Desmond is an 11-year old gay drag queen who founded the first drag house for youth and headlined dancing in a Brooklyn gay bar this month.
It is indeed disgusting.
No...on many levels.
What sane person would think an 11 year old, dancing in a bar...is normal?
I'm not thinking any of the adults involved are burdened with sanity.
I'd have to agree..
I'm sorry, Bozette, but this just doesn't sit well with me...and neither does dressing children up as adults and parading them around in beauty contests.
Nor I, Azlotto.
Call me old fashioned, but I don't like how society is going these days.
I've always been a "live and let live" type, but when I see things like this I do not think it bodes well for society.
I will not be watching that. yes freak shows get a lot of hits that does not make them popular. you can't be gay before puberty
What caught my attention is that he was allowed to perform in the bar, at all much less 9 PM-4AM, and that an outlet like Eventbrite could sell tickets for it online. Today parents are often not allowed to parent without the state stepping in...yet this is acceptable?
they are exploiting their child. Hollywood's been doing it for years. I've had crazy ideas before that all kids should be raised by professional child developers ( I know that's crazy ) but its stories like this that make me have these crazy ideas. these people are not sane enough to raise a child. my guess is he kills himself before 21
my mind has been raped by the headline "11 year old drag kid" that is not a real thing
The new paradigm is deeply disturbing. Deeply.
i'm sure he's very talented
Nope. There are many talented children, but I don't see any talent here...just exploitation.
his parents are probably so proud of the difference he is making in the world. this is the new front line of the current war. be prepared to get some glitter on ya
Nah, I opted out of this new society and glitter isn't welcome here.
Agree on Hollywood. I never understood why a Playboy publication was allowed to publish nudes of a 10-year old Brooke Shields, either.
Definitely a crazy idea...dystopian, actually.
I don't remember that but children get molested because their parents let them. the parents should be held accountable for neglect. would you be surprised if something happens to this kid at that bar. I bet the parents hope it happens so they can get money from a lawsuit
No, it wouldn't surprise me in the least. Given the publicity and very public presence of this child, I've no doubt if it hasn't already happened, it is likely to.
No, I don't think there is anything amazing about children being "drag kids", and performing in adult clubs.
its amazing we don;t charge parents with child endangerment when they force this propaganda down their kids throats
