An elementary school in Austin, Texas held a pride parade in its halls during a ‘Pride Week’ which the school reportedly did not inform the parents was happening. A video taken inside the school shows children being made to march through the halls with rainbow signs and flags in their elementary’s own gay pride parade, some chanting “Pride! Pride! Pride!”

According to documents posted online, children as young as five – and possibly even younger – were also made to participate in “community circles” to discuss sexuality, LGBTQ+ experience, and subjects that have no place in an elementary school classroom.

In the instructional documents provided for faculty to lead these discussions, it tells them to continuously remind the children that the conversations they have in the room are not to be told to anyone. Thus, these kids are being told to keep everything that was discussed a secret, even from their parents.


What would five-year-olds be discussing that should be kept a secret? Certainly nothing that’s an appropriate conversation for kids of their age to be having, especially in school.

As a matter of fact, Texas state law states that “A parent is entitled to full information regarding the school activities of a parent’s child. An attempt by any school district employee to encourage or coerce a child to withhold information from the child’s parent is grounds for discipline.”

The assistant principal at the school, Hannah Wankel, posted a video of the parade to her Twitter account, then deleted it shortly after. Fortunately, others had already captured a copy.

The school that hosted this recent grooming event is Doss Elementary School, located in the very liberal area of Austin, TX.

The Austin Independent School District (AISD) places a major focus on the LGBTQ+ community, even at their elementary schools where children do not even need to be learning about sexuality whatsoever.

AISD made a very big deal on their Twitter account of promoting their pride week’s “Pride Out” party, with an attached flyer encouraging students to go to the school’s front office to get “pride stickers, posters, flags, pronoun buttons and more!”

Hannah Wankel, Doss Elementary’s assistant principal, has a Twitter account absolutely littered with posts about gay pride and pride week at the school.
