According to a report from Fox News, a video went viral this week showing footage from an LGBTQ pride drag performance in which the performer straddled one of the students attending the show.
The school enrolls students as young as 14-years of age.
From Fox News:
A video obtained by Libs of TikTok showed multiple adults laughing and watching a drag performer appearing to give a lap dance to a student at Forsyth Technical Community College last Wednesday.
The public college has two on-campus high school programs that begin enrollment in ninth grade. Photos posted by the school’s official Instagram account showed drag queens posing with young girls.
“These students, like all college students, are open to attend any student event,” the school said. “Forsyth Tech is committed to being a place of promise for our students. In order to fulfill that promise, we have clearly spelled out our mission, vision and equity statements.”
Promotional materials for the 2023 Pride Festival, which was held at a restaurant on campus, advertised four drag queens, a “drag performance” and “free food, drinks, music & activities.”
Forsyth Public Health Director Joshua Swift issued a statement to Fox News Digital Tuesday evening saying POSSE had spent $58 in taxpayer funds for supplies for the event, but he also disavowed “the actions that allegedly took place.”
“P.O.S.S.E, which stands for Prevent Ongoing Spread of STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections) Everywhere is an outreach section of Forsyth County’s Department of Public Health,” Swift said. “Our staff is committed to meeting the people we serve where they are. We believe we assign an appropriate amount of attention on the LGBTQIA community around education and prevention of sexually transmitted infections.”
