A Democratic state senator was blasted as a “groomer” and “depraved” for boasting about supporting a drag queen event for minors.

Democratic Pennsylvania State Sen. Steve Santarsiero on Thursday posted on Twitter a letter he sent to all state senators in response to proposed legislation that seeks to ban drag shows on public property or in areas seen by minors.

Santarsiero began by saying that he disagrees with the proposed anti-drag show legislation and then proceeded to say that he takes particular exception to “the distorted characterization” of a drag queen event that he sponsored. The event occurred at a Planned Parenthood-sponsored youth program called the “Rainbow Room,” which is located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

“I take particular exception to his distorted characterization of the Rainbow Room’s Queer Prom, a dance specifically arranged for LGBTQ+ youth in Bucks County,” he said.

“The Rainbow Room, which Planned Parenthood established over 20 years ago to be a safe place for LGTQ+ youth to come together and build self-esteem, first held the prom in February 2020,” he added.

“So, having an organization like the Rainbow Room and an event like the Queer Prom can very literally save the lives of kids who otherwise experience feelings of depression and isolation,” I can share from personal experience that Ronni and I are deeply indebted to the Rainbow Room for how it helped our son on the road to becoming the confident young man that he is,” he continued.

Santarsiero’s post was met with sweeping backlash:

One user wrote, “You are the most depraved Senator I have met. You sponsored a Drag queen show for 13 year old and gift bag that contains condoms, planned parenthood???? You are a pathetic individual to actually sponsor that! Unless this is a lie, I will make sure other minority voters see this.”

“Resign!!!” another exclaimed.

“The issue isn’t whether to support LGBTQ youth. We all want them supported. We also want them kept safe, we don’t want them exposed to grossly inappropriate things for their ages, and we don’t want them reduced to nothing but their sexuality,” one person said.

“Ok groomer,” another jested.

“Not a good look to support grooming,” one person added.

“I am gay & a former gay youth, & I was horrified to see a video of a Rainbow Room director/ consultant engaging in vicious racist attacks on all white people. White LGB youth deserve a safe space where they are not subject to a hostile environment. You made a terrible mistake,” another responded.

  1. There should be a white’s only safe room as this disgusting show of racism that the left have brought on!!! Yes there is racism against white people that will go down in history!!!! How did we get here

  2. How is this any different from having exotic dancers perform for boys and girls? It’s all sexual based performance that is inappropriate for children. Wake up parents. It isn’t a clown show.

  3. Does anyone see a resemblance of this country to Sodom and Gomorrah it speaks of in the Bible? That is where it is headed! If you are a Christian, you need to PRAY and make sure your walk with God is in order, if you know what I mean. This place is going down the tubes so fast it’s a blur! When they start targeting children with this filth, the end doesn’t seem too far off. I myself, find it hard to watch and hear on a daily basis because it is disturbing and disgusting, but I want to be informed! Some people say, “well I just don’t listen to the news.” Well, you better not ignore current events! The Lord’s Word says to watch to know what time it is!!

    • Absolutely with you on that!! I’ve been saying the same thing to everyone that will listen. I can’t stand it either, but we need to be aware of what’s happening and see it through a Biblical perspective, as you’ve said. God is watching . . .

  4. Lgbtq is the single worst thing to happen to America perhaps second to abortion anyway. I can’t think of anything more damaging to our children and the spirit of the nation as a whole than lgbtq

  5. That’s pathetic that we can’t even agree on what a boy and a girl is. What marriage is. And and that not everyone is straight. The lgbtq community only cares about sexuality, that’s what defines them that’s their identity. That’s how they Define themselves anyway. Not their character not their personality. Their morals values and beliefs stems strictly from their sexual identity or sexual orientation. They have no life outside of their lgbtq-ness
