MIAMI, FL – Gov. Ron DeSantis means what he says about venues in Florida that allow children in the audience while men (aka drag queens) twerk in skimpy attire and lipstick.
“A Drag Queen Christmas” performed Dec. 27, 2022, at the James L. Knight Center, which is reportedly connected to the Hyatt Regency Miami will find their license on the chopping block.
Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration is revoking the Hyatt Regency Miami’s alcohol license for hosting a “sexually explicit show with children present,” according to governor’s office Tuesday, as reported in Florida’s Voice.
The article noted, the administrative complaint said minors younger than 16 years of age were at the show where “performers appeared on stage wearing sexually suggestive clothing and prosthetic female genitalia.”

The drag queen holiday show allowed minors if they were accompanied by an adult.
Now, that was the wrong decision. Here comes the deserving consequence. Ouch.
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation is revoking the venue’s license for the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages.
Appears the customers will be sipping seltzer water or soda pop for a while. Bartender, mix me a lemonade.
“Sexually explicit content is not appropriate to display to children and doing so violates Florida law. Governor DeSantis stands up for the innocence of children in the classroom and throughout Florida,” said Bryan Griffin, press secretary for DeSantis.

The complaint alleged the drag queen performers engaged in “acts of simulated sexual activity, and lewd, vulgar, and indecent displays” that included:
- Performers forcibly penetrating or rubbing exposed prosthetic female breasts against faces of audience members
- Intentionally exposing performers’ prosthetic female breasts and genitalia to the audience
- Intentionally exposing performers’ buttocks to the audience
- Simulating masturbation through performers’ digitally penetrating prosthetic female genital
- Graphic depictions of childbirth and/or abortion
Yō. Team DeSantis is defending and protecting children.
Just as Jim Croce sang:
Yeah, you don’t tug on Superman’s cape
You don’t spit into the wind
You don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger
And you don’t mess around with Slim
