RuPaul’s Drag Race queens speak out against anti-trans bills
It’s no secret that the Republicans are ruining the world. In Tennessee, new legislation has been introduced that places a ban on minors attending drag shows. We’re only into March of this year and already over 300 bills have been introduced that directly attack queer and trans people and performers alike. So, some of your favorite queens are taking a stand in a new video that aims to spread awareness. Please watch Sasha Colby, Kerry Colby, Kylie Sonique Love, and Heidi N Closet, just to name a few, speak on this important issue here.
