Video has surfaced of a young child twirling on a stripper pole, assisted by a man wearing only a pair of red skimpy shorts, at July 30th's Pride Festival of Central Pennsylvania.
In a video obtained by Libs of TikTok, the child, wearing a rainbow tutu, is cheered on by a purported guardian who filmed the encounter, and who posted the video to TikTok with the text, "Central PA Pride had a pole set up with an amazing instructor to assist. My kiddo is a natural!"
In a letter obtained by Libs of TikTok, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf expressed his support of the event.
"It is my honor to join with the Pride Festival of Central Pennsylvania to celebrate their thirtieth anniversary," Wolf wrote in a statement on July 30. "I am confident that this example of conviction, compassion and camaraderie will inspire others for many years to come."
The Post Millennial has reported on the extreme rise of Pride events marketed as "family friendly" that have exposed children to inappropriate and indecent behavior and material in 2022. Fully nude adults parading in front of children in Seattle, a drag queen offering "genitals and lube" to a crowd where children were present, who saw nearly-nude men in BDSM attire whipping each other in a Los Angeles parade, and a small girl placed inside of a kink cage with a man dressed up in 'pup play' attire at a parade in Germany, are just 3 examples.
Pennsylvania's Pride Festival continues into August with a schedule of events, including TransPride Pool Summer Parties every weekend, where families with children are encouraged to come. Their Facebook page advertises a "playground nearby," a shallow pool with a "mushroom water feature" and ice cream.
