Does Drag Harm Children?

There is no evidence to suggest that exposure to drag harms children. Many children enjoy drag performances and find them entertaining and educational.

Children exposed to drag performers can learn valuable lessons about self-expression, diversity, and acceptance of others. Drag performances often showcase a wide range of creative talents, from singing and dancing to comedy and theatre, which can inspire children to explore their artistic interests. Drag Academy’s Story Time is a great way to promote literacy among children.

Exposure to drag artists can help children understand that there is no "right" way to express one's gender identity and that everyone deserves to be accepted and respected for who they are.

It is important to note that some people may have negative attitudes toward drag or may not consider it appropriate for children, but these attitudes are not based on evidence. Biases or stereotypes may influence them. Ultimately, parents and caregivers should decide what is appropriate for their children based on their own values and beliefs.
