A viral video shows a drag queen straddling a student during a pride event at a North Carolina community college.
“Democrats believe it is permissible for a grown man to perform a lap dance on a child,” said national radio host Todd Starnes. “And anyone who disagrees with that they consider to be transphobic.”
The video, which was first made public by the Libs of TikTok account, shows a drag queen straddling and dancing on an individual who is reported to be a high schooler.
“This is from a drag event in @ForsythTechCC where they also invited younger kids,” Libs of TikTok wrote. “A parent told me the kid getting the lap dance is a 10th grader.”

The incident occurred at Forsyth Technical Community College’s pride festival in late March.
The community college has two programs for high schoolers who can take classes on campus. All students, some of whom are only 14 years old, were invited to this event.
In a statement to Libs of TikTok, the school did not apologize for inviting minors to the festival.
“Forsyth Tech is committed to being a place of promise for our students. In order to fulfill that promise, we have clearly spelled out our mission, vision and equity statements,” the statement said. “These students, like all college students, are open to attend any student event.”
The video comes as Americans are becoming increasingly divided over drag queen story hours and other grooming that is taking place in public schools.
Parents Defending Education’s Alex Nester slammed the community college over the weekend on “Fox News Live.”
“As we saw in that video, a drag queen touched a child inappropriately,” Nester said. “It raises the question: What policies need to be reconsidered at this school to protect children from adults touching them inappropriately? That’s shameful that there are adults standing there in the room and no one is doing anything.”
Following the outrage sparked by the incident, the community college said it is looking to “revise campus policies,” per a Fox News report.
