Many conservatives were not happy with a neighbourhood’s decision to hire a drag queen for the role of one of “Three Wise Men” in the January 5th Epiphany parade, EuroNews reports.
Actress Roma Calderon and female hip-hop artist Dnoe Lamis were chosen to play the other two kings.
The all-female float was proposed by the local LGBTQ organisation Orgullo Vallekano and approved Madrid’s left-wing mayor’s office.
But not everyone was happy with the decision. Conservative politicians from the People’s Party (PP) and Ciudadanos threatened to take legal action.

Conservative in Spain has a big problem, if they in their right mind need to go to legal actions because a drag queen participates in Three Kings Parade. They should instead focusing on their job, instead of practising homophobia in the Spanish legal system.
