Firstly, I apologize up front for this blog.
No. I take that back. I don’t apologize for the blog. I apologize for whatever perverted, twisted sickness of the human soul led to this blog needing to be written. Proceed at your own risk of vomiting.
An 11-year-old boy dressed in drag was filmed and plastered all over social media earlier this month dancing atop a stage at a gay night club in front of God-only-knows how many fully grown men. For pleasure. For fun.
The prepubescent boy, an up-and-coming LGBTQ personality named Desmond Napoles, can been seen on multiple videos and photos (too disturbing to link to) dressed in a skimpy girl’s crop-top with full make-up and a blonde wig gyrating sexually to No Doubt’s pop anthem, “Just a Girl,” all for the apparent gratification of adult gay men who can be seen on video throwing dollar bills at the child.
Let me repeat that: an underage boy was made to dance like a stripper in front of a mob of adults for money.
The venue was a gay night club in Brooklyn called “3 Dollar Bill,” whose website says they’re “commit[ted] to inclusion and the celebration of queer identity." As reported by the Daily Wire, at least one Yelp reviewer found the whole experience rightly disturbing, posting on the review site:
It’s not the first time Desmond has been paraded about as an LGBT icon. "Good Morning America" ran a full segment praising this underage child’s drag queen style and the unhinged parents who apparently support it - a segment that featured adults applauding as Desmond sashayed down a runway in a dress and heels. Starting at only 6 years old and going by the stage name “Desmond Is Amazing, he’s been put on display on runways at New York Fashion Week and regularly performs at LGBT night clubs.
Now, someone please try to explain to me how this isn't open child abuse and exploitation for profit. Go ahead. I'll wait.
