Boise, Idaho: Businesses ‘Jump Ship’ (as Event Sponsors) When Minors Perform in Drag

BREAKING: Per the Idaho Capital Sun,
“@IdahoPower
has withdrawn its sponsorship for the City of Boise’s Pride festival, which has advertised performances by child drag queens as young as 11.”

At least three sponsors (that we know of) ‘bailed’ from sponsoring the Boise ‘Pride Event’ once they were aware of minors performing in ‘Drag.’ (It seemed to be a good idea until it WASN’T). Nothing speaks fear like minors in Drag.

“At least three companies or organizations sponsoring this weekend’s Boise Pride Festival have withdrawn their participation from the event as Idaho Republican Party Chairwoman Dorothy Moon called on supporters to contact the festival’s sponsors and remove their financial support from those sponsors. 

Zions Bank, Idaho Power and the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare were sponsors of Boise Pride Festival but withdrew their participation after Moon began issuing a series of statements condemning children’s participation in the event on Wednesday.”

Idaho Republican Party lists phone numbers of Boise Pride Festival sponsors in statements

Moon issued three public statements regarding Boise Pride Festival between Wednesday and Thursday. In one of Thursday’s statements, Moon listed the phone numbers of 20 companies or organizations sponsoring the Boise Pride Festival. Moon called on Idahoans to call the companies, express their disappointment in sponsoring the festival, and then stop financially supporting the sponsors. Moon also put out a call for community organizations and religious groups to organize peaceful counter-protests at Boise Pride Festival.

The far-right group Idaho Liberty Dogs is promoting on its social media channels Boise Pride Festival counter protests scheduled for Friday and Sunday in downtown Boise. 

Moon and far-right opponents of Boise Pride Festival oppose two events planned for Sunday — drag story time and a drag show featuring kids who had parental permission to perform. Without providing specifics or evidence, Moon alleged the festival promotes the sexualization of children.

“The sponsors of Boise Pride Fest include many publicly-funded institutions, including public universities and health care organizations,” Moon wrote in a statement to supporters Thursday. “As if these institutions used taxpayer monies to sponsor or promote this event.”

In a statement posted to Twitter on Thursday, Boise Pride Festival organizers said they postponed the kid’s drag event due to safety concerns.

“The health and well-being of the kids, their parents, and the attendees of the festival is our priority,” Boise Pride Festival Organizers said. 

In an earlier statement issued Wednesday, Boise Pride Festival Organizers said the drag kids event “is a celebration of self-expression and confidence.”

“The kids performing have the enthusiastic support of their parents,” the statement read, in part. “Often, when younger people come out, they struggle with their identity, self-acceptance, and self-expression. Dressing in costume and performing builds that confidence, encourages individuality, and ultimately is empowering.”

In a letter to Boise Pride Organizers, Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Director Dave Jeppesen said the department was withdrawing its sponsorship and pulling out support from Project Filter and Idaho HIV and STD and Hepatitis Prevention and Care Program. 

Jeppesen cited “some confusion about whether (Idaho Department of Health and Welfare) endorses specific event activities involving minors during this event,” saying the department’s decision was to “avoid any confusion regarding (its) support of such activities …”

A spokesperson for the department could not immediately answer questions from the Sun on whether Jeppesen had read the Pride organizers’ clarifying statements or reached out to the organizers before withdrawing the department’s support.”
