Undercover agents saw nothing ‘lewd’ at Orlando drag show. Florida is going after venue anyway

March 20, 2023

An incident report from undercover state agents shows they observed nothing ‘lewd’ at a drag show in Orlando last year where children were present. Venues in Fort Lauderdale and Clearwater also put on “A Drag Queen Christmas,” although DBPR hasn’t filed complaints against them. The new bills being considered in Tallahassee are part of a wave of legislation around the country targeting drag shows. The group that runs the Plaza Live, the Orlando Philharmonic Plaza Foundation, declined to comment for this story. This is the publicity image for the ‘Drag Queen Christmas’ show at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
