Arkansas edges closer to introducing bill restricting drag shows

Reading now: 175

Legislation that would see drag shows classified as “adult-oriented” in the same way as strip clubs and adult theatres has been approved by the Arkansas Senate.

Drag performances would also be prohibited from taking place on public property and would not be able to happen within 1,000 feet of churches, schools, parks and libraries.

Senate Bill 43 (SB43) was passed on 24 January in a 29-6 party line vote which saw all six of the chamber’s Democrats opposing.

It will now head to the majority-Republican House where, if passed, will make Arkansas the first state to place these kinds of restrictions on drag shows.
