Last week, the University of Nebraska hosted Caldwell Tidicue, also known as “Bob the Drag Queen,” for an event in its Swanson Auditorium. Tidicue, 36, traveled to Nebraska to perform a stand up act and Q&A session for the university and the public.
Tidicue has been in the HBO series “We’re Here”, which follows three drag queens as they journey across rural America, supposedly “spreading love and connection through the art of drag” according to the show’s description.
The singer Madonna recently announced that Bob the Drag Queen will be joining her at a show in Nashville, TN to protest anti-LGBTQ laws in the home of country music. The pop singer said, “Anyone with half a brain knows not to f— with a drag queen. Bob and I will see you from the stage in Nashville where we will celebrate the beauty that is the queer community”.
The fact that anyone would want to see Bob the Drag Queen perform at University of Nebraska or in Nashville is absurd. Apparently, it’s a special talent for a man to dress up like a woman and charge attendees to watch the spectacle.
