The United Court of Austin is a community service organization that presents drag shows and other
fundraisers for charity in the Greater Austin area. The membership plays a game of mock monarchy and asks
the community to elect an Emperor, Empress, and/or Emprex (Non-Binary Monarch title) each year to be
crowned at their annual fundraiser gala “Coronation.” The United Court of Austin is known for creating fun and
fabulous drag cabaret shows dating back to the 1990s. In its 30th year of charitable noble deeds, The United
Court of Austin, or UCA is excited to invite one and all to one of its royal drag productions! The best part is
that all of the tips to the entertainers and the funds raised for this event will go back to help LGBTQ+
Charities. This event will benefit local LGBTQ+ Charities: the Kind Clinic, Project Transitions, and Ashwell.
To help raise money for our causes audiences are asked to tip the entertainers with dollar bills during
the performances. All funds raised will be collected on stage and donated to local area charities through the
United Court of Austin. If you would like more information please check out the United Court of Austin website.
