. The event goes from 6:00pm-9:00pm.
The church held a similar Halloween themed drag show for children in October of 2022. During that event, free admission was offered to children 4-years-old and younger with children 5-17 receiving a discounted entry fee of $5. However, adults had to pay $10. Both events were put together in coordination with the South Bend LGBTQ Center.
The Halloween themed event received major backlash from the public with a large protest during the show. Ironically, members of the Satanic Temple, Northern Indiana Atheists and abortion clinic volunteers provided security for the church during the protest.
According to event details on the LGBTQ Center’s website, the event is being held at The Well Coffee House on Mishawaka Avenue in South Bend. A quick search of The Well’s website shows the coffee shop and River Park Grace Church are the same entity. The Well is the church’s coffee shop.
According to the church’s website, the executive pastor is a woman by the name of Megan Chandler. RNM searched Chandler’s social media feeds that show she is currently a Ph.D. candidate for Counseling Psychology. She currently holds a masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She also claims to be the founder of The Well on her Facebook page.
OTHER DRAG SHOWS
The LGBTQ Center has a long history of offering drag shows to children. Last summer, RNM broke a story about another LGBTQ Center drag show in which a Girl Scout Troop attended. At that event, young Girl Scout members tipped the drag queens with Girl Scout Cookies.
