The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –
On September 25th, The Big Chill & Grill in Chattanooga hosted a drag show that was billed as “all-ages” where children could be seen putting dollar bills into Drag Queen’s costumes.
This is the third event of Chattanooga Pride Week to either be promoted specifically for children, or to be billed as “All-Ages”. This particular event was called “Brunch with the Dolls.”
The Big Grill & Chill also hosted Drag Bingo for all-ages on September 26th.

Several more “all-ages” Drag events are still coming up as part of Chattanooga’s Pride Week.
• September 28th – Yoga with Jimmy (all-ages) at The Hunter Museum Terrace
• September 29th – Block Party (all-ages) at Moxy Downtown
• October 2nd – Pride Festival (all-ages) at Ross’s Landing
• October 2nd – Pride After Party (all-ages) at Mellow Mushroom
One Instagram commenter asked, “Why involve children?”
Another commenter wrote, “I need to see the arrests of the adults that drove them there, the business owner, and the so-called ‘Dolls’ too.”
Yet another commenter wrote, “Why??? Just why? Kids do NOT need to exposed to this. This is so ridiculous and out of hand!!! It needs to stop!”
As an addition to our first story we posted about the events surrounding Chattanooga’s Pride Week titled “Chattanooga’s WanderLinger Brewing Company Promotes “Wildly Inappropriate” Drag Show For Kids”, we posted a survey on social media asking if Tennessee’s elected officials should be held accountable for not enforcing laws meant to protect children.
At the time of publication of this article 100 percent of respondents say YES and ZERO percent of respondents say NO.
