Legislation to stop kiddie drag shows in NC is here!



There is nothing worse than seeing grown men twerking in front of kindergartners in wigs and G-strings.

Republican lawmakers agree and today introduced legislation to stop it.

Reps Jeff Zenger and Donny Lambeth from Forsyth, Donnie Loftis from Gaston, and Mark Pless from Haywood sponsored a bill to clarify live adult entertainment rules. From HB673:

It is unlawful for a person to engage in adult live entertainment (i) on public 12 property or (ii) in a location where the adult live entertainment is in the presence of an individual 13 under the age of 18.

The legislation now includes male or female impersonators - drag performers - in the definition of adult entertainment. Bill text:

the term "adult live entertainment" means a performance featuring topless dancers, exotic dancers, strippers, or male or female impersonators who provide entertainment that appeals to a prurient interest, regardless of whether or not performed for consideration

Violations of the law will be punishable by a Class 1 misdemeanor if the law passes.
