Florida Investigating Sexually Explicit Drag Show Targeting Children

  • The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation is investigating a drag show in Fort Lauderdale after complaints about the sexually explicit performance being marketed to children.
  • The show named “A Drag Queen Christmas” was held in Fort Lauderdale on Dec. 26. Other shows are scheduled for Miami, Orlando, and Clearwater.
  • “Exposing children to sexually explicit activity is a crime in Florida, and such action violates the Department’s licensing standards for operating a business and holding a liquor license,” the department said in a statement.

The venue in Fort Lauderdale said admission is limited to patrons 18 years of age or over, unless accompanied by a parent.
