It’s as if her name was a premonition – Marcia Gay Harden has three children and all three identify as part of LGBTQ community.

Harden’s children, Eulala, 24, and twins Julitta and Hudson, 19, “teach her every day,” she said. 

While at Drag Isn’t Dangerous: A Digital FundraiserHarden explained to the audience that her “children are all queer. My eldest child is non-binary. My son is gay. My youngest is fluid,” and that was why she was participating at the event.

Her involvement in the Los Angeles event follows the decisions that some states made earlier this year to ban drag shows and performances in fear of harming minors.

Tennessee was the first state to pass an anti-drag bill in February, limiting drag shows by not allowing them to perform in public spaces and in the presence of minors. 

Although Tennessee was the first state to pass a bill, Arizona, Arkansas, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia are also considering bills targeting drag shows. 

In Harden’s Instagram post promoting the fundraiser, she wrote, “Our nation, our neighbors, our children, artists, our singers, our dancers, our better leaders, ceo’s, writers, spiritual leaders, basically our humanity. Gay is here to stay. Drag is here to stay.”

Harden has received numerous accolades including an Oscar, two Academy Awards and three Primetime Emmies.
