upcoming greatest hits tour, including a date at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.She said she was “Especially Happy to come to Nashville to celebrate Drag and the Trans community!!”She continued, “The oppression of the LGBTQ+ is not only unacceptable and inhumane; it’s creating an unsafe environment; making America a dangerous place for our most vulnerable citizens, especially trans women of color.“Also, these so-called laws to protect.
our children are unfounded and pathetic. Anyone with half a brain knows not to f*ck with a drag queen. Bob and I will see you from the stage in Nashville where we will celebrate the beauty that is the Queer community!”A post shared by Madonna (@madonna)Drag Race winner Bob the Drag Queen was previously announced as the opening act for Madonna’s Celebration tour.Legislation (SB 3) signed by Tennessee Governor Bill Lee defines drag as an “adult cabaret performance”.
It prohibits “performance in a location other than an adult cabaret that features topless dancers, go-go dancers, exotic dancers, strippers, male or female impersonators who provide entertainment that appeals to a prurient interest, or similar entertainers, regardless of whether or not performed for consideration.”Governor Lee said he was happy to sign the bill as it protects minors from “potentially [being] exposed to sexualized entertainment, to obscenity.”Does having Bob the Drag Queen as Madonna’s support act now break the law in the state?
We guess we will find out in December.A post shared by Bob/ Caldwell Tidicue (@bobthedragqueen)It should be noted that several acts, including Sheryl Crow, Hozier, and several drag queens, took part in the recent Love Rising benefit at the Bridgestone Arena.
