Durham Charter To Hold Pride and Liberation Event Featuring Drag Queen Story Hour

The Central Park School for Children sent an email to staff this week announcing their first “Pride & Liberation Event” to be held on May 13th. The school will hold LGBTQ themed “mini-lessons” and activities in all K-8 classes during the week prior to the event.

The email was written by Taylor W. Schmidt, who lists his title as “MS Social & Community Studies.”

According to his school bio, Taylor Schmidt is originally from Kansas and went to Kansas State University where he received a BA degree in Biological and Cultural Anthropology.

“A wild ride involving rather large tornadoes, Maasai jumping, and a fatefully timed lecture from Justice Sotomayor landed him in North Carolina via the Teach for America program,” reads the bio for Schmidt.

Staff was given these reasons for children as young as 5 being exposed to sexually charged LGBTQ materials for a week straight in the classroom:

1.) Increased visibility for queer members of the community, with a focus on centering queer People of Color.
2.) Education on race, gender, queer history, and intersectionality, as well as advocacy, contributing to spaces of inclusiveness and liberation, and upstanding/anti-bullying.
3.) Challenging common misconceptions and the increasing instances of exclusionary, demeaning, and threatening language and actions amongst students, disproportionately affecting students of Color, LGBTQ students, and female students.

North Carolina’s sexual education instruction does not begin until 7th grade.

In 2018, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction spent nearly $400,000 out of federal Title V grant money intended for abstinence education on an LGBTQ campaign called SHIFT (Sexual Health Initiative for Teens). The same year, the 2018 ‘Sex Ed Sit Out‘ protested the Human Rights campaign tied LGBTQ materials being pushed in NC K-12 classrooms.

The email sent to Central Park School for Children staff also came with an “explainer” document that staff was urged to read.  The staff was told to hold on to the document until the event was “rolled out” to the community.

The “explainer” document details of the “Pride & Liberation event including a ‘Drag Queen Story Hour for kindergarten through fourth grade. According to the document, “Justin Clapp, Raafe Ahmed Nathaniel Purnsley, et. al.” are the “Drag artists/community activists, primary organizers of Triangle Pride 2018” involved in the story hour.

Justin Clapp is a gay black man who is the “Director of Access and Outreach and the Washington Duke Scholars Program at Duke University” and is also known as the ‘social justice’ drag queen “Vivica C. Coxx.”

Clapp performs as Coxx at a Durham venue known as The Pinhook.

“We put forward a social justice bent, with a focus on humor, enthusiastic consent, antiracism, antitransphobia, antimisogynyjust basically trying to create an environment for everyone. And I think anyone who has been to our shows has felt comfortable, unless they are a bigot,” Clapp told IndyWeek in 2018.

In 2018, Clapp did a TEDx talk called “Tearing Down Power Structures” along with UNC professor and Antifa/Redneck Revolt member Dwayne Dixon, who was arrested for bringing an assault rifle to an alleged KKK counter protest – a protest that ultimately turned out to be a hoax.

Raafe Ahmed Nathaniel Purnsley performs alongside Clapp as part of the “House of Coxx” seen below as a drag queen named Stormie Daie, holding up a paper that says “Fuck Donald Trump.”

A ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ held in a Houston library made national headline last month when not one, but two of the drag queens involved in the event were found to have arrest records.

One of the Houston library drag queens with a record is Albert Alfonso Garza, age 32. Garza is a registered child sex offender and was convicted in 2008 for the sexual assault an 8-year-old boy.

The second Houston drag queen, William Travis Dees, was exposed by LifeSite News as having been a 2004 conviction and went to jail for “sex crimes against four young children (ages 4, 5, 6, and 8)” and  that Dees is listed as a “high risk sex offender.”

Schmidt’s “explainer” document also states that this exposure of young children to LGBTQ topics is “Aligned to Central Park’s Charter and 5 year “All Children Thriving” Plan.”

The details for the “All Children Thriving” plan listed in the document include strengthening CPSC’s “identity of being committed to striving for social justice – particularly racial and economic justice.”

There is also a section that discusses emphasizing black and Hispanic students  by  building and maintaining “an environment that increases the capacity of CPSC’s community to foster white members’ and economically advantaged members’ sharing of or relinquishing of power in order to achieve equity.”

Shorter: We will make sure our white students and parents check their privilege.

Following the text about helping members to check their white privilege, Schmidt’s explainer notes that “To this particular point, Justin Clapp is uniquely skilled in pointing out power imbalances, subtle/nuanced systems of white supremacy.”

      Totally inappropriate? What is wrong with you? Inappropriate doesn’t begin to describe this outrage. Get bloody outraged.

    Atheists don’t send their children to an evangelical Christian Sunday School one hour per week, but Christians send their children to the atheist public schools 30 hours per week. I am a retired teacher and unequivocally proclaim that there is no hope for America as long as Christians and conservatives allow our children to be indoctrinated in the pagan (a.k.a. “public”) schools. We must rescue our children! See specifics at http://www.insectman.us/exodus-mandate-wv/index.htm I am not raising funds. My goal is to rescue children.

    End times. Pure wickedness. This is child abuse exposing children to perversion and then not tell parents. I would sue everyone involved! They just want fresh meat to molest because they are really pedophiles.

      I have known many gay men and women. Thankfully, no transgenders, who are mentally ill. But none of the gays have been pedophiles. None. Pedophiles and gays are 2 separate groups with little overlap. I have worked with pedophiles in a prison setting, and they usually are not gay. Just evil and sick and vile. Transgenders, on the other hand, are classified by the AMA as mentally ill! But having a program like this for children is more of the Left’s attempt to brainwash them and destroy all our values and insist there are NO absolutes, including God. It was the Democrats who at the 2012 DNC booed God.


  8. Joy says:

    Any parent that allows their children to attend this evil crap needs to lose custody of them and locked up for child abuse.

    May God have mercy on you! How can you corrupt the minds of innocent children?


  10. Clyde L. Hunt Jr. says:

    The left, the liberal/progressive/socialist/Democrats are destroying traditional America. Our Judeo-Christian values that contributed greatly to the formation of the most powerful, just and benevolent nation in world history is under extreme assault by the left. Left unchallenged, they will destroy us. Speak out people, NOW.

    May Godly people everywhere pray, and do all we can to stop this twisted perversion. It is not fit for anyone to see, much less our precious babies. May God’s love be shown to the LGBTQ community, and to all who feel they are threatened in some way by white people. But may we never tolerate or accept their prejudices or behaviors, which are an abomination to the Lord.


  13. Shanna Lehr says:

    This is absolutely unacceptable to be shoving in the faces of young children. You should be ashamed of yourselves, Central Park!


  14. Kathy says:

    Are parents going to let their children see this? Sex offenders dressed as strippers? Telling little kids they have no right to not like this?
