Tennessee bill would pose criminal penalties for performing drag shows in front of kids

Drag show performances where children are allowed to attend could soon become criminalized in Tennessee.

Under SB 0003 sponsored by state Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson, anyone who “engages in an adult cabaret performance on public property or in a location where the adult cabaret performance could be viewed by a person who is not an adult” could be charged with a felony.

If passed, SB 0003 would require any private establishment hosting a show involving drag performers to require patrons to show ID proving they are 18 years old or older before being admitted to the event, according to The Tennessean

The measure would make any first offense a misdemeanor, while a second or subsequent offense would be a felony punishable by up to six years in prison.
