The restaurant’s managers maintain that the drag shows it presents are suitable for children
Restaurant in Florida that hosts family friendlyas he describes them, drug shows appealed against the governor Ron DeSandis and this state of the USA asking not to implement the law that prohibits minors from attending such shows.
Hamburger Mary’s, an Orlando restaurant-bar that hosts drag shows and other events, appealed in federal court in Florida against the law that DeSandis upheld last week.
Act 1438 allows the state to fine or revoke the license to sell alcoholic beverages from any venue that allows minors to attend any type of performance that “contains nudity, depicts sexual behavior or specific sexual acts.”
“The law is not about the children, it is about the continued oppression of the LGBTQI+ community,” the owners of Hamburger Mary’s complained on Facebook.
In the same post, they attacked other policies of the Florida governor, such as the banning of some books and lessons in schools that refer to gender issues or racial discrimination in the US, asking “when will it stop?”
With their appeal they ask that the law not be implemented, considering that it violates the constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of speech.
“It prohibits speech based on the identity of the speaker,” the lawsuit states.
DeSandis, who is expected to announce this week his intention to seek the Republican nomination for the 2024 election, embraces strict policies in Florida that limit the rights of LGBTQI+ people.
