Seriously, San Francisco? What are we going to do with you? Even for you, this is seems like a bad call.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, San Francisco Mayor London Breed has decided to focus in on the issues that really matter to San Franciscans: homelessness, unaffordable housing, drugs, crime the economy —just kidding, it’s a drag laureate program that takes $35,000 in funding from the public library fund.
“The Drag Laureate role will receive $35,000 in an annual stipend. The funds will come from the San Francisco Public Library out of the two-year budget proposal put forward by the mayor this month,” DW reports.
“A group will be formed by various city agencies that will consist of city employees and members of the community to create the format of the program with the first person to fill the slot likely announced in the fall of this year,” DW continues.
“San Francisco’s commitment to inclusivity and the arts are the foundation for who we are as a city,” Breed stated. “Drag artists have helped pave the way for LGBTQ rights and representation across our city, and we must invest in programs that continue their legacies and create opportunities for the next generation of drag performers to thrive. I want to thank the drag community, Human Rights Commission, and Public Library for their work, and I look forward to crowning San Francisco’s first ever Drag Laureate this Fall.”
Oh, Ms. Breed —has the recall of Chesa Boudin taught us nothing?
