A gay night club in Brooklyn has been allowing an 11-year-old boy to perform as a drag queen for money thrown at him by patrons. And the media has been utterly silent about this outrage.
The boy, Desmond Napoles wore a blonde wig, high heels, a girl’s crop top, and full, glam make-up while he danced to the music at the 3 Dollar Bill club, the Daily Wire reported.
The gay adults in the audience loved the show and threw cash at the child with abandon.
The club was thrilled to advertise the event via Eventbrite:
Only in New York… a nightclub that makes you go WHOA!!!,” the promotion read, according to the Daily Wire. “FEATURING: Upcoming Legend from Television and the Runway: DESMOND IS AMAZING!!! PERFORMING LIVE! … This stage, this dance floor, this house … is ours as long as we protect it.
Even worse, the child’s parents are fully supportive of the boy’s apalling “hobby.”
As the parents say on Desmond’s website:
Therefore, rather than ostracize, punish, or shame him, force him to play with certain toys, or restrict him to boys only costumes and clothing while playing dress up, Desmond’s parents allowed him to inherently progress, explore, and choose his tastes in clothing, toys, and activities on his own. He had developed his gender identity as non-conforming, or gender fluid, as a young child. He is not, nor has the desire to become, transgender. From early on, he has said that he is a boy who enjoys dressing up as a girl.
This 11-year-old boy says he is “gay.” At 11.
The club fully understands how bad this is. When Desmond performs, there is a strict no cell phone policy because the club understands that if video of this child dancing for its gay patrons gets out, people will be outraged.
