Kick off December by gathering your favorite queers together for a night of community, singing, and worship with SueAnn Shiah & Friends.

Kaleidoscope Presents: Hymns & Carols – A Queer Christian Worship Night with SueAnn Shiah & Friends
Kick off December by gathering your favorite queers together for a night of community, singing, and worship. Come as you are, come in the spirit of Advent, come in your favorite ugly Christmas sweater, come as the ghost of Christmas past, present, or future, or come in your best Christmas pageantry. SueAnn Shiah will lead us in a mix of Christmas carols, hymns, and contemporary worship songs.

If you’re familiar with her album “A Liturgy for the Perseverance of the Saints,” her theologizing on your favorite podcast, or her memes from Twitter (RIP), you know that she will probably make you laugh, cry, or help you reimagine your faith in a new way. She will be inviting some special friends to come along and help her on stage to sing and play, and hopes to see you there too! Come ready to sing your little hearts out and make the Yuletide Gay together!

Event is free, but we will be collecting donations for The Slants Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to changing culture using arts and activism seeking to amplify underrepresented voices. Suggested donation: $10.

SueAnn Shiah (@sueannshiah) is a Taiwanese American musician, filmmaker, community organizer, ethnomusicologist, and public theologian specializing in identity formation, racial justice, gender, and sexuality. Her first feature length documentary HuanDao follows her journey of discovery, identity, and belonging in a two week bike trip around Taiwan. She released her debut solo album of reclaimed hymns, “A Liturgy for the Perseverance of the Saints” in June 2018. In 2020, she joined the leadership team and editorial board of Taiwan’s New Bloom Magazine and became a guest columnist for News Lens International. In addition to her own creative and theological works, she collaborates with others in a variety of capacities as an artist manager, producer, audio engineer, songwriter, podcast producer, and creator of liturgy. She has a B.B.A. in Music Business with a Production emphasis and a Chinese minor from Belmont University, a Masters of Arts in Musicology from National Taiwan University, and is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and ordination in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
