Participants in a New York City drag march have gone viral after a video appeared to show the crowd chanting, “We’re here. We’re queer. We’re coming for your children.”
Drag Parade Marchers Make a Statement
The Friday march was part of New York City’s annual “pride month” celebrations and also served as a commemoration of the Stonewall riots 54 years ago which are generally considered the beginning of the gay rights movement.
The marchers, many wearing flamboyant dresses and clothing, walked through Tompkins Square Park in the East Village Friday night as part of the city’s Pride Month celebrations.
Video of the incident showed multiple march participants, including one woman who was topless, shouting “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming for your children.”
The questionable choice of words has been perceived by many as LGBT activists boasting about indoctrinating children.
It’s unclear at this point who actually started the chant and why.
Another time, other people marching were heard chanting “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re not going shopping.” The festive marchers ended their march at the iconic Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village.
The controversial chant received backlash and condemned the marchers.
“This movement grooms minors to have mastectomies and castration and fuels a multi-billion dollar medical child abuse industry,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) tweeted in response to the clip.
“Pass the Protect Children’s Innocence Act. Let kids be kids,” she added, referencing a bill in Congress that would make it a felony to perform gender-affirming care on a minor.
The Drag March is an annual event that was created by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who was recently were honored with the LA Dodgers’ Community Hero award during the baseball team’s Pride Night.
Not The First Time LGBT Groups Want Your Children
The San Fransisco Gay Men’s Chorus released a song last year to celebrate pride month called “We’re Coming For Your Children.”
“A Message From the Gay Community” Performed by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus
The song, called “A Message from the Gay Community,” contained the following lyrics:
“You say we all lead lives you don’t respect,
But you’re just frightened.
You think that we’ll corrupt your kids if our agenda goes unchecked.
Funny, just this once, you’re correct.
We’ll convert your children,
Happens bit by bit,
Quietly and subtly and you will barely notice it.
We’re coming for them.
We’re coming for your children.
We’re coming for them.
We’re coming for your children.”
The song mocks parents that fear the push of the LGBTQ agenda, with the song claiming that parents wouldn’t be able to protect their kids from the advances and ideas of the group.
Those who have defended the marchers have said that they were actually mocking conservatives who think they’re targeting children.
