Bacon captioned the clip: “#DragBans are bad karma. Right now, drag performers and the LGBTQIA+ community need our help.”
The star from the movie "Footloose" told his fans to donate to the "Drag Defense Fund" of the ACLU. The goal of this fund is to raise money "to support the ACLU's LGBTQ+ rights work." He also told people to check out his own charity, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
At the end of the post is the phrase "#DragIsaRight."
Some states, like Florida and Tennessee, are making it illegal for drag shows to be performed in front of children because they are often rude and sexual.
Tennessee passed a law in February that makes it illegal for drag queen shows and other sexually explicit acts to happen in front of children or on public land where children may be. Breitbart News said that a federal judge has briefly put a stop to the law because it is "likely both unclear and too broad."
Several celebs have spoken out against the state's anti-grooming laws, including pop star Lizzo, who recently performed in Tennessee with former RuPaul's Drag Race contestants in defiance of the laws.
