Last week in Ohio, fierce public backlash forced the cancellation of a “Drag 101” class to teach teenage boys how to apply makeup and wear drag like their mothers.
The Delaware, Ohio County District library was forced to cancel the “Drag 101” class under threats or murder and bloodshed. The backlash to the drag class for boys was so furious that the organizers refuse to say where the next class will be held – out of an abundance of caution for the safety of the participants.
Similar “drag boys” classes are being held around the country, in libraries in mostly liberal cities. The targets of the classes are boys between the ages of 12-17.
Parents are concerned that these classes are grooming their sons to participate in the LGBT+ lifestyle. “It’s nothing to do with sex or gender identity at all,” insists Drag Queen Selena T. West, one of the class organizers.
