Gyrating drag queen’s erotic performance shocks audience at grade school talent show

Todd Starnes,

What in the name of RuPaul is wrong with the New York City Board of Education?

Parents are furious after children as young as 5-years-old were exposed to an erotic drag show performance at what was supposed to be a school district talent show.

 “My first reaction was what the hell is going on,” parent Raquel Morales told me.

The New York Daily News described the lewd performance as “complete with gyrations, tongue gymnastics and a flashed G-string.”

The May 25th performance shocked and enraged parents who could not believe the school district would allow a grown man to spread his legs and display his crotch to wide-eyed children.

“I left the show the minute he started sticking his tongue out,” one parent to the Daily News. “I had my children with me and I wasn’t going to allow them to see that.”

Ms. Morales filmed the seven-minute routine on her cell phone and provided me with a copy. It’s jaw-dropping, folks. And when the drag queen dropped to the floor and began writhing in a sexually-suggestive manner, the auditorium erupted.

“Once he got to that part it was chaos,” Ms. Morales said. “People were yelling and leaving. A lot of parents were saying had they known this was going to happen they would have taken their kids out after they had performed.”

The talent show was emceed by District 4 Superintendent Alexandra Estrella. And the individual who performed in drag was identified as the president of the Public School 96 Parent Association.

“The school district told me the performance was about LGBT awareness,” she said.

I reached out to the district as well as the board of education – multiple times. So far, they have not returned my telephone calls.

So, here’s the bottom line. There are several issues that need to be addressed.

First, who signed off on a school program that featured a kindergarten choir and a gyrating, adult drag queen?

Second, why is that person still employed by the school district?

Third, why hasn’t the school district publicly apologized to traumatized parents and their children?

Ms. Morales made it a point to explain that her objection had nothing to do with the LGBT movement.

“I’m 100 percent against discrimination,” she said.

This is about age-appropriate behavior – and what happened in that auditorium was not age appropriate.

“The superintendent was the emcee – and she has a responsibility to protect all children,” she said. “That wasn’t a child performing. It was an adult.”

Moving forward, I recommend the school district adopt a policy to govern future grade school talent shows:

If a drag queen wants to spread his legs and show off his G-string he should do that at a nightclub – not a public school talent show.

    The homosexual community insists they do not have their sights on young children, this is living proof that they do. There have been efforts from within the homosexual community to have; in various states; the age of consent lowered. And an off shoot of the homosexual community, NAMBLA (North American man-boy love association) is particularly noteworthy in those efforts.

    And no discipline for school officials that knew this was planned but did nothing to stop it? Shame shame shame. I’d rather the children be handed Confederate Battle Flags and given a truthful explanation of it’s importance (it was adopted when Confederate troops attacked their own position when they confused the Confederate Flag for the Union Flag) and the fact that most of slavery was conducted under the U.S. flag.

    The contrast here are things are not always what they seem. Confederates, most not owning slaves, hardly had the incentive to lose all they had, including their lives, to protect a system essentially for the rich, no more than modern Americans would be motivated to go to war to reduce the taxes for the super rich. Obviously the South had something else in mind, namely the right to withdraw from a perceived tyrannical federal govt and go it alone or form other alliances.

    Likewise, the exhibitionist display of a drag queen is hardly promoting the interests of the LGBT community, unless they care to admit that jobs, pay, housing, etc., are not their ultimate reason for having the organization, rather a chance to get together for sexual encounters and exhibitionism being the reason, as well as indoctrination. Frankly I think the second option set is the reason they exist, is the reason none will judge the insppropriateness of this performance, and from my vantage at least, Confederate Soldiers were pursuing something laudable in principle but this drag queen performance was bereft of any social redemption.
