Grammy-winning singer Lizzo took a stand against a controversial Tennessee law aimed at protecting children from sexually explicit “adult cabaret” performances, also known as drag shows. During her all-ages concert in Knoxville, Lizzo featured a group of drag queens, including alumni of Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and spoke out against canceling her shows in Tennessee. “Their reason was valid, but why would I not come to the people who need to hear this message the most?” she said. The law, which bans adults from impersonating the opposite sex in public or near where children could see it while appealing to prurient interests, has sparked debate and legal challenges. While some lawmakers argue that sexually explicit drag shows are not appropriate for children, others believe the law is too vague and could infringe on First Amendment rights. Lizzo believes in creating a safe space for celebrating differences and hopes to inspire others to stand up for their rights.
