This was written by a Friend of McHenry County Blog before the Village of Lake in the Hills capitulated to Uprising Bakery as a result of the intervention by the ACLU:
While the Village of Lake in the Hills has asked the bakery owner to cancel the events, you can see the Drag Show marketed to children has not been.
We know who “Jakki Love” is and can find other events he has run; we have researched “BooBoo Kitty” and “Horchata” and can’t find those performers’ names anywhere. However, if you research for yourself, you may find some are very similar. It makes you wonder.
These are the questions that we, as a community, would like to be answered either by “Jakki Love,” “Horchata,” “Boo Boo Kitty,” or owner Corrina Sac. If they have nothing to hide, these should be easy to answer:
- Why would Drag Queens want an audience of Children?
- What are the performers’ real names or even actual performers’ names?
- Why is this event explicitly marketed to children?
- How can we know beyond a reasonable doubt that the word given to the police will remain valid and that there will be no nudity or sexually explicit content? As a recent performance on June 22 called for ‘all ages’ yet showed ‘mature content’ and supported ‘underage divas’?
