Watch: New footage from Soldotna drag show reveals that children were motioned to the front by burlesque actors


Public security camera footage obtained through a public records request shows that burlesque performers drew the children in a Soldotna park closer to the stage, encouraging them to sit right under the performing drag queens. The performance was part of a Pride Month festival in Soldotna, and the actors were from Anchorage.

During the performance on June 17, at least one drag queen was dressed in a nude-colored pair of leggings, with a thong over it, and a skirt that barely covered his bottom, giving him the appearance of near nudity. Dressed as a woman, he bent over suggestively and shook his bare-looking bottom at the audience.

Some members of the community have objected to the inappropriate nature of the burlesque show being held on a public stage paid for by taxpayers. The city manager has stated that all rules were followed, but Rep. Ron Gillham, in a Must Read Alaska Show interview, has called for the city manager to be fired for allowing children to be exploited on public property. Watch the podcast at this link.

On July 9, another such family-friendly event was held on the grounds of the Alaska Fairgrounds, cosponsored by the same group, Queen’s Guard, which produced the Soldotna event.

  1. Does Bill Walker know about this kind of grooming and pedophilia enabling? What would he say about preventing it, or not?

    • Bill Walker is THE big unions candidate. They want to take the entire Permanent Fund away from the people and hand it to their union members thru capital projects and raises.

  2. It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin…

  3. You are kidding me! The children should be taken away from such irresponsible parents. NO I do not watch porn!!!

  4. Vile. If it’s not grooming, what is it?
    And WTF is wrong with the parents?

    Clearly theses “people” are getting off on “performing” for children.

  5. You have to ask yourself why these adult men dressed scantily and dancing in a sexual way, want to expose themselves to children? This is just sick! People used to goto jail for that.

  6. Based upon the prior comments, which sum it all up, certain things never need to be discussed again because it is all too clear what is going on.

  7. If one makes any sexual comment at work- esp. if you are a male- charges likely soon follow. Why are not children afforded half of this protection from unwanted sexual advances?

  8. Just light up a tobacco cigarette – that should disperse the crowd and get the tobacco smoker thrown in jail! Snort!

  9. File criminal complaints and make LE investigate:

  10. Gentle Readers, don’t be mean.
    Child groomers and authority figures who encourage them to groom children did what they did only because the good folks of Soldotna had to let them to do it.
    All sorts of options, legal and mostly legal, would have stopped this perversity.
    But the good folks of Soldotna aren’t Antifa or Black Lives Matter, they’re not a privileged ethnocentric minority, they can’t run the trash out of their community… they’d lose their stuff, their freedom if they stopped the child grooming festival.
    So naturally they don’t think in terms of running the child molesters out of town themselves. They trusted, wrongly as it turns out, that their public safety officials would do it for them.
    And the Pride Month festival organizers knew it. That’s why they went there to do what they did. That’s why they went to Palmer. And that’s why they infest small, culturally weak towns, just because they can do so and get away with it… kind of like spruce bark beetles.
    That is, until possibly law enforcement folks could be persuaded to take a day or two off during such festivals…

  11. We live in a schizophrenic society. Radio and TV have to bleep words and TV shows now have warnings like”smoking, drinking, language, sex”. Yet having very explicit material in the classroom is okay. Fake women can pretend to shake a fake naked bottom in front of a crowd in a public venue and we are supposed to accept and celebrate that?? The saying ” Liberalism is a mental disease” has come true. How sad!

    • On TV this would have to be rated “R” and I bet you would make a big deal about parents allowing their kids to watch it. This is a public forum, not your Lazy-Boy in front of your flat screen and therefore not the appropriate venue for fake naked butts. I wonder what you would have said, if these were female performers from the local adult club. Most likely they would not have received a permit, so why are pretend women exempt?

    • Thing is that at one time it wasn’t allowed on tv either. This is why no one should trust a progressive.

