A Missouri Republican state representative has lawmaker filed a bill to prohibit certain drag shows that could be viewed by minors.
Rep. Ben Baker wants to ban so-called “adult cabaret performances” from public property or in any location where it could be viewed by children.
Violators of the bill would be subject to a misdemeanor for a first offense.
Subsequent offenders would be subject to a felony.
The bill comes amid high-profile debates over Christmas-themed drag show performances across the state.
