Florida is one of many states that has passed various bills aimed at LGBTQ+ citizens. According to CBS News, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a number of bills last week directly impacting LGBTQ+ Floridians. Among them was a ban on minors from attending drag shows. Since Welcome to Rockville did not have any age restrictions, there’s a good chance a number of people under 18 were in attendance for Tool’s set.
As of publishing, there is no report on whether Keenan may be charged for his drag performance.