    • And? That makes it somehow OK for children to see it at a public event?
      Drag has been around for decades. It was a regular part of vaudeville acts. Milton Bearle used to do it on his variety shows. Monty Python did drag in practically every episode. Even the less “humor” based drag was artistic, not sexualized.
      And, even then, the “funniest” drag was PG-13 at best. These “all ages” drag shows are R or NC-17 rated, not “all ages.”
      Would you allow your pre-teen child to watch Game of Thrones or True Blood knowing full well that 10%-20% of every episode include full nudity and extreme sexual situations? I mean, it is on TV, who cares?

  12. The queers and queens are grooming your children
    Parents, wake up, its not silly fun, its grooming.
    Grown men trying to sexualize your children.
    Wake up and stop attending.

  13. Why??? paraphilia that why. Those people belong behind bars for exposing children to their perversion, officials who allowed this included.

  14. This is so disgusting. Does the Soldotna City Manager approve of this content? Did they issue any sort of reprimand for this disgusting display? It’s one thing for the city manager to say they didn’t know this was going to happen, but now that it has happened, what do they have to say about it?

  15. The video is so cringey. It’s like the kids are worshiping a man dressed like a woman exposing himself to them. Its not simply exploitation–its abuse. Clearly the man is on a mission to recruit children. What is difficult to fathom is the state of mind of the parents.

  16. Having this transgender agenda shoved in EVERYONE’s face is SEXUAL HARASSMENT. Pure and simple.

  17. Yeah and this SAME group was up in the valley in Palmer at the Fairgrounds doing the same thing!!!
    This disgusting child endangerment must stop now. These are the things you protest against. Grooming children to think this form of mental retardation is acceptable in public like this. Would you want actual strippers in front of your children? Because it is no different and has no place at all.
    Bury them with fines! Indecency in public!

  18. Liberals love this stuff and thinks it’s perfectly ok. They see it as being “cultural” and if you argue against it your’re racist, homophobe, mean spirited, and a bad MAGA person.

  19. This perverted and disgusting behavior is widespread in Alaska. It’s prevalent in Ketchikan, Juneau and the Railbelt, and it’s celebrated by the Ketchikan and Juneau Assemblies. Alaska society is very tolerant, and because we are tolerant we see the liberals rubbing our noses in it.

  20. A repeat, but worth repeating

    The Long Path (Never trust a progressive)

    You think I look weird
    In my taffeta and beard
    Are you trying to shame
    And lay on the blame
    Or are you just scared

    When you say I’m XY
    You think I’ll cry
    Think you know my sex?
    I’m convinced it’s XX
    Look at me now; don’t be shy

    I show off my sexuality
    Take a closer look at me
    And while you preach
    It’s your children I teach
    As we get more visibility

    While you were on autopilot
    We began to riot
    We pushed for decades
    Against your tirades
    And your uneasy disquiet

    In the courts we won our gay marriage
    That you vehemently disparaged
    Despite your protest
    We were able to wrest
    From your cries of judicial miscarriage

    Girls mightily fought for their right
    In a hard-won Title IX fight
    Now watch as the swimmers
    Futures become dimmer
    As a trans pushes them out of sight

    You try to legislate
    With Don’t Say Gay hate
    But we’ll find another way
    While your child is at play
    A preordained fate

    You’re losing control
    Of your own children’s soul
    As we pervade
    Even Disney’s Parade
    Your kid’s world is our goal

    We’re in your schools
    And your backyard pools
    Even your libraries
    7 of storyful faeries
    Playing you for fools

    There’s less and less doubt
    Since you’ve let us out
    As we gain inch by inch
    It’s becoming a cinch
    Just look at our clout

    You’d like us just gone
    From your daughter and son
    As our goals become clear
    The thing you most fear
    Is that we’ve already won

  21. Is there someone with legal knowledge who can comment on whether it is against the law to perform simulated sex acts in front of minors? This is disgusting for sure, but is it against the law? If it was against the law, who can report this incident? Would it have to be someone who was at the event?
