RuPaul Responds to Anti-Drag Bills: ‘Drag Queens Are the Marines of the Queer Movement’

March 09, 2023

RuPaul, the face of the “Drag Race” franchise, has responded to the recent wave of anti-drag and anti-trans legislation introduced by Republican lawmakers in the U.S. But they’re wrong because that is our strength.”RuPaul continued, “Drag queens are the Marines of the queer movement. Tennessee, Kentucky and Montana are three of the states moving forward with bills banning public drag performances. At least 11 state legislatures are threatening to restrict or prohibit drag show performances as the GOP continues to ramp up efforts to spread the narrative that drag queens are predators. “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 14 contestant Kerri Colby is just one of the many queens speaking out about the hate coming from the GOP.
