Parents Blast California School Board for Halloween Party Featuring Drag Queen Show
Parents have hired a law firm to submit a public record request about the organization of “Boo Bash” and its connection to the school board.
Many pundits and politicos now predict a “Red Tsunami” this November 8th.
If that’s the case, then I assert the wave’s origin stems from the insidious trend of progressives to target America’s children with their gender justice antics.
One data point for my hypothesis is news of a recent event in my neck of the woods, the San Diego County city of Encinitas, California. Parents are thoroughly blasting its school board for distributing a flyer featuring a Drag Queen Show/Halloween event sponsored by a gay bar.
The “Boo Bash: Queerfest Family-Family Drag Show” is sponsored by Rich’s Gay Bay and Align Surgical Associates, a gender reassignment surgery center.
Parents of students in EUSD schools are outraged and have formed an alliance with other community members to organize a “Protect Encinitas Kids” protest outside the district office.
Once the school board refused to stop promoting the event and apologize, parents confronted the members directly at a public meeting. The result was a viral video that should spook the Encinitas school board members and others like them across the nation.
In a widely circulated video on social media, Brittany Mayer accused the Encinitas Union School District of acting as “groomers and activist pimps” after it invited community youth and families to a “queer” Halloween party featuring a “family-friendly” drag queen show.
In an interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday, Mayer said that the Oct. 29 “Boo Bash” event angered dozens of parents who repeatedly asked the board to stop promoting the event and issue an apology. When they refused, Mayer and others showed up at Tuesday’s school board meeting to confront them.
“We asked the board again and again to reconsider and to issue an apology and an explanation, which they didn’t, which is why we decided to show up,” Mayer told the Fox News host.
In the clip posted on her personal Twitter account, Mayer noted that the purportedly family-friendly event was sponsored by a local San Francisco gender reassignment surgery center in collaboration with a popular gay nightclub.
Mayer verbally dissected the event and slammed everyone associated with its organization.
“I just want to know what it is that makes a drag show family friendly?” Mayer sarcastically asked the board, footage she posted of her blistering rant showed.
“What is it about a grown man costumed in a sparkly bra with augmented boobs busting out and wearing a miniskirt barely covering his twerking ass with duck tape on his front while spreading his fish-netted legs as he writhes on the ground, grinding his groin next to a minor, family friendly?” she demanded before demanding an apology.
“While we have a culture with a massive problem with child porn and child sex trafficking, you, a little school district board of adults made the decision to feature an event to hypersexualize your children,” Mayer raged.
The parents have hired a law firm to submit a public record request about the organization of the event and its connection to the school board.
Paul Jonna, one of the attorneys representing the parents, said ‘a lot of people are just generally not comfortable with the idea of pushing drag queen shows on little kids, but separate and apart from that I think the biggest concern with this event are the sponsors.’
The event was organized by a group called Trans Family Support Services, which helps families with trans members and is based in the San Diego-area.
The school district said in a statement that the event was promoted in an online hub for local events and opportunities and that its promotion on a school website did not imply an endorsement.
Parents across the nation are clearly seeing red over what is being done in the public schools, and chances are better than good they will be voting red in November.

Is there anything that’s too low or too sick for these communists?
They mistake their own obsessions for knowledge that should be shared with children. And the imagine themselves to be more important than anyone else.
In other words, the answer to your question is, “No. Nothing.”
I recall reading elsewhere that the promotion of this event directly contravened existing written school policy.
It’s really come down the people pushing this being one of three things:
1: child molestors
This is the parents fault. It’s the parents fault for not showing up at school board meetings in the past to see what was going on. They didn’t pay attention to what their schools were teaching their kids They didn’t run for school board positions letting others do the work. Now they are shocked at what is going on.
My girlfriend was on a school board for years when her daughter was going to school as she thought it was the right thing to do to be involved. You know how many parents showed up at meetings? None. I showed up because I was interested in seeing what was happening and I didn’t even have a child in school. Luckily, the school board and superintendent were all good people that would never have let this nonsense go.
Well let’s Pat you on your back!
Spoken like a true keyboard warrior. My hats off to you.
And you are certain this was brought up at a school board meeting prior to being advertised on their website?
Doesn’t matter if it is on the schedule for discussion or not and if you had ever been to one you would know this.
The fault is with the parents for not paying attention to what was going on until it is almost too late. At least they are finally standing up. Will it be enough? That will require parents to stop letting others do the job and get involved.
If nothing else, FauciFlu lockdowns got a lot of parents involved in their kids education again. And they’re pissed and confronting these tyrants.
Democrats are experts on unintended consequences
Should be interesting to see how many schoolboard members lose their part time jobs this year
Hopefully it will be enough.
Leslie, you don’t get enough credit around here for fighting the fight. But until this crap arrives in everyone’s back yard, we cannot expect to any help or sympathy. This is how Texas replaced CA as The Open Borders – Sanctuary Cities State. While Californians were fighting the onslaught on conservative values, they got no help nor sympathy from the rest of the country. We “racists” got a wall built in 1993, passed Proposition 13 to cap property taxes, passed the “homophobic” Defense of Marriage Act and in the end lost because Texas sent us Team Bush/Cheney/Rove to seize control of our Republican State Committee. Having killed the GOP, CA became a one-party state.
