Uh, no.

According to a Fox News report, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis helped shut down a high school event called “Drag & Donuts” after local education department officials expressed concern.

From Fox News:

The event, originally scheduled to take place at Boone High School in Orlando, Florida, was set to feature drag queen “Momma” Ashley Rose,” according to a flyer from the school’s Queer and Ally Alliance Club.

The Rose Dynasty Foundation holds a “family friendly, charity based drag queen pageant” called the “Miss Rose Dynasty” annually, according to the organization’s website.

Ashley Rose’s foundation did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.

The “Drag & Donuts” event with Rose was canceled after a call from the DeSantis administration, according to a report from Florida’s Voice.

“As a result of a call from the Florida Department of Education today, the event has been canceled. The Department questioned whether the event was age and developmentally appropriate and indicated any administrator, teacher, or staff member in attendance may be investigated and jeopardize their professional license,” the statement said.

The school district released a statement in defense of the event.

“The event Donuts & Drag was not a drag show, but an opportunity for the students to hear a positive message of acceptance and love,” said a statement from the district.
