(FreedomBeacon.com)- During a Sunday afternoon appearance at Capitol Pride in Washington, Vice President Kamala Harris demonstrated her support for the LGBTQ+ community. Symone, the season 13 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and Harris, 57, were both present on stage.
It was the sixth anniversary of the Orlando nightclub shooting that left 49 people dead and 58 more injured. Harris said that no one should fear coming to a nightclub for fear that a terrorist could try to take them down.
Just one day after police in Idaho detained 31 individuals for planning to riot at a Coeur d’Alene Pride march, Harris said that no one should dread going to a Pride celebration because of a white supremacist. And no one should be afraid of loving who they love.
“Our kids in Florida and Texas shouldn’t be afraid of who they are.”
Greg Abbott, the governor of Texas, ordered an investigation into child abuse on the part of parents of transgender children with gender-affirming surgery.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed legislation known, idiotically, as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. The misinformed believe educators will soon be forbidden from addressing sexual orientation and gender identity with pupils in kindergarten through third grade in Florida.
A Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives, Bryan Slaton, said last week that he is submitting a bill that would forbid drag events in Texas when minors are present. Drag events are purposely overtly sexual.
Slaton tweeted on June 6 that Drag shows are no place for a toddler. Neither he nor Speaker Dade Phelan nor his Republican colleagues would ever take their children to a drag show.
It is certainly not appropriate to be included in a school’s curriculum. Can you imagine if it was mandated that a 2nd grader be read stories by women in lingerie?
Why is it necessary for men in lingeries to read to children?
Meanwhile, Harris prattles on-
“Black and brown and women of color, as well as transgender women, should not fear for their lives.”
“We shouldn’t have to deal with 300 legislation in states all over our nation that are assaulting our LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters.”
It’s not clear which legislation is an assault.
She ended her speech with a forward-looking statement, “So, we know what we stand for, and consequently, we know what we will fight for.”
