The Drag Queen vs The State of Texas

Sometimes, joy, celebration, and community are the best tools we have to fight against hate. When the Texas Legislature attempted to criminalize drag in the state, one drag queen used those exact tools to mobilize her community. We’ll learn how they successfully fought back against the attempt to stifle not just their careers, but their modes of expression. Plus, we take a visit to a drag story hour in Brooklyn, New York to talk to the community of people joining forces to drown out the hate.  This episode we’re talking about building change in the LGBTQ community.  Learn more about how you can get involved at actblue.com/buildthechange or follow us on Instagram and TikTok.
