An undercover video released by guerilla journalism group Project Veritas shows a high school dean bragging about handing out sex toys and discussed “queer” sex with high school students as part of the school’s “affirming sex education.”
The Francis W. Parker School, a private K-12 school in Chicago, has responded to the release of the undercover video and claims that dean of Students Joseph Bruno was taken out of context when he made the comments to what he believed was a fellow educator.
In the undercover video, Bruno can be heard saying that during pride group, an LGBT resource center visits classrooms and “[passes] around butt-plugs and dildos to my students” and “[talks] about queer sex, using lube versus using spit.”
“They’re just, like, passing around dildos and butt-plugs. The kids are just playing with ‘em, looking at ‘em. … They’re like, ‘How does this butt-plug work? How do we do like, how does this work?’ That’s a really cool part of my job,” Bruno can be heard saying.

“They’re like, ‘How does this butt plug work? How do we do — like, how does this work?’” he also said.
“And everybody’s cool with that? The butt plugs and dildos? No big complaints?” Project Veritas’ journalist asked.
Bruno replied that there were no complaints, offering “It’s queer sex” as an explanation as to why one might imagine passing out sex toys to minors is acceptable.
What’s more, he said he hadn’t felt compelled to run the “instructional” activity by the school’s board of trustees — because he was confident they would approve.
“Like, why would I run it by them? They would be like, ‘Oh my God, that’s wonderful!’” he said.
The Francis W. Parker School told The Christian Post through a spokesperson that Bruno’s comments were taken out of context, pointing to the activity he was discussing was merely part of its “comprehensive approach to sex education.”
“Programs designed to help cultivate physical and emotional well-being as well as a strong sense of belonging are central to our mission,” the statement read.
It explained that the video of Bruno was “deceptively” edited and that he was “misled to believe he was conversing with another conference attendee over a coffee.”
“He was filmed without his knowledge or permission while describing one example of our inclusive, LGBTQ+ affirming, and comprehensive approach to sex education,” it continued, appearing to confirm that the school does indeed bring in an LGBT resource center to pass out sex toys to children during “pride” week.
“Parker administrators and Parker’s Board of Trustees support Parker’s programming, the strength and inclusivity of our curriculum, and the dedicated and talented faculty and staff that teach it,” the statement continued, consistent with Bruno’s confidence that the board would approve of such activities.
The Christian Post notes that “The school statement argued that ‘Veritas deceptively edited the video with malicious intent,’ though it did not provide CP with specific examples of how Bruno was taken out of context.”
