Drag is art; drag isn’t dangerous, and drag performances belong in Texas, TFN noted in an email to supporters. “SB 12 has already passes the Senate, which means this hearing is our last chance to drop a card or testify against it.”= The hearing starts at 8 a.m.

Those who can go to the Capitol but are not planning to testify are encouraged to “drop a card,” which means to officially register you stance on the bill.
