City cancels children’s drag show, citing safety concerns

The town of Jasper, Indiana, along with the Dubois County Pride Committee, canceled their “Family Friendly Drag Show” for safety reasons after the event was shared by the Libs of Twitter account. Tik Tok.

An online advertisement for the June 24 event, which Libs of TikTok share, encouraged attendees to bring money for tips and emphasized that the event was for all ages. Despite the cancellation of the drag show, the Dubois County Pride in the Park event will continue as planned, featuring food trucks, a pool party, a circus and a glow dance party at a local park, according to an announcement Wednesday by Dubois County Pride.

“These professional performers can’t wait to put on a show full of pride for all of you,” read the ad for the drag show, shared by Libs of TikTok. “Tipping is not required, but is greatly appreciated by performers (drag is not cheap), so be sure to bring cash. This event is for ALL AGES.

The cancellation announcement cited safety issues but did not specify which ones.

Libs of TikTok shared a screenshot of the event on Twitter about two hours before it was canceled on Wednesday, quickly garnering more than 1,000 retweets.

“In Jasper Indiana, a pride event with a drag queen performance is advertised for all ages and they encourage kids to bring money to tip drag queens,” Libs of TikTok wrote.

The Dubois County Clerk was unaware of the event, but ordered The Daily Caller News Foundation to the city of DuBois, who shared an invitation to Pride in the Park but declined to comment further.
