The City of Fremantle, a local government in Western Australia, is looking for Drag Queens.
The rate-payer funded organisation is hosting an all-ages show on September 17 and has called for all Drag Queens and Kings to apply.
Drag queens are males who dress up as hypersexualised women, heavily based on out-dated and offensive stereotypes. Drag Kings are usually females who dress up as males and are also hypersexualised stereotypes.
A quick glance at any number of drag pages on social media reveal the adult-only nature of their entertainment.
Fremantle City claims the show will be “age-appropriate”. What does that even mean?
Why does any child need to be exposed to such content?
Why does any child need to be exposed to a display of adults appropriating the opposite sex?
Cultural appropriation is heavily frowned upon and yet sexual appropriation is being celebrated and funded by the taxpayer!
Blackface is a big no-no, but woman-face is worthy of a show?
The double-standards are incredible.
Drag queens belong in adult-only bars and clubs, they are certainly not for kids.
