Charitable Drag Queens Upset W.Va. Churchgoers

A church congregation in Kermit, W.Va., is up in arms after a drag show was booked in town to benefit cancer research.

The Witches Ball, organized by veteran performer Lark Muncy (a.k.a. Ashley Stone) is set for Saturday night at the Kermit Community Center. However, Charles Parsley, the minister at the Jesus Name Tabernacle, has rented the same community center the night before the ball to hold a special prayer service, according to the Associated Press.

"In my opinion, it's dangerous," Parseley told WSAZ News. "They might recruit others." While he says his church's members are nonviolent, Muncy said that he has received threats that he would be beaten if the show went on.

The drag show is a first for the town of 200.
