Shocking footage has emerged on Twitter of a so-called ‘family friendly’ drag queen show in which one of the performers encouraged a young girl to dance in a provocative and suggestive manner. 

In the video, filmed at an event at an LGBTQ-friendly bar in Chicago, the crowd cheered as the child, who looked no older than about nine, was spurred on to dance like a drag artist.

The girl initially appeared shy but was quickly coaxed into performing alongside the drag queen. 

The youngster can then be seen moving her hips back and forth and swaying her body in a suggestive manner. 

Encouraging the child, the crowd jeered as she continued to be serenaded by the drag queen who walks her up and down the stage. 

At one point, the little girl is encouraged to walk through the swathes of people as those watching pull out their cell phones and record footage.

Many in the crowd do not appear to have a problem with what they are witnessing despite the sexually suggestive nature and the involvement of a young girl.

However those online had a far different opinion with many, appearing to be disgusted and outraged by what they had witnessed. 

‘A drag queen teaches a young girl how to shake her body and perform like a drag artist at a ‘family-friendly’ drag show in Chicago’ stated the infamous Libs of TikTok Twitter account. 

The event appears to have happened at a gay bar on the outskirts of Chicago known as Replay Andersonville and part of the city’s Pride events.

Online adverts do not state that content of an adult nature was to be portrayed nor that it was unsuitable for children.

‘The fact that so many people don’t see how inappropriate this is… It’s actually upsetting. They’re making this child a target for pedophiles. 

‘If someone else asks her to ‘dance’ like this, she’ll think it’s funny & fine. All these adults need to be arrested for endangerment,’ wrote Twitter user Orietta Rose. 

‘LGBT is grooming kids to make them gay,’ suggested another user.

‘Once upon a time, NOT having children around was considered a reprieve for adults to enjoy mature things. Guess that’s over,’ wrote Eddie Scarry.

‘The men standing there and cheering while a pervert twirls a child make me sick,’ added another.

‘I’m getting sick of this It’s so abhorrent and nauseating watching these adults stand there clapping and cheering this on instead of putting a stop to it. Disgusting and grotesque,’ surmised Tweeted another.

It is not the only type of video to have been showcased by the TikTok account in recent months. 

Earlier this year, in another short clip, a scantily-clad drag queen performed a forward roll along a catwalk before then suggestively spreading their legs wide in a skimpy leotard – while in the presence of young kids.

The performer then thrusts their breast forward, all-the-while a young boy is merely feet away and appears to hand a tip over to another cast member.

The person behind the Libs of TikTok Facebook account – previously doxxed as Brooklyn real estate agent Chaya Raichik, was suspended from the social media platform permanently.

The anti-woke Twitter account Libs of TikTok has long shared their growing concern about children being brought to sexualized shows in the name of diversity. 

Like others before, the clip generated a visceral response online.

‘As a gay man, I disavow this entirely. This is thoroughly inappropriate and needs to stop,’ wrote Joseph Jones.

‘I don’t know how these ‘family friendly’ drag shows became so common, so fast. I feel like just a year ago this wasn’t a thing,’ said Joseph Steimle.

‘I just DO NOT understand the parents who willingly expose their kids to this crap. Nah, I don’t WANT to understand,’ said one.

‘This is super weird. These parents should be investigated,’ added another.

Similar instances have been recorded in the past including in September 2021 when a young girl was filmed tipping a drag queen baring a huge set of synthetic breasts during a ‘family-friendly’ event at a Michigan gay venue. 

The child, whose age was not disclosed, passed a bill to RuPaul’s Drag Race star Yara Sofia at Hamburger Mary’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in the clip.

She was sat on the knee of an adult woman at the time, who smiled warmly as the youngster tipped the performer, whose real name is Gabriel Burgos Ortiz.

Sofia strutted around the bar wearing a pair of large fake breasts that hung outside her costumes, complete with tiny yellow pasties covering the nipples in what appeared to be an arch attempt at modesty. 

The Grand Rapids outlet of Hamburger Mary’s closed in January of this year, but its Facebook page is still active, complete with scores of fliers for events.

Many of them are explicitly advertised as being for audiences aged 18+ only.

But the flyer for the drag event attended by Yara Sofia was not, suggesting that it may indeed have also been marketed as a ‘family-friendly’ event.

The videos of youngsters interacting with the drag queens comes as debates rage across the country about whether young children are being exposed to content that is inappropriate by well-meaning family members and educators in the name of support for LGBT equality.

New York City has been spending heavily on sending drag queens into its public elementary schools, dropping more than $200,000 on appearances since 2018. 

In May, records show the city paying $46,000 to send Drag Story Hour NYC to public schools, libraries, and street festivals, according to the New York Post.

Some parents say the programs were booked without their consent, while city officials have responded with outrage, according to the Post.

Drag Queen story-hours have also hit the headlines. They see performers read story books to children at events held in schools or libraries.

The books read to kids are children’s story books, usually by drag queens in less-revealing outfits. 

Supporters say the events are harmless and innocent, but conservatives claim the story hours often veer into age-inappropriate vulgarity.
