DeSantis Signs Bill Banning Children From Drag Shows
(Worthy News) – Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law on Wednesday that will punish businesses if they allow children to attend drag shows.
The “Protection of Children” bill was presented to the governor after clearing the state Senate 28-12 and the state House of Representatives 82-32 in April, according to the Florida House of Representatives website. Businesses are not allowed under the new law to permit children inside of drag shows held at their venues, and government agencies are authorized to impose fines, suspensions or revoke the licenses of violating businesses.
“Adult entertainment, people can do what they want with some of that, but to have minors there, I mean you’ll have situations where you’ll have an 8-year-old girl there where you have these really explicit shows and that is just inappropriate,” DeSantis said during a Wednesday press conference ahead of the bill signing.
