Since 2015, Tennessee has enacted more anti-LGBTQIA+ laws than any other state in the country. The latest of these are Senate Bill 3 and House Bill 9 — two anti-LGBTQIA+ bills that ban all performances deemed male or female impersonation otherwise known as “drag” from taking place on any public property in the state, as well as in any location where people under 18 could be present.
