Drag Icon Jackie Beat Will Not Let a Pandemic Break Her 22-Year Holiday Revue Streak

Forget tiny Off-Broadway theaters—this year, Jackie Beat and friends go digital across the country with Christmas Is Not Canceled!

We’ve had to bid goodbye to many beloved holiday traditions this year, but one refused to bow to the pandemic: Jackie Beat’s Christmas Is Not Canceled, now streaming, preserves the 22-year run of the drag icon’s holiday shows.

Featuring porn favorite Boomer Banks, as well as Alan Cumming, Parker Posey, Leslie Jones, Michael Urie, Margaret Cho, Ross Mathews, Jackie Hoffman, Peppermint, Bianca Del Rio, Varla Jean Merman, William, and many more, the special streams on Stellar through December 27. Filled with twisted takes on classics and plenty of wild new tunes, the evening finds Beat playing hostess to her fabulous friends, all gathering virtually to celebrate the holidays and the end of 2020.

Ever since the 1998 premiere of Jesus Christ, It’s Your Birthday!, which included songs like “Sleigh Ride in Leather With You” and “Black Christmas,” made the trades—The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Right’s 1998 Report on Anti-Catholicism, that isthe show has become a much-loved December favorite. This year, welcome Beat and her friends into your home for the holidays.
