Letters: Dungarvan Pride - Drag Queen explicit behaviour at "fun for all ages" event

Dungarvan Pride Festival Walton Park

On Saturday 18th of June , Dungarvan in County Waterford held its first Pride Festival at Walton Park.

The event which was sponsored by Waterford City/County Council and GSK Dungarvan , was billed as "fun for all ages" and described as "an event for everyone" by Emilene Stafford co-chair of the Pride committee , with children's activities such as face painting and balloon modelling and a dance performance by the kirby school of performing arts


The dominant theme of the event was that of Drag Queens (Men who like to dress in Women's clothes and perform in public) with the main feature being a performance by the Drag Queen group dream girls.

Opening the festival was a local Drag Queen named Lady Fifi Fondue who appeared at around 4pm in front of an audience which included young children.

In a video of his performance (since removed) Lady Fifi Fondue is filmed lifting his dress to his waste and exposing something to children , its unclear from the image whether this was knickers or something else but the video was since removed and regardless its not something anyone would consider appropriate for a grown man to be showing this area of his undergarments to young children at 4pm in the afternoon.
 
Drag Queen Lady Fifi Fondue at Dungarvan Pride Festival

Sadly , explicit performances by drag queens in front of children has become all to frequent in many countries with Drag Queen Story hours in schools and libraries often presenting explicit material and ideas to young children. 

In 2019 ,  it was revealed how a Drag Queen Group named "Glitter Hole" had been booked by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Libraries to read stories to 3 year old children . It emerged that the group were an Adult based sex show that performed explicit material in nightclubs and did not have any garda vetting to work with children . Following complaints by concerned parents , the event was eventually cancelled.
 


Similar Stories have been emerging accross the world , from the USA to Australia and protests against these events have become a common occurance in recent years .  In the video below Students from Brisbane Square University of Queensland's protest against a Drag Queen event aimed at children at Brisbane library , the students chant - "drag queens are not for kids" .

the drag queen scene is a kinda sex fetish , men getting a kick out of dressing as women, why anyone would bring children to that is beyond me.
^
