Speaking to the Herald, one 60-year-old woman had words for the Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s complaint against Plaza Live. “I’m almost 60 and it was my first drag show. I had a blast. I thought it was hilarious,” Orlando resident Ann Berendzen said. “Every one of the accusations is false. They’re not exaggerated. They are completely false. It’s gross.”

That the undercover agents ultimately concurred that no “lewd acts” were performed at “A Drag Queen Christmas” show is beside the point: Florida sent state agents to target and surveil LGBTQ performers, and is now attempting to censor and punish their speech.
