(LifeSiteNews) — A Quebec school district paid infamous drag queen performer Barbada de Barbades more than $1,000 in taxpayer money to attend a school conference.

Recently, drag performer and elementary teacher Sebastien Potvin, who goes by the stage name Barbada de Barbades, was paid $1,400 by the Centre de services scolaire de la Capitale for a one-hour, 35-minute drag conference.

The Centre de services scolaire de la Capitale, which is responsible for Quebec City schools, paid Potvin $1,400 and $209.65 went to provincial and federal sales taxes, making the total $1,609.65, according to records obtained by Rebel News.

The name of the school where the conference took place was withheld by Rebel News for journalistic reasons.

This is hardly the first time that the Quebec government has funded LGBT events to promote the LGBT lifestyle to Canadians.

Recently disclosed records show that the federal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave $12 million of taxpayer money to fund “pride” organizations and events from 2020 to 2022.

Similarly, in June the Trudeau government pledged $1.5 million in what it claims is “emergency funding” for “pride” month to organizations running parades for increased security at such events.

Quebec seems especially invested in funding LGBT events as the Quebec Bands and Symphony Orchestras Festival, a government-funded music festival, recently announced their decision to hire Potvin as the show’s host.

According to his website, Potvin says his shows are aimed to children ages 3-6, but “younger children are welcome.”

The promotion of LGBT agenda to children through drag queens is roundly condemned by Quebec politicians.

The decision to allow Potvin to host the music festival was quickly denounced by openly homosexual Eric Duhaime, leader of the provincial Conservative Party of Quebec (PCQ) who has recently doubled down on criticizing drag queen story times held in public buildings targeting kids.

He recently launched a petition called “Protect Our Children,” which asks the government to stop its funding of drag shows for kids and make sure parental consent is respected. Thus far, the petition has over 40,000 signatures.

Another Quebec-born politician, Maxime Bernier, who leads the federal People’s Party of Canada (PPC), recently blasted the “transgender madness” targeting children across Canada while also taking the time to point out the Conservative Party of Canada’s silence on the topic.

Bringing drag queens into schools and libraries seems to be the latest trend in pushing LGBT ideology on children.

Instead of backing away from the trend as public backlash grows, certain cities, including Calgary, Alberta, have opted to adopt bylaws banning the protests of such events.

LGBT activists also seem to be increasing their hostility toward those who oppose the trend.

Just recently in Calgary, pastor Derek Reimer was charged for protesting a children’s drag queen story hour at a public library. While in jail, he had his van vandalized with anti-Christian and Satanic messages.

In another recent incident during a “Transgender Day of Visibility” rally in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian father Chris Elston, while peacefully opposing gender ideology, was grabbed by the throat, thrown to the ground and punched.
