One Millions Moms, the conservative group that describes itself as "fed up with the filth [of] many segments of our society," has now launched a petition against grocer Whole Foods for sponsoring a Drag Queen Story Hour.
The event was recently held in Atlanta's City Hall, with Mayor Keisha Bottoms in attendance, according to One Million Mom's petition. Adults, including drag queen Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker, read books to children, who appear happy and engaged in a photo included on the One Million Mom's petition.
But this is how the group described the event:
"A retailer that once promoted organics and clean food is now saturated in absolute filth, exploiting America's children to be 'groomed' by drag queens. Whole Foods Market is now sponsoring a Drag Queen Story Hour event to indoctrinate children into transgenderism and homosexuality. Their goal is to normalize the LGBTQ lifestyle."
One Million Moms calls Drag Queen Story Hour "disturbing events [that] involve men dressed up as garishly adorned women who read LGBTQ-themed books to young children under the guise of performing a public service. Some drag queens have admitted their goal is to 'groom' the next generation."
The conservative group doesn't cite a source for their claim about drag queens "grooming" children. Also the books read to children at such events are rarely LGBTQ-themed.
One Millions Moms' petition — which demands the company cancel sponsorships of drag events or face an immediate boycott — has been signed by nearly 7,800 people as of mid-day Friday. The group recently boycotted Toy Story 4 for a blink-or-you'll-miss-it scene that they interpreted as promoting lesbianism.
