    Drag queens have been banned from performing at a Pride event in case they offend transgender people.

    Organisers of Free Pride Glasgow, which bills itself as an 'anti-commercialist' alternative to the Scottish city's main Pride event, have announced the controversial ban.

    Despite the fact that drag queens have been closely associated with Pride celebrations for most of their history, they will not be allowed to appear at the event next month in case they cause offence.

    Everyone offends everyone today. You wear blue and someone wearing green....is offended. You clear your throat in a manner someone doesn't like....they're offended. You pull a item off the shelf wrong in a supermarket.....someone is offended. Unreal....I give up. :rolleyes:


    Weren't drag queens around way before transgender people?? Hasn't Japanese Onnagata actors been around WAY before transgender people? Crazy.
