Chipotle offers drag stars' go-to orders to raise money for LGBTQ charities

Your next Chipotle order could benefit a LGBTQ charity.

The fast-casual chain is offering go-to meals from three drag performers – Trixie Mattel, Kim Chi, and Gottmik – through Wednesday; $1 from each entree purchase will benefit an LGBTQ charity of their choice. The maximum donation is $15,000 per charity.

The three drag stars will offer more information about their charity of choice on Sunday at 11 a.m. Pacific Standard Time through a drag lunch on Trixie Mattel’s YouTube channel. The show will be modeled after traditional drag brunches and feature comedic bits, talk about the go-to orders and “Chipotle-fied looks,” according to a news release.

Chipotle is offering go-to meals from three drag performers -- Trixie Mattel, Kim Chi, and Gottmik -- through June 16, with $1 from each entree order benefitting a LGBTQ charity of their choice.
