Antifa, trans activists clash with protestors opposing drag story hour event at London's Tate Museum
( Post Millennial )
Left-wing LGBTQ activists clashed with protestors who were standing against the Drag Queen Story Hour UK event at London's Tate museum on Saturday, leading to police intervention when individuals from the two groups began to fight.
Drag queen "Aida H. Dee," otherwise known as Sab Samuel, is the founder of Drag Queen Story Hour UK as well as the performer booked at the Tate Britain event, and has come into question after a Reduxx report that he has connections to a pedophile. On January 23, Samuel launched a fundraiser for the funeral of his deceased friend and fellow drag queen, Darren Moore, who was previously convicted of four counts of rape of a boy under 14.
Before the event began, Samuel complained of being the victim of a "hate crime" — being called a "pedophile."
Protestors outside the historic London art gallery while the drag performer and children were inside were seen carrying signs reading "No drag for kids!" and "Leave our kids alone!" On the other side of the spectrum, counter-protestors held signs saying "Don't let the far right divide us" and "Trans rights now."
Video footage obtained by The Post Millennial's Andy Ngo shows protestors getting into physical altercations on the steps leading up to the museum as police attempted to keep the peace.
According to GBN, around 60 protestors in total were outside the Tate building.
Just one person was arrested, "on suspicion of making a racially aggravated comment towards a police officer," the outlet reported.
British Antifa activists from the "London Anti-Fascist Assembly" as well as the far-left "Transgender Action Block" appeared to organize against those concerned with the pedo-friendly drag performer reading to children.
"These people are dangerous, so make sure you're not identifiable, and travelling in safely," posted Transgender Action Block to Twitter along with a graphic instructing sympathizers to "bring a friend, wear masks, dress nondescript, keep each other safe."
The London Anti-Fascist Assembly posted detailed instructions to its followers on how to conceal their identities while protesting, including how to conceal your face and dress inconspicuously.
Baroness Emma Harriet Nicholson, a Conservative politician, wrote a letter to the chairman of the Tate museums to denounce the drag performance for kids.
In it, she wrote, "Having adults read to children is a wonderful thing, of course, but why does it have to be a man pretending to be a woman?"
"Why does it have to be a man who posts on Facebook about anal sex and orgies pretending to be a woman? Why does it have to be a man who posts on Facebook about anal sex and orgies, with photographs of themselves in a 'Daddy' t-shirt, pretending to be a woman?," the Baroness continued.
"Why does it have to be a man who posts on Facebook about anal sex and orgies pretending to be a woman? Why does it have to be a man who posts on Facebook about anal sex and orgies, with photographs of themselves in a 'Daddy' t-shirt, whose mission is to be a 'role model… for young, queer people" pretending to be a woman?"
She continued, calling the whole thing "nonsense on stilts," and asking if it would be acceptable for children to be entertained by "murderers, pedophiles, terrorists, furries, and other fetishists."
According to Samuel's page, five "haters" made it into the museum and caused a "disruption," somewhere else in the building, but the show went "swimmingly."
The image of the performance the drag queen posted along with it showed him dressed in a rainbow, sequined jumpsuit and a tall pink and purple wig.
