Viola Vainglory fights for trans and drag rights in the midst of a horrible proposed bill in Tennessee

Viola Vainglory took to Instagram to spread awareness about devastating legislation proposed in Tennessee. This bill would ban drag completely in any space children can view. This would impact pride and other public performances. Viola made a powerful message on Instagram.

If you are in TN, please write your local representatives and fight against this bill!
