Madison East High School is postponing a planned drag show after school officials say they received messages that “raised a number of safety concerns.” The show was organized by a group of students with the schools Gender and Sexuality Alliance Club and was scheduled for January 19th.
Among notable conservatives voicing criticism on Twitter: former Governor Scott Walker, who compared it to a strip show.
Let’s be clear: “drag shows” are strip shows. They are wrong. They are particularly wrong at school. They are definitely not “family-friendly.” https://t.co/aZLJSk8oua
