The U.S. State Department has contributed $20,600 in taxpayer money to finance workshops and “drag queen” theater performances for young students, including minors, at the Abraham Lincoln North American Ecuadorian Center in Cuenca.
The country’s currency is the U.S. dollar.
The State Department website notes that the grant, awarded Sept. 23, seeks to “promote diversity and inclusion.” To meet this condition, the cultural center must do “three workshops, 12 drag theater performances, and a two-minute documentary” by Aug. 31, 2023.
A drag queen may be defined as a man who dresses up in garish women’s clothes, typically wearing a colorful wig, ornate makeup, platform shoes, etc.
