Drag shows for children appear to have become a regular institution in the United States over the last year, a phenomenon that has gained national attention and controversy.
However, as we have long documented here at Elizabeth Johnston Ministries, these “all ages” events are far from the only way that many in the LGBT community have sought to incorporate children into their ideological activism.
On top of the Drag Queen Story Hour trend that has been growing for years, children dressing up in drag themselves has also been gaining in popularity despite the obvious concerns involved with encouraging kids to imitate a form of performance art that is inextricably linked to the overtly sexual.
This is not a practice that should be normalized in any civilized society, and yet it appears to become more acceptable by the day.
The Blaze reports that the British iteration of well-known drag artist RuPaul’s DragCon festival will include not only drag events for children, but a drag show featuring children.
What’s more, the event is being sponsored by the British television series for preschoolers, Teletubbies.
The “Kids Fashion Show” is set for January 8 on the main stage.
“Hit them with your catwalk, kids,” one posting for the event reads, according to The Blaze.
The event will also feature multiple Drag Queen Story Time events throughout the three day conference as well as more than one Teletubbies Meet and Greet at the “Kid Zone,” according to the event website.
“DragCon is an all-ages, family friendly event and all are welcome at RuPaul’s DragCon UK. Kids 8 and under are free when accompanied by an adult with a ticket,” the website states.
It should be noted that the organizers of a recent drag show in the United States that came under fire for displaying highly vulgar performances featuring fake sexual organs and simulated sexual acts defended the show by claiming children had not been allowed…without their parents, at least.
The man behind the queen persona Kitty Demure, who has been an outspoken critic of incorporating children with drag culture, recently told Fox News’ Jesse Watters that parents who bring their kids to drag events “think they’re being inclusive.”
“They think that they are teaching them some kind of valuable lesson,” he said.
“What is the lesson to be learned to see a man dressed up, wearing a wig, and being sexual in front of your child? We used to arrest men like that,” he also asked.
Demure has been seen in a viral clip explaining that he has “no idea why you want drag queens to read books to your children.”
“What in the h*** has a drag queen ever done to make you have so much respect for them and admire them so much, other than put on make-up and jump on the floor and writhe around and do sexual things onstage?” he asks in the clip.
We might further posit, what has a drag queen done that would make you want to encourage your child to imitate their very suggestive and adult art form?
