According to PM:

Beer brand Yuengling is reportedly sponsoring a drag show for all ages in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to celebrate Pride month.

“Need your drag fix before our iconic Musikfest Drag Show?” the festival’s Facebook page wrote on June 12th. “Well, the queens return to Musikfest Cafe pres. by Yuengling on June 30th!”

“Draggin’ with the Divas is a drag show featuring music performed by some of our favorite Queens covering Queens. Hosted by Elektra Fearce St. James,” the event’s page states.

Musikfest is selling tickets to the event through ArtsQuest, a nonprofit based in Bethlehem “providing access to art, culture and educational programs for the diverse residents of the Lehigh Valley and others who seek access to our community.”

ArtsQuest’s ticket policies state that “all persons entering a venue, including babies in arms, must have a ticket.” It also states that “attendance of children under 2 years of age may not be recommended for some performances.” 

Tim Pool highlighted that the show allowed babies to attend during a show on Wednesday, saying that a member notified him of the event. After some digging, he found the venue’s question and answer page and confirmed that the event is “family-friendly.”

In a Twitter post, Pool highlighted the portion that says “including babies in arms.”
