Amidst a barrage of drag queen-related content directed at children, a small group of elected officials has ramped up efforts to fight back legislatively. This fledgling group of legislators received a boost on Tuesday when Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) threw his support behind the movement and announced he would vote in favor of a proposed ban on the practice.

The Western Journal’s Lexie Purdy wrote that the publication had reached out to every U.S. senator for comment on the issue. Of all 100 senators, only Marshall affirmed that he would vote in favor of a ban.

“What happened to the innocence of children?” Marshall added. “The hyper-sexualization and grooming of young children have become an obsession of the far-left in this country. Any respectful parent would never allow a child to watch, let alone participate in, pornographic drag shows. The tail has been wagging the dog for too long with this garbage, and the dog is about to bite back.”

Opposition to child attendance of drag shows reached new heights earlier this month when a group of conservative media figures, including Aldo Buttazzoni, Tayler Hansen, Cassady Campbell, and Isabella Riley, recorded a number of sexualized activities taking place at a “Drag Your Kids to Pride” event in Dallas, Texas.

The effort to expose the true nature of the Dallas event also featured several conservative protesters, many led by political commentator John Doyle and comedian Alex Stein, outside the bar.

Undercover videos recorded by the aforementioned group, along with clashes between protesters and attendees, quickly went viral on social media, bringing newfound attention to the sexualization of children at drag events.

Given the prevalence of these events, Texas state Rep. Bryan Slaton (R-2nd District) announced that he would introduce a bill that would ban child attendance of drag shows at the start of the next Texas legislative session. Marshall’s agreement with this premise marks the first time that a U.S. senator has joined these efforts.
