On Sunday, Central Alabama Pride hosted a drag show at Hi-Wire Brewing in Birmingham that was reportedly open to “all ages.”
Though the Facebook page for the event did not list any age requirement, one of the performers, who goes by the stage name Flap Jack, posted a video of the show in which he dances in a lion costume through the brewery and accepts a cash tip from a small child right after shaking his hips to a cheering crowd.
“Really sweet moment at the [Central Alabama Pride] drag brunch this afternoon,” Flap Jack tweeted of the video. “It was an all ages show, and I always love performing in this look from @alsoabouteve because it draws folks in whether they’re young or old. Drag is not a crime, y’all! 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️”
Another performer, stage name Fawn, can also be seen in the video wearing a leopard-print leotard and spandex leggings. The other advertised performers included Kam Kam, Victoria Taylor and Saylor Alexander.
Tickets for the event were $10 per person, and 15% of all Flagship beer sales went to benefit Central Alabama Pride, according to the event's Facebook page.
