Tennessee Tech Investigating On-Campus Child Drag Show

Sep 12, 2022 | Political News

After a video depicting children participating in an on-campus drag show was widely shared around the internet, Tennessee Tech University President Phil Oldham said he was offended, and that the school is investigating.

The video was first posted to Twitter by Landon Starbuck, wife of former Tennessee congressional candidate Robby Starbuck.

“Tennessee Tech University hosted a drag show that had little kids handing cash to the drag queen who was performing a dance clearly meant to mock Christians,” she said. “Every parent who pays to send their kids to [Tennessee Tech] deserves to know that this is what they’re allowing on campus.”

Starbuck later encouraged her followers to send a respectful email to Oldham to express their discontent with the event.
