The City of Bloomington is allowing yet another PrideFest downtown. Pride month is over, calendars too difficult to navigate?
At least Normal had the sense to hold their drag show indoors and after 10:00 pm: https://blnnews.com/2023/06/19/free-drag-show/
Bloomington’s is outside at 7:30 pm and billed as “family friendly”. Why do the performers need families? Why do they want kids to attend?
If you go to the YouTube channel for the star of this show, many of the videos are age restricted. This show is not.
Tax dollars are being used to sponsor this event, that doesn’t include staff time and police. Are the others Woke? They missed what happened to Bud Light etc? Is the library holding drag queen story hour next?
