LA Zoo’s ‘family-friendly’ show features drag queens grabbing their genitals

The Los Angeles Zoo recently hosted an all-ages show during its Lights and Animals Aglow tour, featuring “highly sexualized” drag queens who grotesquely grabbed their genitals, fondled themselves, and stripped in front of children and infants.

Cultural and political commentator for PragerU Aldo Buttazzoni covered the event that was held in partnership with LA Pride, according to the Los Angeles Zoo website. He was shocked and horrified not only by the depraved performances in front of children but by parents willingly bringing their little children to the sexualized event.

“The L.A. Zoo marketed this event, not only to children but to infants under the age of 2, and invited performers like Harrison Fortner, who goes by the stage name Valora Von Tease. Fortner is a Los Angeles-based drag performer who shows himself on social media smoking drugs, in kink, wearing bondage gear, and in sexually explicit photos. This is who the L.A. Zoo invited children and toddlers to see,” Buttazzoni wrote in an op-ed piece for Fox News.

Buttazzoni delved into exactly why drag queens are so intent on performing in front of children and why American society is tolerating it. He sat down for an interview on Fox News and showed just how raunchy the performance was while discussing the fallout over it.

“Before covering the event, I spoke with the Zoo’s Director of Equity Programs Jessica Niven-Kohring who insisted there was nothing sexually charged about the event. Despite these claims, I witnessed highly sexualized performers fondling themselves, grabbing their genitals, and cursing in front of a crowd of adolescents. After the event, Kohring refused to answer me when I asked if he stood by his previous statement,” he wrote.

PragerU posted a six-minute video online that was shot during the event, showing what the children saw, including one performer doing a strip tease.

“As I watched these adult men stripping in front of innocent, impressionable kids, I couldn’t help but ask why they would be so adamant about performing in front of children and why our society was allowing it to happen,” Buttazzoni continued in his op-ed piece.

“Our society has deemed certain things inappropriate for children to consume: alcohol, porn, and even R-rated movies. We implemented these restrictions because we understand that children do not have the maturity or mental capacity to engage in such behaviors and doing so could be dangerous and cause harm to them,” he added.

He asked questions and stated facts that many don’t dare to voice because they are afraid of offending the LGBTQ community.

“The only reason drag shows have been exempt from this ‘adults only’ list is because these events fall under the umbrella of LGBT culture and promote a social justice agenda of not just tolerance but acceptance, even for children,” the PragerU commentator noted.

“This notion has shielded drag events from criticism and any such criticism has been deemed as hateful. The hosts of these ‘family-friendly’ drag events know that in today’s society, as long as you hold a rainbow flag up while you do it, as long as you identify as an oppressed ‘marginalized’ group, the rules don’t apply to you,” he asserted.

It all comes back to social justice in the end and how that progressive mandate has infiltrated and corrupted American society morphing it into a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah.

“What we’re seeing now is a result of this slippery slope of social justice. While many parents strive to raise their children to be tolerant and inclusive of others despite their differences, their intentions have been completely abused,” Buttazzoni commented. “This isn’t just ‘playing dress up with kids’ as they claim. This isn’t about self-expression, gay pride, or gay rights. This is about sexualizing children.”

“It doesn’t matter whether the adults involved are well-intentioned. The result nonetheless is kids being indoctrinated with sexual propaganda,” he bluntly charged.

Buttazzoni goes on to explain that children are innocent and have no idea that what they are being subjected to is twisted and sexualized. But the performers and the parents do.

PragerU is educating the public concerning subjects such as drag shows and inappropriate books that are placed in school libraries with its “Protect Children’s Innocence” campaign. Buttazzoni’s reporting is part of that effort.

“There is a blatant attempt to groom children before our very eyes and ultimately it’s conditioning them into accepting a radical gender ideology,” he said in his piece.

“Is it any surprise that 1 in 5 Gen Z individuals identifies as being a part of the LGBT community? What about a recent report showing prescriptions for puberty-blocking drugs among minors doubling between 2017 and 2021?” Buttazzoni asked, taking issue with the pushing of gender ideology on children.

“Parents have a right to decide what their child consumes and their opposition to drag shows, especially in public places and in front of children, doesn’t make them homophobic or bigoted. It makes them protective of their kids’ innocence,” he proclaimed.

“We have a moral obligation to keep the most innocent in our society safe and protect them from harmful, graphic material. This starts with recognizing that there is no such thing as a ‘family-friendly’ drag show and erasing them from American public life. Nothing less than the innocence and future of our children are at stake,” the author concluded.
