North Carolina North Carolina tops a new list of states with the most attacks against drag events this year, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) announced Wednesday. The report, released In the wake of last week's mass shooting at a Colorado Springs LGBTQ bar that left five people dead and 18 others injured, shows North Carolina tied with Texas for the most anti-drag protests, threats and attacks in the nation. Each state has recorded 10 incidents this year. Although many metro areas across the country are often safer for the LGBTQ community, the Triangle has been the site of multiple anti-drag attacks this year.
