Sports radio host and former ESPN personality Da Le Batard was joined by a pair of drag queens on his Draft Kings-sponsored program, The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, to defend the grooming of children in protest of Florida legislation that bars children from attending live, sexually explicit performances, including drag shows, which Le Batard says he’s a regular attendee of.
Dan Le Batard and Billy Corben were recently joined on his Miami-based sports talk show by fully-costumed drag queens “Karla Croqueta” and “Opal Am Rah,” who Le Batard, apparently a regular attendee at drag performances, described as two “Miami legends.”
“Very exciting, we’ve got a lot of sparkle in here. The scent in here just got a lot better,” Le Batard said as he introduced the drag queens to his audience, for the express purpose of defending the homosexual grooming of children.
“Well, you are, you’re a regular at the drag shows, Dan, aren’t you?” Corben said.
“At the palace?” responded Le Batard. “I went a couple of weeks ago with John Amaechi” (a gay former NBA player), he said, describing the homosexually-charged performances as “great fun,” before joining Corben and the drag queens in slamming the Florida Legislature for barring children from the sexually-charged performances.
In a video clip of the segment posted to Twitter by the @LeBatardShow account, bearded drag queen “Karla Croqueta” openly admits that his performances are meant to expose children to homosexuality and his alternative lifestyle and that he feels justified in doing so because when he was a child, he “didn’t know what a queer person looked like.”
“Here I am, I finally have this opportunity to be loud, authentic, queer, and I have to censor myself,” he went on, complaining about having to “censor” himself in front of children by not performing homosexual acts in front of them.
“I finally have this opportunity to be loud, authentic and queer, and I have to censor myself — all because the state that I live in is deeming my existence to be illegal.” – Miami drag legend, Karla Croqueta with real talk on Florida’s anti-LGBTQ+ legislation. #BecauseMiami

The legislation that Le Batard and company were protesting on the program is Florida Senate Bill 1438, a bill that bars the admission of children to “adult live performances,” which it defines as “a presentation that depicts or simulates nudity, sexual conduct, or specific sexual activities.”
The bill was crafted to combat the rise in drag shows geared towards children, in which grown men dress as caricatures of women, and sometimes demons, to perform simulated sex acts in front of or even with children and at times expose themselves to them.
In several instances, drag queens who’ve deliberately performed in front of children or have attended “drag queen story hour” events have been outed as convicted child sex predators.
