Meet the United Methodist priest featured on HBO’s drag truth reveal “We’re Here”
“Welcome to church,” Pastor Craig Duke said before stepping onstage.
This wasn’t the normal Sunday solution Duke manages as lead pastor of Newburgh United Methodist Church. It wasn’t held within the wall surfaces of his church near Evansville, Indiana. And also Duke doesn’t usually provide his lectures while using a high pink wig as well as 4-inch-heeled boots– or follow them by lip-syncing to Ke$ha’s “We Are Who We Are.”
This service belonged to a drag reveal that aired on Monday evening’s episode of “We’re Here” on HBO.
The Emmy-nominated truth program adheres to prominent drag musicians Eureka O’Hara, Shangela and also Bob the Drag Queen as they take a trip to little cities as well as towns throughout the United States, transforming locals into drag queens. This week, the show concerned Evansville– and also for Duke.
“It was an unbelievably remarkable, revitalizing, deepening, powerful spiritual experience,” Duke told Religion News Service.
