Seit mehreren Tagen haben "konservative" Politiker, Medienschaffende und rechte Aktivisten die @StadtBibMuc angegriffen, dafür, dass Sie eine angebliche Drag-Show vor Kindern abhalten wollen. Stimmt das? #Muenchen #drag

Ein Gesetzentwurf, der letzte Woche vom GOP-geführten staatlichen Gesetzgeber verabschiedet wurde, erlaubt es dem Staat, Lebensmittel- und Getränkelizenzen von #Unternehmen zu verhängen, auszusetzen oder zu widerrufen, die es Kindern ermöglichen,
an einer "Live-Performance für Erwachsene" teilzunehmen, die "ein juckendes, beschämendes oder morbides Interesse anregt". Der Gesetzentwurf beschreibt spezifische Handlungen, wie "die unzüchtige Exposition von prothetischen oder nachgemachten Genitalien oder Brüsten".

1/ Short 🧵 on anti-#drag efforts in Texas:

The Senate passed a bill this month that is pitched as a way to protect kids from explicit drag shows.

But legal experts said it would criminalize everything from dirty dancing to #LGBTQ Pride parades.… #txlege
2/ The lawyers identified 4 areas of concern: The bill includes vague descriptions of new crimes, specifically targets people “exhibiting” as the opposite sex, is overly broad in its definitions of “sexually oriented” and lacks discussion of an alleged scofflaw's intent. #txlege
3/ How could this suss out in the real world?

The bill criminalizes "real or simulated" groping of the butt, which the lawyers said could land performers and venues in hot water if dancing crosses is "prurient" content and is in front of a minor.… #txlege

Last year, @hunnybadgermom & I reported on Kelsey Boren's arrest ahead of a child drag event at #Antifa bar Old Nick's Pub in Eugene. (The pub is a meeting place for Antifa.) Boren was one of the adults who groomed the child into becoming a performer.…
On Oct. 23, 2022, #Antifa & far-left extremists gathered to attack the small group who protested the child drag event at Old Nick's Pub. The child performer was taught how to do drag by a now-convicted child sex offender.

Video of a British cabaret show for young children has emerged featuring a drag queen doing handstands in a thong. The show is aimed at "parents & their babies." The CABABABARAVE has an upcoming show on March 11 as part of @VAULTFestival. HT @Dominiquetaegon…
@VAULTFestival @Dominiquetaegon CABABABARAVE locked down its Instagram & has removed its Facebook page from public view so that you don't see images like these from their shows.

[1] forgot the rest, sorry, but it was good!
They took us on a whirlwind journey of laughter and empathy, politics, mental health - therapy and surviving on benefits -, family and black vs queer community issues.
And everyone agreed: it was brilliant and magnificent. 3/

"Slowly I begin the process of transformation... I'm not sure what the gathering of anthropologists will make of me or my performance in what I am calling #Dragthropology" - paraphrase of @nasrat
"With performance of living history, these reeneactors conduct public and private reverent rituals that perform a continuity of distributed trans-historical solidarity in order to evoke and honour the memory of their fictive kin political ancestors" - @trgenovese
