  1. Milton Berle, Flip Wilson, Martin Lawrence, Harvey Korman, Jaleel White, Keenan Thompson, Will Ferrel, and Eddie Murphy have all done drag and are funny and straight.

  2. The DemocraticRats Party = The Preferred Party of the idiot lucifer itself……..

  3. Love who you are god love every one if you hate LGBT 🏳️‍🌈 and have kids remember Karma is a bitch let people live we are not god let love live enjoy he bless everyone ❤❤❤❤ we are no one to judge live and let live🙏🏻💯💯💯😘😘😘😘👍

  4. The queer businesses amd people pay taxes …fucking churches don't….yet they want to dictate how we love ….

  5. If you don’t like drag, don’t go to drag shows. We don’t need to regulate drag (that’s never been an issue). It’s a stupid waste of tax dollars. If you want to protect children, go after all the priests and preachers raping kids.

  6. It's sad I live here in Tennessee in Murfreesboro and we started a Gay Pride it seemed to be doing well and then the religious groups started their crap . Judge not lest thee be judged. I want a Big group of Gay and Gay supporter's to come visit bring your kids. We advocate a safe place for all, but sadly have been thrown to the side. We are good enough to fight for are freedom in War but in peace we have no voice. Sincerely Auntie Switch. Bless your Blackened gingerbread hearts Government of Tennessee if you have a heart 🎃🌻🧹🍄✨🎃🌻🧹🍄💥🎃🌻🧹🍄😳

  7. BAN THEM! Drag Queens DO NOT belong near children, unless they're their own kids. Drag Queens are an Adult theme, they belong in adult ONLY spaces.


  9. John Travolta danced across a stage with all those kids in Hairspray. 🎉

  10. Multiple videos with lewd drag acts in front of children are online.

  11. So you can change your gender all together you just cant dress up as the opposite gender? Lmao ok

  12. People are being killed, shot, & tortured all over our world.. & this is what Republicans focus on. Idiots.

  13. When the mainstream media doesn’t tell the whole story….. y’all need to do your own research, they’re not banning drag. They ARE banning shows for children, and if you look it up you will understand why. They’re not innocent runway walks displaying flashy makeup and clothes. These people are behaving as if they’re in strip clubs, in little thongs, putting their business in very small children’s faces. If you can watch someone doing that to little kids and be OK with it, something is wrong with you. I promise these queens commenting in this interview have NOT seen the videos of what has been going on… “ITS NOT GONNA LICK ITSELF” sure is not child friendly.

  14. Bizarre they have to mention drag QUEENS when people are hungry and sick and they dont have INSURANCE …….
    Just bizarre to me

  15. This just shows how ignorant people in this country are. The only people grooming are the people protesting. These people are absolutely ridiculous. We have real problems in the world, but they choose this platform. They are nasty bullies… teaching their kids how to be nasty bullies.

  16. A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.

    Deuteronomy 22:5

  17. When I was a little girl I saw a magical movie called To Wong Foo Thanks For Everything Julie Newmar and it was my first exposure to drag and it was amazing. It showed how drag queens are just people who like to dress up and be themselves. It was a beautiful experience and I think the representation in Tennessee need to see it. ✨

  18. This is amazing. Ban these freaks

  19. ever seen with kids hooters with girls in undewear wheres the same energy you cant have selective outrage

  20. Drag Queens are ADULT entertainers they really shouldn't be performing in front of children.

  21. Too many countries start with the letter A for any of them to be abbreviated to ABC

  22. How sad that people, in today’s world, have to worry about their safety just because of the clothes / makeup they wear. Very sad times.

  23. Very well said, Queen Jinkx!

  24. It was beautiful to see both RuPaul and Jinkx Monsoon speak out on all of these negative actions against the LGBTQIA+ community. For the more folks that are from the drag world that speak out in protest, the easier that things will be in this fight against what is happening in states like Tennessee, Florida and Texas. Much love to RuPaul and Jinkx Monsoon for being very awesome role models for both kids and adults.


  26. Can we clarify this headline please? Drag artists performing for children and toddlers has become a political target, as it darn well should. This “agenda” is getting out of hand.

  27. Please everyone hear the gospel message before it's too late! Jesus is our only hope for freedom and Salvation not politicians! Ray Comfort has FREE movies and interviews on YouTube with the gospel!!!

  28. Great how they wanna ban drag shows, but at the same time, guns are all over the place 🤮
