9-Year-Old Boy Makes Headlines After His Drag Show Debut At LA Pride Parade


Nearly as disturbing as the growing epidemic of gender dysphoria among children is the “drag kid” trend in which young, mostly prepubescent boys are not only allowed but encouraged to dress up as flamboyant women.

One nine-year-old boy had the dubious privilege of making his drag debut at a Los Angeles’ “Pride Month” event back in June. 

Rather than offer loving guidance and protection from this hyper-sexualized “art form,” the parents of little Vincent Garcia allowed him to appear under his new alter ego, “DunkaShay Monroe,” in a bronze sequinned dress, green wig, silver sneakers and rainbow-striped socks.

Vincent’s mother, Elizabeth Leyva, told Metro News she hopes to set an example for other parents faced with a child who feels the need to express himself this way.

“My message to other parents is not to be afraid of letting your children show you who they are,” Leyva said. “People dismiss children a lot and tell them they don’t know what they want and are too young to understand – but they have their own minds, just like everyone else.”

“The worst thing you can do is shut them down and be small-minded,” she added. “At the end of the day, you should love and support your children 100 per cent, regardless of whether they want to be a doctor, a cop or a drag queen.”

Well, now, hold the phone! If “doctor, cop, and drag queen” aren’t two apples and an orange, nothing is! 

There is nothing inappropriate, confusing, or disturbing about a young child who wants to be a police officer or a doctor, people who work hard to help people and whose job description is entirely wholesome and easy for a young child to grasp. There is nothing about either job that goes entirely against our very biological makeup. 

Being a male who slaps on a dress and goes on to make a disgusting mockery of femininity is an entirely different animal, and to suggest otherwise is a serious problem. There is nothing appropriate about drag for young children. 

Leyva went on to share that Vincent began playing with her makeup and walking around their home in high heels at just two years old

Last I checked, two-year-olds do all kinds of ill-advised things. We don’t let them play in the toilet because they’re curious where the water goes!

Leyva also told Metro News that Vincent came to her a few years later to “come out,” though he was nervous to make such an announcement.

 “I reassured him that he could tell me absolutely anything. I wanted to know he was comfortable talking to me,” Leyva said. “He then told me that he thought he might be gay.”

In case you’re wondering how such a young child could already be so seriously confused about natural sexuality and gender, Leyva continues: “We have always been very open with our children and answered questions that they may have about the world, so Vincent knew about the LGBT community and what it means to be a part of it…”

There you have it, folks. This is exactly where the failure to shield your children from the pervasive sexual deviance in our culture leads.

“It’s no different to how other children put on a costume and play dress up,” Leyva also said. How sorely mistaken she is!

The Metro also states that Vincent wants to become a professional drag queen when he grows up, but Leyva encourages him to focus on schoolwork to “keep his options open” and has even promised him a sewing machine to make his own costumes if he earns good grades. Of course, knowing the state of most schools these days, Vincent is probably right at home there.

As for the few people in his circle who refuse to play along with this drag fixation, Metro News refers to any unsupportive behavior as “abuse,” which Vincent usually receives from adults.

“Whenever people are nasty, he stands up for himself but does it calmly and respectfully,” Leyva said. “He says to me that he thinks anybody who is bullying must not have been taught by their parents that if they can’t say anything nice, not to say anything at all.”

“He knows there will be times in his life when people don’t understand who he is,” she concluded. “We don’t live in a perfect world where everybody accepts that love is love, and you can’t help who you are.”

All kinds of people can’t help who they are because we live in a fallen world, but we don’t accept immorality just because the world is imperfect. The world is also full of caring people who love this little boy and want him to grow up healthy and with guidance that is solidly founded on good, wholesome values, not confusion. 

What a tragic indictment of our culture that little boys like Vincent are encouraged to pursue unnatural desires. Please pray for this deceived little boy.
