PORTSMOUTH, OH –  Social media is buzzing with talk about a recent Drag Queen Pride event in Waco, Texas. The event was not located at a Tractor Supply (TS) store, but TS helped to organize the Pride event which was held at Brazos Park East. 

“Why is Tractor Supply Sponsoring ‘Family Friendly’ Drag Show?” asks host Todd Starnes.

The issue: drag queens should not be entertaining children. Kids do not belong in bars, strip clubs, or at adult entertainment events.  

Why in the world would any company promote males (heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, transsexual) dressing up as females to indoctrinate, groom, and sexualize children.

You can see kids in the video clip. You can also see a support sign from Central Presbyterian Church. A Christin group was there in protest and to defend children.

I spoke with an employee at a Tractor Supply store online and asked about the DQ event. This was the reply: “All employment decisions are made on a non-discriminatory basis, and without regard to sex, race, color, age, national origin, religion, disability, pregnancy or maternity, genetic information, ancestry, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender reassignment, citizenship status, military status, or any other similarly protected status in accordance with federal, state and local laws.” 

I was given the following email ([email protected]) by the employee to contact, so I did. But no reply.

Sane and sensible adults need to speak out to protect and defend children. 

Tractor Supply has written a response regarding this event and confusion surrounding their support and/or involvement.

 We appreciate and share your concerns. Unfortunately, inaccurate information has been circulating about the event and our involvement. Along with many local employers, we had a table at the Waco Pride Network, a festival held at a local park, in October. Our goals at the event were to inform attendees about the quality careers we offer and to support the community. Before the event, the organizers assured us that it would be family-friendly with food trucks, ‘normal’ music bands, etc. and made no mention of any inappropriate entertainment. We do not condone this type of entertainment nor would we support an event that included it. We have expressed our strong concerns, frustration, and disappointment about this to the organizers.

With our mission and values at the heart of what we do, our goal is to always support the communities we service in a positive manner.  Thank you for giving us an opportunity to address your concerns and questions. We wish you and your family a happy holiday season.
