Kari Lake and Drag Queen controversy explained
It all started at the beginning of this month in Texas when Dallas gay bar’s “Drag the Kids to Pride” event, which was promoted as “a family-friendly drag show.” At the same time, conservative politicians were clearly blacking out about what they called the “sexual perversion” of children. In the video clip, which went viral on social media, encouraging all the outrage, the performers were dressed and the dancing didn’t appear overly sexual or indecent.
In the following outrage, Kari Lake took up to Twitter regarding the Drag Queens and posted, “They kicked God out of schools and welcomed the Drag Queens. They took down our Flag and changed it with a rainbow. They look to disarm Americans and militarize our rivals. Let’s bring back the basics: God, Guns and Glory.
“To make me be the phantom for political gain was just too much”
After which, Richard Stevan, who had been a famous Drag queen for years, in response to Kari’s post on Friday, he said that he and Kari used to be friends, but her recent post shows her hypocrisy. While on Friday evening posted pictures of Lake posing with him and another drag performer. The exact images, which are dated to be 2012 and 2014, are posted to Kari Lake’s social media.
He also posts some photos of Lake and him. And also puts down: “I’ve enacted for Kari’s birthday, I’ve performed in her home (with children present,) and I’ve performed for her at some of the bars in Phoenix. She would come to shows constantly. To make me be the phantom for political gain was just too much.” In a recent interview with News Channel, Stevens stated that he had performed as Marilyn Monroe in front of Lake’s daughter when she was around 9 or 10 Y/O at the time. And he has also performed inside Lake’s home.
So you can imagine that Lake’s social media posts criticizing drag were siren. He brought this all to the limelight when Lake crossed into the new target of conservative outrage: kids being exposed to drag queens. But The Lake campaign says she has never attended a drag show. “Richard’s allegations were full of lies,” she said in a statement emailed to me. “The event in query was a party at someone else’s house, and the performer was there as a Marilyn Monroe impersonator. It wasn’t a drag show, and the issue we’re talking about isn’t adults attending drag shows, either. The issue is activists sexualizing young children, and that must stop.”
