“A lot of you have to realize that your minds are stuck in the norms of our era. 500 years from now gender fluidity will be the norm. You are not able to transport your mind to the future and see it all. You’re basic [expletive]…,”
(Heather Clark – Christian News) A viral video of a 10-year-old boy who identifies as a “LGBTQ activist and advocate” and a “drag kid” is raising concern as some state that children being taught about drag and homosexuality is inappropriate and a reflection of ungodly parenting.
“I was born in Pride Month,” the child, who identifies as “Desmond Is Amazing,” stated in the video shared by The Huffington Post on Friday. “Gay pride means self-expression to me. … I discovered that I wanted to do drag when I watched the first episode of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ when I was two.”
Desmond, donning a pink dress and hat, was called up on stage by RuPaul during DragCon 2017, characterizing him as a “gorgeous little queen” and having the boy “sashay” for the cheering onlookers. He has also appeared at homosexual pride events and has his own YouTube channel with over 2,000 followers.
In last week’s video, the child outlined that in pursuing drag, he soon began emulating the styles of various over-the-top fashion designers.
“I got my inspiration from designers like Alexander McQueen, Betsey Johnson, Commes des Garcon, Jean Paul Gaultier, The Club Kids—their fashion and the makeup, not the bad things—and The Blitz Kids of London,” Desmond stated, wearing a yellow wig and fabric mouse ears.
He explained how others can get their start in drag.
“If you want to do drag, just start off with a little wig and some lip gloss, and a little t-shirt and a little skirt, and some heels or sneakers or whatever,” Desmond advised, as clips showed the boy applying makeup. “You can be a drag queen no matter what.”
