Disturbing Chant Breaks Out at NYC Drag March: 'We're Coming for Your Children'


Participants in a New York City drag march have gone viral after a video appeared to show the crowd chanting, “We’re here. We’re queer. We’re coming for your children.”

But some parade defenders said the incident is being misunderstood.

The Friday march was part of New York City’s annual “pride month” celebrations and also served as a commemoration of the Stonewall riots 54 years ago that are generally considered the beginning of the gay rights movement.

With many clad in rainbow-colored accessories, flashy clothing, and others going topless, the participants in the march walked through Tompkins Square Park and into Greenwich Village, where they stopped at the Stonewall Inn, the gay bar that was the scene of a 1969 police raid that led to six days of violence, according to multiple reports.

As they walked along, as the New York Post reported, some of the marchers appeared to chant the phrase: “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming for your children.”

WARNING: The following video contains nudity and images that viewers may find disturbing.

The questionable choice of words has been perceived by many as LGBT activists boasting about indoctrinating children.

Should this behavior be allowed in public?

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said of the video on Twitter: “This movement grooms minors to have mastectomies and castration and fuels a multi billion dollar medical child abuse industry … Let kids be kids.”

She also called on Congress to pass her “Protect Children’s Innocence Act” – a bill that would make gender-affirming care illegal to perform on a minor.

Those who have defended the marchers, however, have said that they were actually mocking conservatives who think they’re targeting children.

Some also claimed that they had been instigated by the person taking the video and others argued that they weren’t actually chanting “we’re coming for your children.”

It’s unclear at this point who actually started the chant and why.

Whatever the case, this isn’t the first time such a thing has happened.

In mid-2021, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus went viral after a video of theirs was released to the public, showing them singing about how they’ll “corrupt” and “convert” children.

The song, called “A Message from the Gay Community,” contained the following lyrics:

“You say we all lead lives you don’t respect,

But you’re just frightened.

You think that we’ll corrupt your kids if our agenda goes unchecked.

Funny, just this once, you’re correct.

. . .

We’ll convert your children,

Happens bit by bit,

Quietly and subtly and you will barely notice it.

. . .

We’re coming for them.

We’re coming for your children.

We’re coming for them.

We’re coming for your children.”

In a statement, according to TMZ, the chorus later claimed “far-right conservative media” had taken their words out of context in order to “support a narrative that suits their intolerant and hateful needs.”

They also noted that the song was meant to be satirical and suggested that the “tongue-in-cheek humor is lost in many.”
