The vast majority of Brits would oppose a drag ban similar to the one soon to be implemented in Tennessee, a new survey has found.

More in Common, the group that conducted the polling, asked 2,018 respondents in the UK: “Several states in the United States have proposed legislation to ban public ‘Drag Shows’, a form of entertainment which involves performers impersonating men or women. Would you support such a ban in the United Kingdom?”

Those surveyed supported a range of the country’s political parties and their ages varied from Gen Z to the Silent Gen.

Across all of the groups, 62 per cent said they would not support a ban on drag performances.

Just 20 per cent said they would support a ban, while a further 19 per cent were unsure.

When it came to how people of different age groups would react to a drag ban, those aged 41 to 55 were most likely to oppose one (70 per cent) and those aged 25 to 40 were most likely to support one (24 per cent).

Tennessee’s anti-drag bill goes into effect 1 April

Tennessee recently became the first to ban drag shows from taking place in public spaces and/or places where minors may be present.

Similar anti-drag bills have been introduced in at least 14 other states, including Arizona, Oklahoma and Kentucky.

The language used varies from bill to bill, with Tennessee’s not explicitly mentioning the “drag shows”.

Instead, it defines “adult cabaret” as “adult-oriented performances” that include “male and female impersonators” which should not take place where minors could be present.
