Sydney Zuyus filed for school board in the heart of the conservative Mat-Su Valley, and then has proceeded to use social media to reveal her positions in what some see as a passive-aggressive way
It turns out, Zuyus is a big supporter of the Trevor Project, which is a transgender support nonprofit providing transgender services, secret counseling, and legal support to children — a lot of it without parental consent.
And anyone who opposes Zuyus — beware: She proceeded to make donations to the Trevor Project and GLAAD in honor of a constituent who dares to disagree with her positions. GLAAD is the Gay Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, a media-monitoring nonprofit.
The Trevor Project was caught in a sting set up by a mother, who posed as a 15-year-old in order to see what kind of grooming was happening.
“A mother who is dealing with her own child’s gender dysphoria posed as a 15-year-old gender dysphoric biological female to access services online with the Trevor Project on Sunday. She found that every step of the way, she was guided further and further into affirmation of being trans, with no stop gaps along the way where a kid could be told that maybe they weren’t trans, and should take a moment to think about it,” according to the account documented at The Post Millennial.
“The mother, referred to here as Gloria though that’s not her real name, presented herself as confused about many things, but sure of being “not cishet,” and interested in knowing more about detransitioning.What emerged in the online chat with a representative from the Trevor Project was advocacy for transitioning, no information about detransitioning, and apparent certainty in the face of an uncertain teen who didn’t know where to go for help,” the website wrote.
The Trevor Project guided Gloria to resources on hormones, including how to get them without parental awareness, chest binding, and an introduction into a community of teen transitioners.
“My child spent a lot of time on The Trevor Project website when she first asserted a ‘transboy’ gender identity around age 12,” Gloria told The Post Millennial. “She also spent a lot of time on Tumblr, Discord and other sites at the time. I had no idea they were actively grooming my child into trans ideology and a new belief system.”
Zuyus, who is running hard from the left on issues involving transgenders in the school setting, is trying to unseat conservative incumbent Kathy McCullom.
Zuyus is a communications professional at the Mat-Su Health Foundation, and yet has chosen to taunt voters who support parental rights.
While it’s uncommon for candidates to aggressively engage those who disagree with their positions by donating to causes simply as a way to badger and silence people, it’s not unheard of. In 2021, now-Sen. Forrest Dunbar made a donation in the name of Must Read Alaska’s publisher Suzanne Downing to “Choosing Our Roots,” another organization that assists children in choosing a gender alternative path by providing them shelter and other services.
Zuyus is supported by the teacher’s union, and the majority of her donations come from teachers.
Two years ago, Zuyus made a video of herself, proclaiming to be a Snake Queen:
Those who criticized Zuyus for it also received a dollop of her ire on social media:
“OOooOOoOoOoo, get ready, folks! They found me out!,” she wrote. “Via a time-lapse video of an illustration I did I don’t even know how many years ago, you all now know I am a Snake Queen! (See the aforementioned snake below).
“Mat-Su Freedom Alliance, please, I beg of you, do NOT let your graphic designer quit their day job. However, I’ll give you points for comedic value. Not a ton of points but hey. Workshop it, you’ll get there. “
It was apparently Zuyus’ way of deflecting the point that was being made by critics, who were taking interest in the candidate’s recent works of art and personal expression, and making sure voters were not being fooled by her attempt to appear conservative.
Also running from the Left for school board is Dianne Shibe, who is trying to unseat conservative incumbent Richard “Ole” Larson. Shibe is the former president of MSEA and has one of the largest campaign war chests in the state, with $38,227.59 reported in her 30-day report with Alaska Public Offices Commission. Most of her donations are from unions or from outside the Mat-Su, and outside the state.
