According to a new poll, most adults said they oppose laws restricting drag shows or performances as Republicans in several states push to block the shows from being seen by children.
The results of the poll show 58 percent of respondents said they oppose laws restricting the performances, while 39 percent said they support them. Democrats are the most likely to oppose such laws, with almost three-quarters of them saying they are opposed, but 57 percent of independents and 37 percent of Republicans also said they do not support them.
In addition, 54% of Americans oppose a proposed bill which criminalizes gender transition-related medical care for minors. Democrats (68%) and independents (56%) drive opposition to such legislation. Republicans (63%) bolster support for criminalizing gender transition-related medical care for minors. 43% of Americans, overall, support this legislation.
Tennessee became the first state in the country earlier this month to prohibit what the state law calls “adult cabaret performances” from happening within 1,000 feet of schools, public parks or places of worship. Republicans have introduced bills to restrict drag performances in more than a dozen other states.
