Judge Issues Injunction Against Texas Sex Oriented Performance Bill
A federal judge has struck down a new Texas law that prohibits "sexually oriented performances" in front of minors.
LGBTQ advocates said the law was really meant to target drag shows, and today a federal judge called it an "unconstitutional restriction on speech."
It would have slapped civil penalties on businesses that host sexually-oriented performances. The performers could have faced criminal charges. The ruling says that drag shows are considered 'expressive conduct' that should be protected by First Amendment
