Sun 10 May 2009 In: International News View at Wayback

A new website aimed at drag queens and their fans has come under fire from a family group who are worried that the site normalises gay sex and dressing in drag. launched last week, enabling its users to dress their characters, take part in fashion competitions, visit virtual bars, and interact in a dating section, reports There is no age limit on the site, although users must be over 18 to join the dating forums. This has led to criticism from parents' group Parentkind, who are concerned that children as young as seven are using the site. "The danger of this game is that it may give young children a state of mind where they see sex operations, dressing in drag and casual and gay sex as normal," said Parentkind's Andy Hibberd. But a representative of the website responded: "Parents need not worry about children playing on our website. It is all harmless fun and teaches children about the real world."
