Nearly 70% of voters in a suburb of Illinois said no to drag queens using tax-payer funded places like schools and libraries. This ballot vote comes after two libraries in the area hosted drag queen events in June. One show was adults only, while the other show invited children as young as toddlers to attend. The libraries also coordinated with the local public high school to promote the event. To be clear`, these are tax-payer funded institutions working together to promote an event where men dress up as women and dance sexually in front of children. Now is this something that is good and healthy for our children and society? The voters in St Louis, Illinois made it clear that the answer is no. And they won’t tolerate it in their community. Whether other cities across the nation say no to public drag queen events remains to be seen.
