GOP Legislator Steps Up To Stop Jackson “Family-Friendly Drag Show”

Oct 7, 2022 | Political News

Lawmakers in Madison County of members of the First United Methodist Church have filed a request for injunction against the city of Jackson, TN to suspend the portion of a Jackson Pride event this weekend that includes a “family-friendly drag show.”

The announcement for the event, scheduled for this Saturday from 11AM – 10PM Central time at the Carl Perkins Civic Center, listed the “family-friendly drag show” as part of the agenda.

Republican Representatives Chris Todd (R-Madison County-District 73) along with Senator Ed Jackson (R-Jackson-District 27) are leading the effort to stop the all-ages drag show.

Todd has publicly spoken against the event and is now challenging it on a legal basis.
