(LifeSiteNews) — A Democrat state senator is “proud” to have sponsored a Planned Parenthood-backed “queer prom” featuring drag performances and sex paraphernalia for minors, even after the full extent of the event was made public.
On Sunday, left-wing extremism watchdog account Libs of TikTok highlighted a video of a drag performance at a “queer prom” hosted by the Planned Parenthood-sponsored youth program Rainbow Room in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, as well as the facts that underage attendees were given gift bags containing condoms, lubricant, and Planned Parenthood informational material, and that Democrat state Sen. Steve Santarsiero was listed as a sponsor.
Planned Parenthood bills its Rainbow Rooms as “safe space[s] where you can feel empowered and know that you’re getting accurate information about relationships, sex, and more.”
Fox News reports that the event was open to children as young as 14, and that the gift bags also contained dental dams and latex dams, and that attendees were also given tarot cards, candy, a pendant, a “progress pride” flag, and a Planned Parenthood bracelet.
There are countless reasons to conclude modern sex-education is less about critical thinking and more about indoctrinating and sexualizing children at as young an age as possible.
Consider these 3 questions:
- Why are politicians around the world pushing radical transgender theories on children as young as 5?
- Why is the World Health Organization calling for 4 year-olds to be taught how to masturbate?
- Why are children in schools being shown graphic images of sex and told anything goes so long as consent is established, if not to encourage our sons and daughters to become sexually active?
A sane society would try to shield impressionable children from becoming sexualized, and encourage them not to watch pornography, take puberty blockers or mutilate their genitalia, but our schools increasingly promote these behaviors.
In reality, the media, most politicians, and many education chiefs are obliterating a parent's ability to protect their child's innocence and identity.
We must realize: these elites want children to have THEIR values, not YOURS. SIGN THE PLEDGE!
The results of this explicit, inappropriate sex-saturated culture and education have been startling: there have never been more children claiming to be transgender, gay, lesbian and bisexual, nor have we ever seen such high levels of sexual assaults by minors.

This nut could end up being your child’s teacher and you wouldn’t even find out the craziness they’re teaching until your kid tells you about it. If you aren’t disturbed after watching this, you’re a lunatic. School choice is the civil rights issue of our generation. pic.twitter.com/y1V3Rotx9k— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) August 17, 2021
Countless politicians, media personalities and education chiefs are too busy promoting woke trends to realize that sexualizing minors amounts to grooming, and has devastating consequences in many cases.
Children whose inhibitions are broken down risk addiction to pornography, teenage pregnancy, STDs, gender dysphoria, online shaming, and a whole host of other negative outcomes.
Parents, not the government, must be in control of what their child is taught about sex.
Just listen to the type of materials public schools in the U.S. are promoting:
That's why we are asking you to sign the Parents' Pledge that you will pull your children out of sex-education classes if your school chooses to sexualize your child.
The Parents' Pledge is our best chance of winning back our children's schools before they're entirely lost to radical sex-obsessed teachers' unions who are foisting these curricula on teachers.
Do you really want other adults deciding what your child is exposed to? Of course not.
Please share this brand new grassroots Parents' Pledge with like-minded parents and join a growing movement of mothers and fathers who are wise to the threat of their child being led into sexual activity.

When asked for comment, Santarsiero told Fox that he was “proud to support the Rainbow Room’s annual Queer Prom for LGBTQ youth. I will continue to do so,” though he did not respond to a follow-up about the specific items given to children.
On his website, Santarsiero issued a blistering defense of the prom and an attack on its critics, explaining that he supported it as a parent of a son who “had come out as gay about 8 months before and was excited to attend the prom with his friends.”
“In any event, I am not aware of any parent of the students who attended the 2022 Queer Prom (and there were over 30 parents there as chaperones), who objected to any aspect of it, either beforehand or afterward,” the senator said. “That would include the much-decried swag bags, which included, among other things, condoms, ‘lube’, and, perhaps most scandalous for some, information about Planned Parenthood.”
Santarsiero did not elaborate on how he or other parents determined that giving minors condoms and lubricant was appropriate.
Fox notes that Planned Parenthood sex education personnel, such as PP Center for Sex Education executive director Bill Taverner and PP sex educator Mariah Caudillo have a publicly documented history of encouraging underage students to “explore” sexuality.
