Are Drag Shows a "Learning Tool" For Children?
Spectrum Street Epistemology in San Juan, Puerto Rico
Peter Boghossian engaged one woman and two men in San Juan, Puerto Rico with the claim, “Drag queens should be allowed to perform for children.”
Two of the participants are parents. One man suggested that viewing a drag show is an important learning tool for pre-teens in their exploration of the world. The group considers whether sexual elements of drag performances can be removed to create an appropriate experience for children.
Peter inquired where the line should be drawn regarding overt sexualization, noting documented experiences of children at drag shows. One man is more concerned about “men dressing as women” as legitimate content for children than the sexual elements in drag performance.
