We reported earlier this evening that Carnival Cruise lines allegedly sent an email to passengers on its upcoming “Drag Stars at Sea” cruise, notifying them that drag would be banned on the drag cruise. That email has since been confirmed by the operator of the drag cruise segment of the larger Carnival cruise.
For the sake of the children, Carnival explained earlier, it just had to ban passengers from dressing up in drag during the “drag cruise.” The drag cruise was a sub-section of a larger “family” cruise that will include children. But of course. if drag is such a threat to children, then why book the cruises simultaneously at all?
Well, it seems Carnival wasn’t giving us the whole explanation for why they were banning drag on a drag cruise.
You see, it wasn’t about the kids, Carnival is now saying. Carnival was simply enforcing it’s super-duper-double-secret post September 11 anti-terrorism policy against drag.
America Blog, John Aravosis: “Carnival ban on drag during drag cruise is not anti-gay, it’s cuz of 9/11.”
Avec toutes ces drag queens en burqa sur les navires de croisière, il faut se méfier…
