DeSantis, citing a 1947 cross-dressing law, is seeking to revoke a restaurant’s liquor license after a video of children attending a drag brunch emerged

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has filed a lawsuit against a Miami restaurant that hosts a weekly brunch after children were seen at the event.

According at The Hill, the video was posted by LibsofTikTok, a right-wing social media account.

In the complaint obtained by the news agency, DeSantis alleged that R House violated state law and cited a 1947 state Supreme Court ruling that “men posing as women” in a “suggestive and indecent” manner constitutes a public nuisance.

To press conference On Wednesday, DeSantis said the state’s Department of Business and Occupational Regulation investigated the restaurant and found “not only were there minors there…the bar had a kids’ menu.”

Drag shows have become a target Republican lawmakers seeking to introduce anti-LGBTQ legislation not just in the state of Florida, but across the country. In June, Florida Representative Anthony Sabatini tweeted he would propose legislation that would make it a crime and end the parental rights of any adult who brings a child to these perverted sex shows.

The Hill reported that R House’s liquor license could be revoked if the complaint is successful.

Speaking with The Miami Herald, the restaurant said it hoped to resolve the incident and called it a “misunderstanding”.

R House and DeSantis did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
