Skip to comments.Air Force Says Drag Acts Symbolize Gay Pride
Posted on 08/10/2013 8:23:07 AM PDT by ilovesarah2012
The U.S. Air Force said that a well-known drag queen group was invited to perform on base during a Diversity Day celebration because drag is a symbol of gay pride and unity. But the performance sparked outrage among some airmen who called the drag show totally offensive and inappropriate.
Jewels and the Brunchettes performed to a small crowd at the Los Angeles Air Force Base on Aug. 8, the military confirmed. Photographs provided to Fox News show an individual wearing a giant wig and sporting form-fitting dresses performing to a sparse crowd underneath the American flag.
Drag acts to this day represent the struggle for freedom and equality of the LGBT community, while at the same time providing a deep-rooted historical form of entertainment for the LGBT culture, said Peggy Hodge, a spokesperson for the Office of Public Affairs. The military said the drag queen group did not include any members of the Air Force.
Drag queen acts are historically one of the main forms of entertainment in the LGBT culture, having its roots in the earliest of days of the gay rights movement, Hodge said in a written statement.

Meanwhile, I read on another thread that it’s important to keep supporting our military regardless of these new developments. Why?
Gonna be rammed down their “throats” until they submit dammit../sarc
Isaiah 3:2 does say that the “mighty man and the man of war” would be taken away from a disobedient nation.
We deserve plagues.
Oh, but this doesn’t affect our military’s professionalism or readiness or anything...some general said so. Probably some general with his hand up some bimbos skirt.../s
What a crying shame the military has been reduced to this.
I go out of my way to thank service members for their service. Maybe I should start adding, “... and I feel sorry for you.”
It sickens me to see the changes just since I retired in 2008. Was it really only 5 years ago? Did America change that much?!!!!
I no longer recognize my own country. Ready to move to Moscow.
America has truly given itself over to evil.
We are an active duty officer’s family, just trying to hang on for the next couple of years to get 30 yrs. in.
Whatever happened to my Jesusland Michael Moore promised me?
If a performing drag queen group celebrates LGBT pride, then what about that film clip of Lucy and Ethyl working in the candy factory, packing fudge? Is that representative too?
Disgusting to implicitly compare this with Blacks being beaten, hosed and murdered in their "struggle for freedom and equality".
Drag does symbolize homosexuality which is proof homosexuality is a mental disorder and should have nothing to do with the military. Freaks and retards should be nowhere near the military.
Wait till these things are made mandatory. That and gay preference in promotions. It’s coming. Glad I retired long ago.
I suppose next up on the hit parade is live animal sacrifices on base to celebrate Eid al Adha. Can’t have any fringe minority group feeling left out.
v4 Mere youths without experience will become officials and leaders.
v5 Families will quarrel. Neighbours will fight each other. Youths will insult old people. And nobody will respect those who deserve honour.
v6 A man will seize one of his brothers and say to him: You still have a coat. You be our leader. Take up responsibility for this heap of stones.
v7 But the brother will refuse. I have no solution to our troubles. I have no food or clothes at home. Do not make me the leader.
v8 Both national and local government have completely broken down. This is because peoples evil words and actions have made the *Lord their enemy.
v9 But they talk proudly about their wicked lives, as the inhabitants of Sodom used to do. Such people bring great trouble upon themselves.
v10 Some people obey God and live good lives. Tell those people that God will reward them.
v11 But some people do not obey God. Tell those people that they will suffer. What they have done to other people, other people will do to them.
v12 My people! Your leaders are fools. They are as weak as women. They are as silly as children. Your leaders are taking you away from God.
Just think of them flying multibillion dollar airplanes with nuclear armaments in their control.
And, if anyone dares to attack us, we’ll scratch their eyes out!
If the US military had a spiteful, morally corrupt marxist as its commander & chief it’d look like this.
We can’t be ready.
Why not play re-runs of “House” and offer commentary at the end about how being a drug addict can actually enhance ones intelligence while simultaneously taking advantage of anyone within within his sphere of influence.
All acts of one’s volition.
This is the Left’s and the Communist’s dream—destruction of the American military’s moral power and cohesiveness.
And it all happened faster then any of them, or us, dreamed.
Despicable actions such as this are designed to weed out Christians from our military. Without those moral Christians, the feral government will be able to count on paid killers to do whatever those in power decide will extend their power. There will be no one to protest that, “we ought to obey God rather than men.”
I think we need to get the name of the col./general under whose command this was allowed to take place. Once we have his name, we can give him the credit he is due for this innovation.
Why support our troops? Because it was, as the journalist described it, "a small crowd". Our military is led by an evil, anti-American pervert, but most members of our military are still the decent, honorable people we served with. They have my support.
Interesting photo...he was gay in real life.
I retired about 1 1/2 years ago, and we had to go to sensitivity training for queers.
Given the culture, particularly the drug culture, it’s hard to see how a homosexual can get into the military, much less obtain a security clearance. The whole system is going to have to be “dumbed down” to accommodate them.
Why not play movies every Friday evening showing Jihadi’s exploring and getting in touch with their inner self, expressing themselves outwardly as they regularly engage in the age old practice of bestiality as they seek gratification they can’t experience with a real live and loving woman.
I can see it now:
“Ahmed falls for Ole Blue. One mans adventure of objectified passions”
Makes me physically ill to think about what Obama is doing to our country and our military. All part of his plan.
Take me into the wild blue yonder,ducky!
ALL OF THIS IS AN EFFORT TO DESTABLIZE THE ARMED FORCES
BY THIS COMMUNIST ADMINISTRATION!
FDRQ delenda est...
Jewels and the Munchettes...there, fixed it.
A couple of days ago, my oldest daughter (former USMC) asked me, “Whoever would have thought Russia would become the good guys?”
Moscow is looking better and better.
My brother just retired after 20. Are the bene’s better after 30?
Their so-called Freedom and equality takes away my right not to be harassed by these creeps. Russia got it right!!
I’ll believe that sodomites calling for “unity” is INCLUSIVE when “heterosexuality” gets added to all of the GBLTXYZQ lexicon.
They are boosting their numbers, pushing for quota based advancements, gay bars, gay support groups, gay based awards, etc. So much for “diversity and unity”.
Faggots want supremacy over “breeders”.
Here's an interesting point, I DIDN"T know that which leads to me another interesting point, he kept it to HIMSELF!
You mean down some himbo's pants.
I did a fascinating paper on the subject for a college Abnormal Psych class. Drag queens are not, for the most part, homosexual. Look at the Monty Python sketches or someone like Dame Edna Everage.
That is not to say that all drag acts are harmless satires. The Judy Garland/Cher/Marilyn Monroe imitators are spooky. They identify very strongly with their idols, and seek to become them, even across gender lines. Which to me is a little bit pathological. But even then, the phenomenon isn't sexual. It's twisted, to be sure, but not intended to be erotic (unless the subject character is known for her eroticism).
All that said, I fail to see what this kind of act is doing at a US military installation. It's one thing in the red light district, but another altogether where it's sponsored by our tax dollars and staged on a government post.
LAAFB has always been called the Hollywood Air Force.
All this nonsense would be understandable in an instant if one “journalist” simply asked Obama “Are you a homosexual, Sir?”.
A bikini pinup poster on base “creates a hostile environment” but men making lecherous comments at other men in “sexy” dresses does NOT “create a hostile environment”. BULLSTALIN.
