Bill would ban ‘indecent’ school events in South Dakota after SDSU drag show

Thirteen representatives and four senators introduced legislation Tuesday that would ban events like the recent drag show held at South Dakota State University from ever happening again.

House Bill 1116 prohibits “the use of government resources to host obscene or lewd content,” according to the title. The bill specifically prohibits the Board of Regents, the Board of Technical Education, institutions under their control, state agencies or institutions under state control, and public school districts from authorizing, spending money, or using state property to develop, implement, facilitate, host, promote, or fund any ‘lewd or lascivious content’.

Such content would include any specific sexual activity, anatomical areas, nude or semi-nude adults, and adults removing their clothing for the entertainment of one or more people.
