LGBT-Themed Converse Campaign Features 11-Year-Old “Drag Kid.” Boycott?


The glorification of gender-confused children is now being used so major shoe companies can profit off their mental illness.

This time, Converse has made an 11-year-old “drag kid” known as “Desmond Is Amazing” the face of their new line of shoes aimed at the “celebration” of the LGBT culture.

The new campaign features six people of varying sexual orientations, but the spotlight is primarily on young Desmond.

On the Converse website, Desmond is the center of attention in an overly flamboyant outfit with matching makeup.  In the picture, he strikes a dance pose while the caption reads, “There is no normal.”

Converse tweeted on Monday, “We’re happy to launch our Pride Collection, partnering with six individuals connected to the LGBTQ+ community who show the power of expressing one’s true self.”

Remember, it is only powerful to express one’s true self as long as it’s compatible with the mainstream progressive ideals permeating America.

It is very disturbing that Desmond’s parents allow him to continue to be exploited in this way.  Not only is Desmond Napoles a very confused child without meaningful parental guidance, but he is also autistic.  His parents claim that his “drag performances” actually help Desmond “cope with his disability.”

To make matters even worse, it has been all but confirmed by evidence and his parent’s own comments that they use the money he makes towards supporting their family. In short, they exploit their child as a means of income.

Desmond’s rise to fame has been a sad one. In 2015, he was seen dancing in the NYC Pride Parade and the photos of this young boy in drag went viral.  As a result, he was invited to appear on Good Morning America.  As part of his appearance, he danced as a drag queen and was joined by three adult drag queens.

At eight years old.

Last year, videos came out showing Desmond performing at gay bars in Brooklyn and San Francisco while adult men showered him with dollar bills.

Can you imagine the outrage if this had been a young girl dancing provocatively for grown men while they threw money at him?

Allowing your child to dress up and perform as a drag queen opens the door for them to be exposed to all manner of nefarious characters, such as infamous 90s “club kid” Michael Alig. Alig was incarcerated for 17 years for killing and dismembering a fellow clubber and drug dealer.  Nonetheless, Desmond and his mother appeared in a video interview with Alig in which Desmond told Alig he was the boy’s idol. Sounds like good company for an 11-year-old boy.

Christians have been complacent for too long, my friends.  This kind of treatment of a child should not even be thinkable—let alone celebrated—and yet here we are.

Not only is this allowed, but Desmond and his family are making money off of it.  Christians need to reconsider any support of companies who promote child abuse like this.

Are you ready for a boycott?
