An event to teach kids about drag was hosted by the LGBTQ+ Alliance Club at Rolling Hills Prep in California and organized by an "omnisexual" 7th grader… that is, A 12-YEAR-OLD CHILD who can't possibly have any idea what omnisexual means.
The 7th grader who organized the event (and leads the Rainbow Alliance club at the school) came out to her parents with "unequivocal" support only a year and a half ago (she would have been around the age of 10 at the time).
Omnisexual, by the way, means one has no sexual preference, which seems pretty par for the course for 10-year-olds that shouldn't be thinking about sex anyway.
The article describes the event, as:
...meant to educate the school community about LGBTQ cultures and expressive outlets, including the performative nature of drag. The event included booths exploring how to build a drag persona, what wigs to wear and how to do make-up. There was also a friendly lip-sync competition.
Well, I for one am glad that the lip-sync competition was friendly. We wouldn't want anything crazy happening when young children are involved.
Amy Hollinger, the head of the school, said that the Drag Night
…was better than I think we even could have imagined it to be.
So that's inspirational. It inspires me to puke.
One of the school's teachers, Tanner Pfeiffer, performed in the show saying,
Having done drag before, knowing a lot of performers in the drag scene, I want to support the queer youth who are interested in doing drag themselves, learning more about it, and experiencing a family-friendly introduction to what it's like to be a member of the queer community.
Yeah, THAT guy teaches middle schoolers music… and goodness knows what else.
