South Australian Senator correct to highlight concerns over ABC content for children

The Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) commends Senator Alex Antic for raising serious concerns over ‘our’ ABC exposing children to inappropriate content by way of a costumed drag queen reading a book to children during children’s TV time.

ACL’s National Director of Politics, Wendy Francis, said “No matter how you dress it up, drag queen culture is associated with adult entertainment. Parents of young children do not want them unwittingly exposed to adult concepts through the simple act of watching children’s TV programs.

“Not only does drag queen entertainment belong in an adult category, many women and girls are offended by the demeaning parody of women they believe occurs in Drag Queen entertainment.

“The ABC has statutory obligations under the Broadcasting Services (Australian Content and Children’s Television) Standards 2020 which includes that they must not broadcast any material that demeans any person or group on the basis of gender or sexual orientation.”

The ACL calls on the ABC to cease broadcasting inappropriate adult content to children and to abide by its statutory obligations.
