Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is taking another bold move against the “woke” liberals in his state. A spokesperson for the governor said his office was investigating a “Drag Queen Christmas” show. They believe that there was a possible violation of the state’s laws against exposing children to sexually explicit themes.
The Christmas drag show was held on Monday at the Broward Center of the Performing Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. A local activist, Chris Nelson, recorded a video at the event where he claimed several young children were present.
Nelson interrupted the event to protest against the presence of children at the drag show and he was escorted off of the premises by Broward sheriff’s deputies.
DeSantis spokesperson Bryan Griffin said the event would be investigated for possible legal violations.
“The Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) is aware of multiple complaints about a sexually explicit performance marketed to children held in Fort Lauderdale on December 26th,” Griffin wrote in a published statement.
The statement also said that the department was actively investigating the matter and looking at video footage as well as photographs. It also said that exposing children to sexually explicit activity is a crime in Florida and it violates the department’s licensing standards for operating a business and holding a liquor license.
DeSantis has expressed opposition to drag shows with explicit themes when allowing children to be present. An advertisement for this show at the Broward Center said, “Drag Queen Christmas.”
The police in Florida regularly conduct investigations into matters like this after tips come from the public. They even thanked the public for continuing to bring attention to these kinds of incidents. And they promised that they would keep making investigations like this a priority.
Gov. DeSantis is continuing to stand for basic family values no matter what the “woke” community does.
