(RightIsRight.co) – According to several reports, upwards of $200,000 in taxpayer funds has been spent on “drag shows” in New York City public schools. This while all across the country, parents are trying to regain control of what is being taught and presented to their children — an issue that decided the last gubernatorial election in Virginia.
As The College Fix points out in, “New York put out over $200K for drag shows in NYC public schools”:
“New York, the state and the city, has paid over $200,000 to drag performers for appearances in New York City public schools since 2018…
“Since January of this year, the group Drag Story Hour NYC (formerly the Drag Queen Story Hour NYC) has made 49 appearances in 34 schools, elementary through senior high. In May, the group made $46,000 for its appearances at schools, festivals and libraries.” [emphasis added]
What takes place at these appearances?
“Drag Story Hour NYC members usually ‘read aloud from a list of books that teach acceptance and inclusion, including children’s classics like ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ and ‘The Rainbow Fish.” But other books ‘overtly celebrate’ gender fluidity such as ‘The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish.’” [emphasis added]
