Delta State University (entrance)A small Mississippi university that advertised a drag queen show missed the mark by labeling it a “family-friendly” event, says a public policy analyst.

Delta State University, located in Cleveland, held a third-annual celebration of “LGBTQ History Month” earlier this month which included the first-ever drag show on the public school campus.

Brett Kittredge of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy says what caught his attention was an ad promoting a “family-friendly” event.

“Which is relatively contradictory to me and my idea of what family friendly is,” he tells OneNewsNow.

Delta State, a campus with approximately 3,800 students, is located in the impoverished Mississippi Delta.

Kittredge and MCPP shared a flyer advertising the Oct. 17 event that was presented by the DSU library, DSU Diversity Committee, DSU Office of Student Affairs, and the university’s art department, department of music, and division of languages and literature, among others.

Kittredge says the taxpaying public, the local community, and university alumni deserve to know what is happening on the university campus.
