Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, has requested that those involved in an “all ages” drag show that occurred Saturday in Plano, Texas be prosecuted for what he described as “grotesque, disturbing behavior.”
The drag show is one of several “child-friendly” drag shows that have been cropping up around the country in recent months.
The Texas show, which was advertised as being appropriate for “all ages” and allowed minors accompanied by a parent or guardian, included several drag queens and a dominatrix. A disturbing video of the show was posted on Twitter by BlazeTV journalist, Sarah Gonzales, who wrote, “This is something that was overtly sexual. And now apparently the left is gaslighting me into thinking that I’m somehow the crazy one for having a problem with this.” Gonzales went on to say, “It gets worse. More footage to come. We WILL stop this” in another social media post.

A young girl can be seen in the background with a confused look on her face and at one point in the full footage of the show that Gonzales shot, the girl can be seen clutching a dollar bill and having her outstretched arm directed toward a drag queen by an adult.
After seeing the video, AG Paxton said, “This is grotesque, disturbing behavior. Under Texas law, local district and county attorneys are charged with taking up the mantle to protect Texas kids by prosecuting these types of totally inappropriate acts.” Paxton then went on to discuss the need for better protection of minors in Texas saying, “What’s more, in 2023, the Texas Legislature should amend the Texas Penal code to expressly prohibit this kind of grossly sexual conduct and empower my Office to prosecute when district and county attorneys refuse.”
It is still unclear whether those involved with the drag show will be prosecuted, but the footage of the incident has solidified the outrage about allowing young children to attend such events for many parents and adults.
