- Arkansas Republican Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is set to ban drag shows in order to “protect” children after already cracking down on critical race theory in schools.
- Sanders and her supporters said the bill, which would redefine drag shows as “adult-oriented performances,” is meant to protect social values as it bans the shows from public areas with children despite outcry from the LGBTQ community.
- Alexa Henning, a spokeswoman for the governor, said the bill was not aimed at ‘banning anything,’ but rather about “protecting kids” from “sexually explicit drag shows.”
- ‘Only in the radical left’s woke dystopia is it not appropriate to protect kids,’ Henning told The Washington Post.
