Lady Camden from RuPaul’s Drag Race returns to host Smuin’s LGBTQ+ Night performance and Afterparty for one-night-only December 19!
Hosted by Lady Camden, fan favorite and first runner-up on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 14, Smuin’s The Christmas Ballet LGBTQ+ Night returns to ‘slay’ again with an especially queer one-night-only performance on Tuesday, December 19th in San Francisco that is sure to be just what you need this holigay season.
Portions of the evening’s ticket sales benefit our partner organizations who are doing incredible work for the queer community. This year we are proud to once again join forces with Project Open Hand, The Imperial Council of San Francisco, the LGBT Asylum Project and others. Every ticket sold means that these amazing organizations can continue to do their transformative work in supporting queer people. See below to learn more about our partners.

The Imperial Council of San Francisco collects charitable contributions from individuals and organizations, distributing them to other non-profit and public benefit charitable organizations, and have fun doing it! Hosting and participating in a variety of entertainment and educational events and activities that raise monies, The Imperial Court of San Francisco supports the causes of diverse community-based charitable organizations that do not discriminate based on race, age, sexual orientation, religion or ethnic background.
The LGBT Asylum Project is the only San Francisco nonprofit organization exclusively dedicated to providing accessible legal representation for LGBT asylum seekers who are fleeing persecution due to their sexual orientation, gender identity and/or HIV status.
Openhouse SF was founded in 1998 to enable lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) seniors to overcome the unique challenges they face as they age by providing LGBTQ+ welcoming housing, resources, high-impact direct services, and innovative community programs. Our work reduces isolation and empowers LGBTQ seniors to improve their overall health, well-being, and economic security. We are a dynamic and entrepreneurial organization and are on the leading edge of the growing field of aging services for LGBTQ elders at the local, state, and national levels. Openhouse believes in manifesting opportunities with, and not just for, LGBTQ+ seniors to build and reconnect with community by providing housing, direct services, and community programs.
