An actress in the long-running TV show “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” advocated allowing drag queens to perform for children.
“Gay is here to stay,” claimed actress Marcia Gay Harden during a weekend fundraiser. “Drag is here to stay. Donate what you can, and join us in spreading the love.”
Page Six further reported:
All three of Marcia Gay Harden’s children are queer.
The Oscar winner, 63, felt compelled to share the revelation during the “Drag Isn’t Dangerous: A Digital Fundraiser” live telethon over the weekend.
“What drives me is because it’s right, and what’s happening right now is wrong,” Harden, 63, told co-host Adam Shankman, according to People. “What drives me is — my children are all queer.
“My eldest child is non-binary. My son is gay. My youngest is fluid,” she continued. “And you know, they are my kids, and they teach me every day.”
The actress shares Eulala, 24, and 19-year-old twins Julitta and Hudson with her ex-husband, director Thaddaeus Scheel, 58.
Sunday’s star-studded event in Los Angeles was held in response to state lawmakers’ recent attempts to ban drag shows and performances, which they insist are unsafe for minors.
“This is so fear-based, and it’s spreading that kind of fear and hatred among other people,” Harden said of the controversial legislation. “I believe this country will fight that.”
The “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star went on to share a series of photos from the broadcast via Instagram and captioned them, “The only thing dangerous about drag is how hot these Queens are!”
She encouraged her followers to contribute to the fundraiser in support of the LGBTQIA+ community, “which basically means in support of all of us!
“Our nation, our neighbors, our children, artists, our singers, our dancers, our better leaders, ceo’s [sic], writers, spiritual leaders, basically our humanity,” she wrote.
“Gay is here to stay. Drag is here to stay. Donate what you can, and join us in spreading the love.”
