Alyssa Edwards: "I Hate This Is My State" After Texas Proposed To Ban Kids From Drag Shows

"I believe that my drag is a form of a superhero power. Instead of a cape and a leotard, it's a wig and a rhinestone gown."

RuPaul’s Drag Race icon, Alyssa Edwards, had some choice words for lawmakers in her home state of Texas regarding the proposed ban to keep kids from drag shows.

“Children’s very first teacher and role model will be their parents. It is their parents’ decision on what form of entertainment they subject them to.”

Texas *Used To Be* Proud:

Alyssa sat down with TMZ for an exclusive interview (just two weeks after the Uvalde massacre) to discuss the state representative’s immediate response and call of action after a video surfaced online of a family (including young kids) enjoying a show at a drag bar in Texas.

“What a sad day- a sad day for someone like myself who believes in art and entertainment that can inspire, that can enlighten, that can encourage.”

“I hate this is my state.”

“I’ve always been proud to represent Texas. I’ve always held strong to my roots. I’m very proud to say I’m from Mesquite and that I went to West Mesquite’s Baptist Church, so I’m taken back at this very moment.”

Alyssa questioned Texas lawmakers’ priorities… being that a video of kids attending a drag show (with their parents) infuriated lawmakers into action rather than the mass shooting that left 19 kids and 2 teachers dead.
