Gov. DeSantis Uses 1947 Court Ruling To Go After Miami Drag Show – By Mary Papenfuss (Huffpost) / July 29, 2022

Activists fear the Republican’s step is the latest in an all-out war on drag shows and trans people.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is citing a 75-year-old court ruling to go after a Miami drag show in an attempt to shut it down.

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation filed an administrative complaint for disorderly conduct against R House restaurant, citing the state Supreme Court ruling against “men impersonating women.”

DeSantis said at a news conference Wednesday that a video taken in the restaurant shows a child walking with a drag performer dressed in “lingerie.”
