This election cycle, Florida’s senator Marco Rubio has firmly established himself in a right-wing, anti-LGBTQ+ message camp that is ultra-MAGA.

In some of his recent television advertisements, the senior senator included conservative talking points, which has caused a person featured in the ads to wonder why he is obsessed with her.Drag queen Lil Miss Hot Mess asks Rubio, “Why are you so obsessed with me and drag story hour?” in a video collaboration with GLAAD.The senator from the sunshine state, which just had one of its worst hurricane disasters, has spent much of his time attacking drag performers as far away as Germany.In June, Rubio sent a letter to Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall in which he perpetuates the false smear that LGBTQ+ people and drag queens are somehow sexualizing children.“It is completely insane for Ramstein AFB to use on-installation resources for rituals like ‘Drag Queen Story Time,’” Rubio wrote. “These inappropriate events are extremely divisive at home for good reason; in all cases, they place young children in close proximity with adults who are intentionally and explicitly sexualized.”This is an old and recycled trope that conservative influencers have employed with ubiquity this election cycle.“We’re simply out here reading books to children, encouraging them to use their imagination to envision a more just and fabulous world,” Lil Miss Hot Mess, who is on the board of Drag Queen Story Hour, says in the video.

President and CEO of GLAAD, Sarah Kate Ellis, tells The Advocate that what politicians like Rubio are doing to scapegoat LGBTQ+ communities is harmful and must stop.“We have seen increased threats and harassment directed not just at drag performers who do library readings, but also.
