Children dressing up as drag queens in America isn’t new anymore.
But a video shockingly shows the trend dipping to a new low, featuring an 11-year-old “drag kid” apparently under the influence of ketamine.
That’s a drug that properly is used for anesthesia but illegally as a “date rape” drug and more. It’s a hallucinogen that gives a person a feeling of detachment from reality.

WND reported Wednesday the child, Desmond Napoles, whose stage name is “Desmond is Amazing,” is part of a venture with the Converse shoe company to parnter “with 6 individuals connected to the LGBTQ+ community who show the power of expressing one’s true self.”
Matt Walsh, who posted the video on the blog RedState, wrote: “11-year old drag kid demonstrates snorting ketamine. Why would anyone think this healthy?”
A Twitter user weighed in, “This is child abuse and all these guys need to be arrested and put in prison.”
The 11-year-old has been widely promoted, including on “Good Morning America,” RedState said.
“Children have been taken away from parents for far, far less than this,” the blog said. “That’s not to say all those cases are legitimate and that the government doesn’t overstep at times, but in this case you’ve got an 11 year old who’s clearly being emotionally and mentally abused. He’s also being exposed to dangerous lifestyles, hanging out with mentally ill men who like to dress like women, do illicit drugs, and take naked pictures with minors. There’s nothing normal, safe, or healthy about this.”
The blog also mentioned another child drag queen, “Queen Lactatia,” who was photographed, dressed as a girl, with a nearly nude made.

I worked on child-protection legislation in 15 states and federally.
This is absolutely child pornography. These people are sick depraved criminals. https://t.co/DjuTechsIn

John Cardillo, who said he has worked on child-protection legislation both at the state and federal level, concluded, “This is absolutely child pornography.”
Noted Redstate, “Disgusting is too mellow of a word for this, as things have only gotten more disturbing as time has progressed.”
“The video is tough to watch because of just how sad it is to see a child abused like this. No kid is naturally this way. This is learned behavior pushed by his parents who have a desperate desire to be famous. His mother, who’s been promoted along side him, is an awful parent who has no business retaining custody of her child at this point,” the report continued.

WND columnist Michael Brown wrote in December that while he’s not likening a gay lifestyle to pedophilia, nevertheless, “the connection between homosexuality and ‘intergenerational intimacy’ remains alive and well, as it has through gay history. There’s no denying it now.”
He pointed out that that the pro-family group MassResistance has documented the abuses taking place between gay adults and minors, “especially in school-based GSA’s (Gay Straight Alliances; see here and here and here).”
But there’s been no protest from the gay community at large.
And he pointed out that “in the wake of the new perverted fad of drag queens reading stories to toddlers and little children, one of the readers, Dylan Pontiff (aka Santana Pilar Andrews) made this stunning statement at a city council meeting: ‘This is going to be the grooming of the next generation. We are trying to groom the next generation.” (By the way, if you were in the least bit offended by this statement as a parent, that proved you were a hater.)'”
He pointed to a Daily Wire report about the 11-year-old “Desmond is Amazing,” Desmond Napoles, dressing up “as a Gwen Stefani-lookalike – full drag make up, a blonde wig, and crop top included – as he bounced around onstage to No Doubt’s ‘Like a Girl’ and collected dollar bills from male adults viewing the number.”
Outraged radio host Mike Hendren said: “In any other form, we’d call this pedophilia. Yet this is being hailed as something groundbreaking and even celebratory.”
