Drag marchers allegedly yelled chants about targeting children at two New York City Pride events over the weekend, while hundreds of attendees allegedly danced naked in front of minors.
Beginning at Tompkins Square Park on Friday, a group of drag queens and transgender activists paraded across the East Village to the Stonewall Inn, marking the beginning of the weekend’s festivities in the city.
Marchers, including a shirtless woman, can be seen in a viral video from Timcast News yelling, “We’re here!” We’re the gays! We’re going to take your kids!
Americans who are working to protect children were outraged by the cry, even though some have claimed it was a sarcastic response to claims that certain members of the LGBTQ community intend to “groom” youngsters.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) tweeted in support of the “Protect Children’s Innocence Act,” legislation that would limit so-called “gender-affirming care” procedures. “This movement grooms minors to have mastectomies and castrations and fuels a multibillion-dollar medical child abuse industry,” Greene said.
“Let kids be kids,” she said.
In other words, “We’re here, we’re queer, and we’re coming for your children!”
The medical child abuse industry is worth billions of dollars, and this movement prepares children to have mastectomies and castrations.
The Innocent Children Act must be passed.
Leave children alone.
“And these people seriously wonder why society is turning against us?” the official Gays Against Groomers Twitter account wrote. “SICKENING. These individuals are causing far more damage to our society than any true bigot ever could.
The first drag march took place in 1994 as a protest against the exclusion of drag queens from the Pride March due to organizers’ concerns that the presence of such performers would discourage corporate funding of the event.
Later that day, during the “New York City Dyke March,” nude adults were reportedly spotted dancing and playing in the Washington Square Park fountain while children watched.
Children were seen playing with inflatable devices made to appear like “clitorises” supplied by the women partaking in the event, as filmed by Turning Point USA Frontlines reporter Savanah Hernandez. Saturday’s unsponsored march was the 31st annual gathering of this particular organization. The rallying cry for this year is “Not Your F***ing Body, Not Your F***ing Business.”
On the last day of Pride Month, there will be a parade honoring the Stonewall Riots of 1969, a series of unplanned demonstrations by the LGBTQ community in response to police raids.
Many of the NYC activities this year encouraged the LGBTQ community to work together to defeat legislation that would ban sex-change medical procedures on kids and lower the legal age for attending drag shows.
Pride celebrations in major U.S. cities are coordinated by an estimated 400 LGBTQ+ organizations.
