Hamburger Mary’s Houston gives back to two wonderful teachers.
While the war on drag queens continues to rage on, two Houston teachers decided to go to their local Hamburger Mary’s to support the queens. However, that night of fun ended with them losing their jobs. But the queens were not going to let them suffer. Hamburger Mary’s will be holding a benefit for the teachers on August 3rd at the restaurant, as well as raising funds for them online. If you would like to support the cause, donate here or book a table for the upcoming benefit!
A lawyer on TikTok is proving drag queens are not the ones grooming children.
We are constantly seeing drag queens villainized in the press as ‘groomers.’ Lawyer Kristen Brown is using her TikTok account and access to cases of crimes against children to show that drag queens are, in fact, not at all a threat to kids. Do you know who is though? You guessed it, religious leaders! Watch her videos to throw out statistics at your next family gathering.
