VIDEO: [CBC Kids News] The taxpayer-funded CBC features four drag queen pre-teens in a new documentary that normalizes drag, explains what it is and peddles it as a way to help children ‘be themselves.’ [July 3, 2019]
In a promo video posted to their Twitter account, the CBC attempts to make drag shows sound as if they are precisely like children playing make-believe, and then shows children gyrating, throwing their heads back and giving the camera what are supposed to be seductive looks, and dancing in a way that provocative adults might. These little children, who have perfected the model dead-eyed-with-mouth-slightly-open look, are presented as the stars of a new (again, taxpayer-funded) CBC documentary, Drag Kids.
There is a 12-old female drag queen, and an 11-year-old boy named Jason who poses as a drag queen named Susan B. Anthony. CBC featured a photo of him in the video wearing a female wig, looking over his shoulder, and waving a hand-held fan with the word Slay painted across it. A 10-year-old boy named Nemis moonlights as a drag queen with long blond hair and heavy makeup and the drag name “Lactatia.” Then there’s a nine-year-old boy named Stephan with the voice of a small child who dons thick eyeliner, lipstick, and a shaggy blond wig to transform himself into “Lady Gaga.”
Stephan, the nine-year-old, tells the adult filmmakers that drag is about “transforming from a man into a woman for entertainment,” although nobody mentions that Stephan is not a man. In fact, he is not even an adolescent – he is a child, and these ideas have obviously been planted in his head by adults, who are facilitating and assisting his transformation into a drag queen and allowing him to be exploited by the filmmakers who need “drag kids” to make their documentary.
