When a video of a gay bar in Dallas hosting a drag queen show for children drew widespread outrage from parents and conservatives, it represented the latest chapter in a growing trend of drag shows for minors.

The show, which many deemed inappropriate for children, was the latest episode in a saga that dates back several years and started with the controversial ” Drag Queen Story Hour ” at local public libraries.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Texas show prompted state Rep. Bryan Slaton (R) to announce he would introduce legislation prohibiting minors to be present for such events.


“Drag shows are no place for a child. I would never take my children to a drag show and I know Speaker Dade Phelan and my Republican colleagues wouldn’t either. I will be filing legislation to address this issue in the new #txlege,” Slaton declared.

According to the report, Drag Queen Story Hour was founded in San Francisco in 2015, and defenders of the movement claims the programs are “fun and harmless ways to introduce children to the gay and transgender movement.”

Jonathan Hamilt, a spokesperson for the Drag Queen Story Hour organization, released the following statement:

“Drag Queen Story Hour could not be more disappointed in disingenuous politicians who are trying to score points by attacking programs like ours, which use drag as a traditional art form to promote literacy, teach about LGBTQ lives, and activate children’s imaginations. Rather than address real threats across the country, like the devastating epidemic of gun violence, right-wing politicians are spreading dangerous conspiracy theories about, and inciting violence against, drag performers and LGBTQ communities.

“This is part of a coordinated campaign to deny the rights of LGBTQ people, who already endure disproportionate rates of suicide and homelessness, and legislate us out of existence. Any attempt to criminalize our work is rooted in tired homophobic and transphobic hate and misinformation, and we refuse to give in to politicians who are too bigoted and boring to comprehend our vision for a world in which every child can be safe fully expressing who they are.”

Meanwhile, the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Saturday: Drag Queen Story Hour in San Lorenzo was interrupted Saturday by a group shouting homophobic and anti-LGBTQ slurs. Authorities are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime and harassment of children.

  1. STOP GROOMING OUR CHILDREN! I don’t care what anyone thinks of this comment because it is my honest opinion. All this trash started when we let the gays come out of the closet. Give them an inch…..you know the saying.

  2. Hello…not all gays are Drag Queens and don’t push their life style on others. Seems to me the Democrats and other Liberals are the ones promoting this type of behavior

    • Take this crap out “ON THE MEDIA” they are the one supporting this crap and giving them a megaphone. They are the ones who push that perverted narrative.

  3. The kids probably like them because they look like clowns They think they’re going to a clown show because they are clowns
