A group of concerned parents gathered together on both Thursday and Friday to protest against a scheduled drag queen performance that is set to be hosted at Newton North High School, a public school that is located in the state of Massachusetts. Given how liberal the state is, it’s encouraging that anyone is standing up against this sickening nonsense, so I guess there is hope for some people after all.
Parents who are opposed to the event were met by a crowd of counterprotesters who see absolutely nothing wrong with subjecting children to sexual deviance and perversion in the form of men dressed up like women who dance provocatively in a manner more akin to what you’d see at a strip club.
“Newton North High School plans to host a drag queen, who goes by the stage name Missy Steak, on Friday. Steak is anticipated to ‘talk and sing to students at the 30-minute assembly as part of Transgender Bisexual Gay and Lesbian Awareness Day,'” TheBlaze reported.
“The event was organized by students in the Gender Sexuality Alliance club. School officials insisted the performance was vetted by faculty advisers to ensure the content would be age-appropriate for students,” the report continued.
The performer is set to discuss kindness, inclusivity, and positivity, according to a report from WFXT. Steak is also set to do a couple of musical numbers from pop singer Lady Gaga, who is a bit of an icon amongst the transgender community.
While the event is allegedly optional, parents opposed to the event have stated that it still forces their hand.
“If it were up to me, I’d say, ‘Don’t do this event,'” parent Henry Barbaro said in an interview with WBTS. “This performance is really forcing the hand of parents to either kind of do this draconian prohibition or say to their kids, ‘all right, you can go,’ and hope for the best.”
During an interview with the network, Steak went on to say, “I am just a person doing a job.”
“It’s not sexual, it’s fun. It’s art, it’s clownery in the most Shakespearian sense,” Steak continued. “If you walk away from drag and feel offended, you’re allowed to have those feelings, but that’s not what the art form is about.”
Dr. Kathleen Smith, interim Superintendent, defended the drag event.
Smith, speaking with Fox News Digital, said, “Students selected this specific performance because drag is a performance art that is often a part of LGBTQ+ events.”
“While there are many different types of drag performances, this particular performance is appropriate for the teenage audience,” Smith remarked. “Like many of the performances in our schools, this performance seeks to deliver an important message — a message of kindness, inclusivity, and positivity — in a way that engages the teen audience.”
“We are proud to support our LGBTQ+ students as they build awareness of and celebrate their identities within the context of our larger school community,” the interim superintendent added.
Then, on Thursday, Newton Mayor Ruthanne Fuller also came out in favor of the drag performance.
“In Newton, we are a committed to better understanding and celebrating our individuality and diversity,” Fuller commented. “As Mayor, I wholeheartedly and proudly support our LGBTQ+ students as they build awareness of and celebrate their identities. This day and this work are important and necessary to create a welcoming and inclusive school community.”
