ST. JOSEPH COUNTY LIBRARY
The St. Joseph County Library is hosting a Queer Art Show at the Downtown Branch this Thursday at 5:30pm.
“Join us for our 3rd annual Queer Art Show. This year we are getting even bigger. The St. Joseph County Library is hosting this event at their downtown branch in South Bend. Come check out may local queer artists and maybe even by some art.” The LGBTQ Center’s website states.
The library system has been known to push the LGBTQ agenda onto children, even without parental consent. Last June, a mother interrupted “Rainbow Storytime” being held at the Virginia Tutt Library for teaching her children about transgenderism without her knowledge.
In March, RNM uncovered a story showing how the library’s Youth Librarian has been using her position to push sex and sexual ideologies onto children.
And, in April, RNM published another story about the promotion of a sexual graphic novel for children being promoted by the SJC Library System. The book includes illustrations of gay sexual acts.
GABRIZIO’S ITALIAN CAFE
Gabrizio’s Italian Cafe in Downtown Niles is hosting a lunch, snacks and coffee for the organization following the LGBTQ Center’s “Pride Ride” on June 10th.
The “Pride Ride” is a bike ride starting in South Bend, ending in Niles at the Cafe.
ARTIST RUN CAFE AT LANG LAB
South Bend’s Artist Run Cafe at Lang Lab is also hosting the child drag show organization on June 14th at 6:00pm for a “Networking and Social Mixer.”
SOUTH BEND CUBS
REAL News Michiana has learned the South Bend Cubs is also partnering with the organization that puts together drag shows for kids for the baseball club’s “Pride Night” this year. In fact, a portion of ticket sales goes right to the organization that hosts multiple drag shows for children every year.
The event is being called “Pride Night at the South Bend Cubs” and is scheduled for June 22nd.
“Take me out to the ball game!” A description of the event from the South Bend LGBTQ Center states. “It isn’t Pride month in Michiana without a trip to Four Winds Field to watch the South Bend Cubs. Show your pride and enjoy a night at the ballpark. Tickets are $12 and a portion comes back to The LGBTQ Center. Support the Center and see a great game.”
DRAG SHOWS FOR KIDS
The South Bend LGBTQ Center has been hosting drag shows for children for years. In fact, the organization has another drag show for the youth scheduled for June 9th at a local church.
The Well Coffee House, which is part of (and inside) River Park Grace Church, is hosting the “All Ages Drag Pride Edition.” According to the portal used to purchase tickets for the event, children 5 and under get in for free. While kids 6-17 get in at half price. The event goes from 6:00pm-9:00pm.
The church and LGBTQ Center held a similar Halloween themed drag show for children in October of 2022. During that event, free admission was offered to children 4-years-old and younger with children 5-17 receiving a discounted entry fee of $5. However, adults had to pay $10.
The Halloween themed event received major backlash from the public with a large protest during the show. Ironically, members of the Satanic Temple, Northern Indiana Atheists and abortion clinic volunteers provided security for the church during the protest.
Last summer, RNM broke a story about another LGBTQ Center Pride Month drag show in which a Girl Scout Troop attended. At that event, young Girl Scout members tipped the drag queens with Girl Scout cookies.
