A Libs of TikTok Twitter thread documenting the many examples of drag events targeting kids has her followers horrified but not surprised.

The person behind the Twitter account Libs of TikTok became popular largely because of how she spread awareness of leftists promoting a progressive agenda in schools. Scrolling through her feed yields dozens of examples, but recently the account holder put together a “Mega Thread” of drag events for kids that was truly eye-opening.

“~MEGA DRAG THREAD~ They say it’s innocent. They say it’s just about inclusion and acceptance. They say no one is trying to confuse, corrupt, or sexualize kids. They lie,” she wrote in the opening tweet.

The first video showed a clip from a drag show. “A gay nightclub in Minnesota held a drag show for children earlier this month. One of the performers said in an interview ‘I want to give the kids an opportunity to see what drag queen/king life is like on a day to day basis,’” the caption says.

One venue promoted an event called “Drag the Kids To Pride” that encouraged children to come up on stage with the drag performers. 

“A bar in Dallas, Texas is advertising a drag show for children including the opportunity for some kids to perform with the drag queens on stage. This is the drag queen host,” Libs of TikTok shared alongside a photo of a scantily clad person.

There were multiple examples of Drag Queen Story Hours, including events for preschool-aged children. Libs of TikTok noted when the libraries were publicly funded, essentially meaning local taxpayers were sponsoring these drag events for kids. 

One of these library events in Vermont had a flier that confirmed the Story Hour was “for all ages with stories focused on gender and activism.” They continued, saying, “drag queen story hour captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood.”

She also posted a video of children performing at Drag Con, saying, “Children and drag queens danced for adults with some kids even collecting money on stage at a drag convention this month.”

At another kids drag event, this one in Indiana, kids were encouraged to bring cash to tip the drag performers on stage. 

There were also a few examples of drag events taking place at schools. The Daily Wire originally reported on one of these events in Pennsylvania sponsored by Hempfield High School’s Gay Sexuality Alliance (GSA) club. The teacher who organized the event was allegedly placed on leave after parents discovered the drag show had taken place without their knowledge.
