In a Facebook post yesterday, PBS announced that Sesame Street, its iconic children’s show, will feature Billy Porter, a homosexual actor known for his ostentatious cross-dressing, on an upcoming episode.
Porter is best known for his extravagant red carpet looks, typically donning ball gowns and drag queen-reminiscent makeup while not specifically dressing or identifying as a woman.
He plays an emcee named “Pray Tell” in the LGBT ballroom drama Pose and is slated to play the “fairy godmother” in an upcoming live-action remake of Cinderella, so naturally he’s just the sort of influence Sesame Street wants to expose impressionable young children to.
“Billy Porter bringing those fierce vibes to Sesame Street,” an announcement from Sesame Street declares, accompanied by photos of Porter on the classic set in his trademark tuxedo gown.
Unsurprisingly, the vast majority of the commenters on the post thus far have heaped up praises on the show for being so brave and “smashing gender norms” for their young viewers. Only a few outliers expressed a degree of trepidation about confusing such young children with a man in a flamboyant dress.
This progressive propaganda network masquerading as a public broadcaster has long been shoving pro-LGBT programming down our children’s throats, most recently with the gay “marriage” of a character on Arthur, another of its popular children’s shows.
Back in 2017, Sesame Street tweeted a “rainbow” of multicolored Muppets for “Pride Month,” declaring that it is “proud to support families of all shapes, sizes, and colors.”

Later that year, the show featured a song called “Anyone Can Play,” which declared that “some boys like to play dolls” and showed Grover, a male puppet character, in a dress.
Now, I’m confused. Aren’t leftists the same ones who will suggest that your boy who plays with dolls may in fact be a girl in a boy’s body? Do toys and clothes indicate gender or not? Pick one, people!
It is simply untenable for a children’s show to impose this such confusion on children. PBS has previously touted Fred Rogers as a symbol of a more “progressive concept of gender,” especially when the gentle, soft-spoken character was juxtaposed with other male TV characters of the time, such as pro-wrestler Hulk Hogan.
That’s all well and good, but did Mr. Rogers ever put on a dress?! I don’t think so!
The fact that PBS, NPR, and other supposedly nonpartisan public broadcasters receive millions in federal funding (also known as our tax dollars) each year makes their brazen promotion of the LGBT agenda all the more unbearable!
Lord, have mercy on this nation!
