As if the headline isn’t shocking enough, the details of this story are enough to make your stomach turn, that is if you aren’t part of liberal America who has been promoting so-called “drag kids.”
The Daily Wire reports, “On Saturday, CNBC published a video tweet of Desmond Napoles — AKA ‘Desmond is Amazing’ — an 11-year-old ‘drag kid’ who, earlier this month, ‘performed’ a dance number at a gay bar while collecting dollar bills from the adult men in the crowd. CNBC, which is owned by NBC Universal News Group, showcased the child as an ‘LGBTQ youth’ advocate.””This 11-year-old drag kid is using his voice to encourage LGBTQ youth to be themselves,” the liberal outlet’s tweet read.

This month, the 11-year-old child was dressed up in full-drag, resembling singer Gwen Stefani. He was put on stage at a gay bar called “3 Dollar Bill” in Brooklyn, New York.
The Daily Wire reports, “As he took off his coat and revealed his outfit, he bounced around onstage to No Doubt’s ‘Like a Girl’; cheering grown men were handing him single dollar bills, as you might see in a strip club.”
“Only in New York… a nightclub that makes you go WHOA!!!,” the gay bar’s Eventbrite promotion read. “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.”
CNBC first published the video in August of this year, prior to huge backlash and concern from the public over the child performing at a gay bar. Clearly CNBC made the decision to republish, and promote once again, the clear exploitation of the child.
The Daily Wire writes:
As previously reported by The Daily Wire, Desmond was promoted by NBC’s TODAY Show in June. “Meet the 10-year-old ‘drag kid’ taking over social media with inspiring message,” reads the caption video on Desmond. Left-wing site The Daily Beast gushed over Desmond’s drag and his progressive parents in a disturbing piece from February titled, “RuPaul Loves ‘Drag Kid’ Desmond. You Will Too. Fiercely.” The young child has been relentlessly praised and promoted by drag queen RuPaul, the host of VH1’s RuPaul’s Drag Race. When Desmond was just seven years old, he was featured in a music video for Season Six winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Jinkx Monsoon. In the video, Desmond dances on top of a bar in a red dress, long gloves, and jewelry. As an 8-year-old, the child was introduced on a NYC stage in full-drag by actor Tituss Burgess.
Editors Note: We do not begrudge anyone the right to be themselves. We are, however, completely opposed to the sexualization of children and any child, straight, gay or otherwise, dancing in a bar and being handed money like a stripper. This poor child is being used to push an agenda that sure feels like it is trying to normalize, or pave the way to normalizing, sex with children. Leave the kids alone and stop using them as props in sexual movements.
