"Cabaret Church in McHenry, Illinois, 5603 Bull Valley Rd
A radical realignment of spiritual essentials such as acceptance, compassion, and celebration. Cast off preconceptions of community. Join the madness, the beauty, the transcendence of our humanity.
Cabaret Church is Three Things: Art, Compassion, and Resistance.
Art. In all its forms & with glitter & sweat & pain & joy & desire & despair & transcendence.
Compassion. Our art & our lives are better when we work together. Compassion=with (each other) in our passion. It is also respect+love
Resistance. The system want us to conform, consume, & capitulate. We reject all the boxes that try to make us small. We are large, we contain multitudes." BL
