Here We Go: Indiana Town Cancels So-called ‘Family-Friendly’ Drag Show After Social Media Uproar

A town in Indiana has canceled its “family-friendly” drag show after the event drew scorn on social media.

The event, “Pride in the Park,” was organized by the Dubois County Pride committee and was slated to take place on June 24 in Jasper, Indiana. News of the show, which was “open for all ages,” was first shared by the viral Twitter account “Libs of TikTok.”

“These professional entertainers can not [sic] wait to put on a pride-filled show for you all,” read an advertisement for the event. “Tips are not required, but are greatly appreciated by the entertainers (Drag is not cheap) so make sure to bring some cash.”

The flyer encouraged patrons to “stick around” after the show to take pictures with “the girls.”

At the time of publication, the Libs of TikTok post had garnered more than 3,000 “likes” and over 1,000 retweets. So on Wednesday, seemingly in response to the negative attention it garnered, the city canceled the event altogether.
