The grooming is still going strong in Florida, despite a new state law that abolished lessons for elementary schoolers about homosexuality and transgenderism.
Too bad it couldn’t include churches.
A Florida church will host an event ostensibly for “LGBTQ youth and their families” that will feature a drag/transvestite show, along with “classes” covering gender dysphoria, “forbidden queer literature,” and more.
That is, it will pick up with the gay grooming right where the schools left off.
A nonprofit called GLSEN Collier is hosting the recruiting function, which it is calling a Youth Pride Conference, on May 21 at the Naples United Church of Christ (UCC). Children aged 12 to 17 are invited to the free event, as are 18-year-olds, and it’s safe to assume a lot of older, interested parties will show up as well.
The event’s website says the event is “for LGBTQ youth seeking to explore LGBTQ-related issues they face today.” Along with a free breakfast and lunch, there will be an even more appetizing “drag show from some of our local drag queens.”
Topics for sessions throughout the day will include gender dysphoria, “forbidden queer literature,” gender and biology, sexuality and science, sex education, political action, “navigating a religious identity” and, not surprisingly, mental health coping strategies.
A registration form for the event requires potential participants to affirm that neither Naples UCC nor Collier County Public Schools are affiliated with the “Youth Pride Conference.”
The church is, nonetheless, providing the venue.
The National Desk tried to contact both Naples UCC and GLSEN Collier for comment, but had not heard back before publication.
