A middle school in Bellingham, Washington will be hosting a “Drop-Dead Gorgeous Drag Show”, put on by the students in the Gender Sexuality Alliance Club.
On March 29, Bellingham Public Schools held a Shark Tank-style competition where student groups from across the district presented their ideas for “improving their schools and community.”
The community members in attendance were given the opportunity to vote to determine which student organization’s “BIG idea” would receive a portion of the $10,000 in grant money. It seems that more than one idea won some of the prize money, but the distribution amounts were not made public.
The “Drop-Dead Gorgeous Drag Show” won a portion of the grant money and, while some parents seem okay with the event, per a Facebook discussion between members of the Whatcom Middle School Parent Teacher Student Association, others think it is entirely inappropriate for students to participate in and/or attend a drag show.
One father to a 2nd grader in the district, Christopher Morris, gave a statement to Young America’s Foundation.
“As a Bellingham Public School parent, I am very concerned to see that one of our middle schools not only has a ‘Gender Sexuality Alliance Club,’ but that it will be involved in a drag show. Our schools have become more interested in activism than education, pushing leftist gender ideology at every turn. What started out as a call for inclusion has become ceaseless promotion.”
