Tennessee's Drag Ban Found Unconstitutional
Some good news as PRIDE month begins across the United States. A Trump-appointed federal judge has ruled that Tennessee’s first-in-the-nation law banning drag in public spaces is unconstitutional.
What does this mean?
GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis described Tennessee’s drag ban as a “malignant throwback to a dark and shameful time” in US history.
“This year Tennessee has led the way on indefensible and discriminatory anti-LGBTQ legislation, and draconian laws are rightfully being scrutinised,” she said.
“This ruling is a turning point and we will not go back. Every anti-LGBTQ elected official is on notice that these baseless laws will not stand and that our constitutional freedom of speech and expression protects everyone and propels our culture forward.”
Thank you Sarah! This is the reason why we celebrate PRIDE!
