SMTXQC presents Drag Out the Vote drag show, voter registration party

Sunday, January 28, 2024

The San Marcos Queer Council (SMTXQC) is hosting a drag show and voter registration event on Friday, Feb. 2 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Wake the Dead Coffee House at 1432 Old Ranch Rd 12, in San Marcos. The air of this event is to support the art and freedom of speech of drag, and to register eligible Hays County residents to vote in the upcoming primary. This is also an opportunity to learn about the San Marcos Queer Council and its goal of opening a LGTBQIA2S+ community center. SMTXQC will be asking participants to take a short survey about their vision for such a center for a free SMTXQC logo sticker.

Everyone 18+ is welcome to this LGBTQIA2S+ inclusive event. There is no charge to attend this event. Headlining is Brigette Bandit, drag-ban activist from Austin. Local San Marcos drag stars Brianna St. James, Malibu Imganization facilitate future events. The SMTXQC poster was designed by member Ensis, who can be found at EnsisArts.

SMTXQC is a community- based, grass-roots organization that facilitates peer-led LGBTQIA2S+ inclusive events throughout Hays County. SMTXQC was established in Jan. 2023 after the closure of Stonewall Warehouse, the only LGBTQIA+ specific business establishment in Hays County. The SMTXQC is in the process of establishing its State of Texas and then federal nonprofit status. The council’s long-term goal is to open a community center in San Marcos serving all LGBTQIA2S+ and ally members of Hays County. To assist SMTXQC in understanding the needs of a community space, the survey will be available at the event and on all social media portals @SMTXQC.
