Alongside such favorite Christmas productions as “The Nutcracker” and “Black Nativity,” a local chorus is introducing a new holiday show that it hopes will become an annual tradition.

“Haul Out the Holly — Kid-Sized Show,” is the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus’ first-ever concert just for children. Set for 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, at the England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall, this performance will benefit Globe Santa and will include a greeting from Santa Claus himself.

The performance, organized in cooperation with the Family Equality Council, is intended to be wholesome entertainment for families of all kinds, but also offers an opportunity for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender parents to come together with their families.

Craig Coogan, the chorus’s executive director, said that the children’s concert was a natural outgrowth of the changes gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people have seen over recent decades.
