Florida Officials Are Investigating Fort Lauderdale’s Sexually Explicit “Drag Queen Christmas” Show Attended by Young Children


    Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) is looking into a sexually explicit drag show that was held in Fort Lauderdale on December 26 and included children in the audience.

    The drag event, “A Drag Queen Christmas,” is the same one that was attended by Knoxville’s Democratic mayor in her city and that featured simulated sex acts as well as exposed fake breasts and additional explicit content and scenarios.

    In a message to media contacts, Bryan Griffin, press secretary for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), explained that his office is working on behalf of the DBPR and said the department would be able to answer follow-up questions when more details become available.

    According to a statement, the DBPR was told of “multiple complaints about a sexually explicit performance marketed to children held in Fort Lauderdale on December 26th” and is “actively investigating.” The investigation involves “video footage and photographs from the event.”

    “DBPR will, like in other cases, take action,” the statement reads, making clear that “exposing children to sexually explicit activity is a crime in Florida, and such action violates the Department’s licensing standards for operating a business and holding a liquor license. The Department will share any collected evidence with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) for potential criminal liability.”

    The statement went on to read:

    “The Department frequently conducts investigations into these matters upon tips provided by the public, and we thank the public for continuing to bring attention to these incidents. Investigations of such allegations will remain a priority for the Department and, indeed, are ongoing.”

    Breitbart News covered the show's national tour:

    “The show, which went on a national tour, featured sexual gestures, independent reporter Tayler Hansen explained. Hansen, who attended and reported on the show in Austin, Texas, captured video of the event.

    “In Hansen’s video, a drag queen can be seen talking to a nine-year-old and praising a mom for bringing her child before saying, ‘Hello! Are you reaching for my titties? Are you hungry?’ The drag performer was wearing an extremely inappropriate costume that revealed fake breasts.

    “In another clip, two men dressed in revealing reindeer costumes simulate sex with each other. Hansen estimated that roughly 20 children were present at the event.”

    In the summer, the DBPR issued a formal complaint against a Miami bar that provided drag shows that were open to kids.
