“When parents, voters, and political leaders understand the true nature of Drag Queen Story Hour and the ideology that drives it, they will work quickly to restore the limits that have been temporarily—and recklessly—abandoned. They will draw a bright line between adult sexuality and childhood innocence, and send the perversions of “genderfuck,” “primitivism,” and “degeneracy” back to the margins, where they belong.“
“Advocates of Drag Queen Story Hour might reply that these are outlier cases and that many of the child-oriented events feature drag queens reading books and talking about gender, not engaging in sexualized performances. But the spirit of drag is predicated on the transgressive sexual element and the ideology of queer theory, which cannot be erased by switching the context and softening the language. The philosophical and political project of queer theory has always been to dethrone traditional heterosexual culture and elevate what Rubin called the “sexual caste” at the bottom of the hierarchy: the transsexual, the transvestite, the fetishist, the sadomasochist, the prostitute, the porn star, and the pedophile. Drag Queen Story Hour can attempt to sanitize the routines and run criminal background checks on its performers, but the subculture of queer theory will always attract men who want to follow the ideology to its conclusions.”

Here is an online form to send message to Mayor and Council:
If you have a quick minute, consider writing to some, or all of the sponsors on the list.
Maybe there can be a cancelation for this event, or for AT LEAST the all ages part of it.
Drag has its place, may it be for you and not for me, it does not matter… but when kids or politics are brought into it, it is no longer appropriate.. ESPECIALLY with the children.
A couple letters already written by people who want to Protect Childhood Innocence:
I am writing to you today in regards to your sponsorship of the “Sparkle Tour” taking place May 19, 2023. I couldn’t help but notice one of the shows is for all ages.
I am surprised that you would be so presumptuous as to think that the majority of your customer base would support the overt sexualization of young boys and girls.
I, along with many multitudes of people in this province and country find it highly offensive that it is considered amusing and fitting entertainment to “impersonate a female” by producing such a grotesque characature of a woman in a most objectified way, so as there is nothing left but sexualization. No beauty, no grace, no dignity, no value.
I want to let you know that as a woman, a wife and a mother I am deeply disturbed by this form of entertainment.
Do the women in your life dress, do their makeup and behave as these men dressed as supposed women do? Does your wife, or your mother, maybe your daughter or grandmother cast aside true femininity for such a cheap parody of reality? Do they all go about dressed up like whores??
There is no dignity in this. You are inviting all ages but especially young children to learn the art of the degradation and mockery of every noble virtue of what it is to be a woman.
I would suggest a careful study of the last 100 years of family friendly fundraising events could give you a great many ideas of appropriate events to throw your support behind instead.
I REALLY hope that you will reconsider before going ahead with this. You don’t stand to lose billions…but how much are you willing to wager on this venture?

Dear Jeremy and anyone else at RedArrow:
I just today learned about the May 19th ‘Sparkle Tour’ drag queen event at the Eagles Hall in Duncan THAT INCLUDES CHILDREN and that Red Arrow Brewery appears as a sponsor. I’m curious if your company really put a lot of effort into thinking this through, particularly in light of the recent historic and dramatic fall of Bud Light and Jack Daniels for their support of drag, let alone drag indoctrinating children!
I for one (and suspect there are many others) will immediately and thoroughly spread the word far and wide across the valley and beyond on social media that this drag queen event, which includes children, is being sponsored by Red Arrow – a local company that I used to support and be very proud of. Most unfortunately, that ended today.
Canada was founded on Christian principles and will remain founded on Christian principles.
It’s never too late to do the right thing — well, until it’s too late-
Food for thought!
We add our concern to the several email/letters/calls you have received about sponsoring the Drag Queen Event at the Eagles. We encourage you to re-think this decision.
We will admit to having gone to a drag queen show 15 years ago in Mexico, as mature adults.
We have spent time with transgenders; we have G & L friends. None of them agree with this blatant display sensationizing their personal choices, especially with children; nor the govt. propaganda and clumping 2SLGBTQ??? all together.
In light of the recent political and educational propaganda that is negatively impacting the emotional, mental and physical health of every child around “gender identity”, especially in BC, Canada and the US, we would now consider any support as being ignorant and subversive.
This is an educated position we have come to after studying the SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) issue.
If you are not aware of SOGI and it’s actions in the school system; we suggest you educate yourself on what is being jammed down children’s throats from age 3, by our provincial, federal & global governments.
If you have children, if you have grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or if you know any children you care about, you owe it to them to take some time to understand.
It is not too late to withdraw your support, by simply stating,”after further study of SOGI educational policies, we have reversed our support. This has nothing to do with Queens or Transgender, this has to do with govt. propaganda and the health of our children & patrons.”
Perhaps your withdrawal of support will cause the event to be cancelled, as with the NDP Frag Queen event at Cobble Hill FAMILY Hall.
The adults need to become aware of the unhealthy grooming for the sake of ALL children.
These other 2 letters also present intelligent facts., we hope you have considered.
We are including Just Jake’s as they have shares in/ partnership with Red Arrow.
