Some bills ban performances by male and female performers who dress as female characters in highly exaggerated makeup and costumes. That ban is contained in a bill in the State of Montana. Tennessee enacted a similar law last February, albeit temporarily blocked by a judge.

Dee Snider has avoided exaggerated makeup and costumes for ten years now. However, due to the silliness of these bans, he would like to re-enact them in some performances. In a tweet, he stated that “the bullying minority is getting away with murder and it is time for the true majority to start pushing back… hard!”.

In an interview, the rocker explained that if these new laws were approved, his group could no longer perform with lipstick, nail polish, and makeup. Snider is a proud supporter of freedom of expression at all levels.

He thinks that these bills are somehow related to him and a too liberal culture. In fact, some people demonstrated a strong disagreement with his ways of dressing in the ’70s and ’80s.
