The First United Methodist Church in Sherman, Texas, hosted a “family-friendly drag show” titled the “Pride Prom” at its Mosaic Campus. The event, organized by Grayson County Pride, was scheduled to take place at Pecan Grove Park West but the location was later changed to the church. Drag performers were present at the event and also children and an adult wearing a “furry” costume were seen at the location. The change of the venue for the event was reported by the conservative advocacy group, Protect Texas Kids, whose members were among the protestors present outside. Counter-protestors were also present, one of whom wore a Spiderman outfit and held a rainbow flag.
The Christian Post reports:
Protesters, drag performers and at least one adult in a so-called “furry” costume were on hand last weekend for a “family-friendly drag show” that was moved to a local church at the last minute.
The “Pride Prom” event hosted by Grayson County Pride was originally scheduled for May 13 at Pecan Grove Park West in Sherman, located about 65 miles north of Dallas.
Prior to the event, however, the location was reportedly changed to 118 W Pecan Street, which is the address of the Mosaic Campus of First United Methodist (FUM) Sherman, according to the church’s website.
The location change was first reported by Protect Texas Kids, a conservative advocacy group, whose members were among several people on hand to protest outside the venue.
A handful of protesters held signs and one waved an American flag as the event got underway at the location, where kids were seen on video attending the drag show.
Another group of protesters, The New Columbia Movement, a Catholic advocacy group, marched with a flag reading “DEFEND PURITY, REJECT PERVERSION” were also on hand as they “prayed the rosary alongside locals” at the event.
As the day went on, counter-protesters — including a “gay” Spiderman holding a rainbow flag — showed up outside the church. Another person held a rainbow flag with the libertarian motto “Don’t tread on me.”
