Hyatt Slammed for Allowing Kids at Drag Queen Show

Sexual Performances. Underage Children in Audience.

Revoked. The Hyatt Regency Miami’s alcohol license after one of its facilities hosted “A Drag Queen Christmas” with minors present in the audience. 

The state’s business department accused the facility of several violations, including a prohibition of “lascivious exhibition” before people younger than 16.

Performers were “wearing sexually suggesting clothing and prosthetic female genitalia,” as well as simulating masturbation. 

Disorderly conduct, “unlawful exposure of sexual organs” — a first-degree misdemeanor, a crime if done in a “vulgar or indecent manner.”

First-degree misdemeanors, in Florida, are generally punishable by up to a year in jail.

The Department of Business and Professional Regulation filed a 17-page complaint Tuesday against the show’s venue, the James L. Knight Center, which is affiliated with Hyatt.
