Westfield Sydney, together with Byron Bay Cookies, is set to host their first live drag show in preparation for Sydney’s 40th Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. The free public event, titled “Life’s a Drag,” will be held at midday on March 2, at Pitt Street Mall, Sydney. Westfield’s website and newsletter invites shoppers to:
Join host, Maxi Shield and her Queens and celebrate Sydney’s true colours, as they entertain you at Westfield Sydney’s first drag show.
The group behind You’re Teaching Our Children What? has encouraged parents to contact Westfield Sydney and voice your disapproval. A post on their website states:
Our message to Westfield: Stick to retailing and steer clear of gender ideology. Parents say no to exposing kids to this ideology in their city and ask Westfield: Is it SAFE to bring our kids into your shopping centres, or will they continue to be exposed to adult entertainment?
