Illinois Pride festival scrubs ad urging kids to watch drag queens
By Belle Carter // Sep 20, 2022

Organizers of the Joliet Pridefest in Joliet, Illinois removed a line in its advertisement urging children to "bring dollar bills to tip the drag queens."

Twitter user Libs of TikTok (@libsoftiktok) was quick to capture this "grooming-supportive" invite, writing in a tweet: "Joliet, IL encourages kids to 'bring your dollar bills' so they can hand tips to the drag queens during the all-ages drag show."

Joliet Pride Network (JPN), the group that organized the event, later posted an amended version of the invitation. The term "all-ages" was removed from the poster, which only advertised the Sept. 17 "drag performance." The passage exhorting children to tip the drag performers, which followed an asterisk on the lower part of the virtual notice, was removed. (Related: 'Get your money, girls!': Children flaunt their bodies at Miami Drag Queen show and take dollars from LGBT perverts.)

One user who replied to Libs of TikTok's post asked why the event organizers edited the poster, to which another replied: "That the Joliet pride fest is encouraging the sexualization and sexual predation of young children?"

According to a Breitbart report, the Joliet Pridefest was sponsored by several government officials. State Rep. Natalie Manley and Will County Executive Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant were among the sponsors. Also listed were Will County Auditor Duffy Blackburn and Will County Coroner Laurie Summers.

Private companies Exxon and Holiday Inn also sponsored the event.

A report by the Herald-News expounded on the Joliet Pridefest, the event's third iteration, which pushed through last Sept. 17.

"The family-friendly event included an all-age drag show," said the local newspaper. "A 'PrideFest After Dark – Leather and Lace' event was restricted to those ages 18 and up and included a $20 admission charge. Otherwise, admission was free."

JPN Vice President Michael Smith was pleased with the number of people who attended and the mild weather that day. He told the Herald-News that about 26 nonprofits participated, including Pride groups from Bolingbrook and Naperville.

Meanwhile, JPN President Jeff Gregory expressed appreciation for the "generous support" coming from the elected officials, the community and the sponsors.

Pride event in Idaho suspends drag kids performance

Another Pride event, this time over at Idaho, suspended its "Drag Kids" performance following sponsors rescinding their support. The said performance at the Boise Pride Festival, Idaho's largest gay event, would have featured dances from child drag performers had it pushed through.

"While the vast majority of our sponsors and supporters have voiced their support for the Boise Pride Festival and the Drag Kids program, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone this performance due to increased safety concerns," said a statement from the event organizers.

"Although this decision was extremely hard to make, it is our No. 1 priority to provide these kids with a positive and safe environment to share their art. We will be making it our top priority to bring these kids the safe and incredible show that they deserve."

According to Breitbart, the suspension followed various sponsors pulling their support for the Boise Pride Festival. Among these sponsors was Zions Bank, which initially offered support to the event – but later rescinded it.

In a statement, Zions Bank said it was not previously aware of the events involving minors. The financial institution backed out after being notified about the planned child drag show.
