We need our allies in this fight.

Trans people and drag artists have always been at the forefront of fighting for LGBTQ+ rights, and the same thing is happening once again in 2023. With hundreds of new pieces of transphobic and anti-drag legislation being introduced, voted on, and even passed by conservative politicians, high-profile stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race are fighting back and urging those who call themselves “allies” to take a firm stand in defense of the LGBTQ+ community.

Last week, Tennessee became the first state in the US to pass a bill with significant restrictions to drag shows. Unfortunately, it seems like this is only the beginning. Hundreds of similar bills are also being brought up in other states, and indirect restrictions on drag performances already seem to be happening in states like Florida.

Over the weekend, CPAC speaker Michael Knowles declared that “transgenderism must be eradicated,” a dangerously transphobic call-to-action that has ignited fury and fears within the LGBTQ+ community. Even though some queer people are already starting to fight back, many are also calling upon our allies to stand with us in this fight.

Scroll through to see how RuPaul’s Drag Racequeens are reacting to the anti-trans and anti-drag bills being pushed by conservative politicians. For more information about these pieces of legislation and how to fight against them, you can visit this resource page from the ACLU.
