Charlotte Pride event features scantily clad adults teaching children to pole dance
( Post Millennial )
Video has emerged from a Charlotte, North Carolina pride event earlier this month that showing a small child wedged between a scantily clad woman and a stripper pole spinning around in front of a crowd of onlookers.
Libs of TikTok posted the clip and tweeted, "Oops! Looks like the Charlotte pride event wasn’t so 'family-friendly' after all."

The instance of Charlotte's pride event is another entry in a long series of pride events where children are exposed to overtly sexualized content.

In June, The Post Millennial revealed that children at the Toronto Pride Parade were spotted next to a group of grown men dancing in nothing but speedos, and other children watched the on sidelines as multiple naked parties paraded down the street. In one instance the children were subjected to watching a naked man in a Bugs Bunny mask and fluffy white slippers slowly hopping down the street.
In just the past three months alone, there have been numerous instances of children being placed in unsafe sexual environments, forced to watch naked adults, or otherwise inappropriate circumstances at pride events across the country. These include the Washington, DC pride event, Seattle pride, Idaho, and Pennsylvania.
The incident in Pennsylvania was similar to Charlotte where Libs of TikTok posted video of a young child twirling on a stripper pole, assisted by a man wearing only a pair of red skimpy shorts.
The organizers of the Pennsylvania event told Fox News they stood by the stripper pole child lesson and said it was "nothing more than a vehicle of fun and exercise."
Reactions to the Charlotte event were quick to come in on Twitter.

"If you’re wondering, this is why drag queen story hour isn’t a blessing of liberty. Slippery slopes are real and it’s in the public interest to protect children from perversion," wrote Megan Basham.

Last week the Biden administration announced they would be sending monkeypox vaccines to the Charlotte event, along with pride events throughout the country.
