The performance, delivered in her quirky style, is full of giggle-worthy moments and inside jokes for the queer community.

Netflix’s special is filled with stars and laughs, but icon Coolidge steals the show.

Hallmark and Lifetime will also release LGBTQ-themed holiday movies this year after LGBTQ Nation called on the networks to create flicks that centered queer relationships and storylines and not solely cisgender heterosexuals.
