Last week, I exposed an all-ages drag show hosted on Tennessee Tech University’s campus at their theatre, “Backdoor Playhouse”. It quickly went viral due to the religious mockery on display coupled with the fact that children were not only in the audience but enticed to hand the performer dollar bills as he eventually undressed to a corset and stockings.
When word got around to Tennessee Tech’s President, Phil Oldham, he swiftly issued a public statement. An excerpt from the statement reads:
“I do not feel the activities in the video represent Tech’s values, and I do not condone explicit activity where minors are present. I also am offended by disparaging mockery toward any religious group. To be clear, this was not a university-sponsored event. No university funds were used."