Now that one-party is fighting for its own existence as the Socialist Democrat Party is wresting the key power positions from the smug, hubristic Democrats. CA is being taken over by communists right now and all we hear is “You voted for it”, “Just l eave but not to our state”, “Give CA back to Mexico” and the rest. Surrendering CA and the entire West Coast to our mortal enemies abroad seems to be our domestic enemies plan. And they can just say that we voted for it. Just like Texas. Because apparently, this is not America’s fight.
I am not posting this comment to discourage you Leslie, you’ve been in this fight longer than I have and have done much more and you’re still here fighting. I am posting this to get non-Californians to change their attitudes about how it is never ever their fight. They just hate CA. I would like them to get a map and study it as China would. Think about whether they would feel this way if Chinese forces were on our shores seizing our entire West Coast. But they don’t have to worry about those forces. “Conservatives” are surrendering it to them without a fight. This is California’s problem.
From Canada down to the Panama Canal, the biggest player on the Pacific Rim is being taken out of the game. We may soon have to send our ships around Cape Horn to participate in a much shrunken global economy like in the good old days when wind power ruled the seas.
These school committee skirmishes are an important part of getting people to fight but if America is not willing to fight to maintain control of the 5th largest economy in the world with the thousands of miles of coast line and large seaports and its wealth of natural resources because “Hey, they voted for it !”, a geographically isolated land-locked America will get what it deserves. Let’s see how they feel once China’s version of equity, justice, diversity and inclusion rules the day. What will be the excuse then? “Damn those Californians!”?
America may have already lost the big war and without a fight. What we are seeing with this surrender of the West Coast and take-over of local politics may just be a mop-up operation and who knows how many people will have to die by the time that is over.
There is still time but Americans have to look in the mirror, get out of their cowardly echo chambers and face reality. CA is critically important and needs to be reclaimed. We are NOT going to vote our way out of this if the rest of America has already handed us over to foreign invaders.
THANK YOU SO MUCH. Your kind words mean so much, and your analysis is on target (as we say in archery).
What do you want people to do if we are not going to vote our way out of this?
For one thing, stop attacking those of us in CA who have been fighting things. We didn’t vote for this and voting out here is now pointless. We could sure use some help. Keep in mind that when Trump held his rallies out here in 2016, 1/3 of the attendees were Democrats. In 2020, it was reported that had grown to half. There are a lot conservatives still here and it really sucks that we are doing most of the fighting and yet we get blamed for everything.
If CA goes down, the rest of you have no hope. How comfortable are you in TX where Beto O’Roarke can almost defeat “conservatives” like Ted Cruz, John Cornyn and Greg Abbot? Why do you keep voting for them, sanctuary cities and open borders? Do I have to go state-by-state? Help us out!!!
Perhaps you could point out which of the LI commenters, in particular, are blaming conservatives in CA. I sympathize with your frustration about living in a dysfunctional state, but this seems like an unhelpful rant.
The dismissive shrug and “they got what they voted for” thing is what ticks Phil off, and it’s hard to blame him. We’re ALL living in this Biden hell, and we sure didn’t get what WE voted for. Ditto when Obama won (the first time, not so sure his second win was on the up and up). Imagine if a bunch of Europeans were like, sure, America is going down the crapper, but they got what they voted for. I’d be livid, too!
I don’t remember you commenting here. Maybe you need to do your own research to get caught up.
Same as you, I think. Type Type Type on your keyboard, get all fake outraged in forums but never show up to a meeting and actually get involved in the nitty gritty which is why this crude has gone as far as it has.
You have no idea what you are talking about. You are just stuck in your own personal echo chamber and can’t get out. And why are you here wasting your time and ours Type Type Type-ing? If you want to have a country, stop attacking those of us who are engaged in the fight in states you hate just because? Have you organized your own life and resolved all of the differences with your family, friends and neighbors? Or, like just about everyone, half don’t talk to the other half and are divided along political lines? Who are you to lecture anyone else?
Get to work and if you have nothing constructive to say, leave those of us doing things alone. We are not interested in your well-echo-chamber-tested knee-jerk comments.
If we don’t live in CA, we don’t have a vote in CA. How do you expect this “fight” to be carried by non-Californians?
I don’t know any sane person that wants to lose all of the natural resources of that state, but the truth is conservative votes in CA would do more good in a battleground state than there. Sane people are voting with their feet and it is weakening the power of CA in the national landscape, as evidenced by the census.
So, you can tamp your rant down a tad on which conservatives you think aren’t being strategic by condemning the political trends in your state.
Battleground states? Like who? Texas is a toss-up and our resident Texans keep complaining about all of the conservative Californians moving there. I don’t count those moving from Silicon Valley because most of them, like our homeless and illegals, don’t originate from CA.
Stop bashing us! We are not the enemy! We are fighting the final stages of a Marxist takeover and we get attacked by all of you value-signalling “conservatives” believing your are safe where you are? Tell the story correctly! CA is NOT destroying this country. The rest of the country is helping the Marxists destroy CA!!
Most of what I see in other states as I research where I could move is where California was 5-10 years ago. Florida was saved by DeSantis (thanks to Trump). AZ isn’t getting much help from other states either (other than Trump) as they try to clean out the McCain machine. Yet who fights them the most? Republicans!!!
If it weren’t for Trump fighting for WA, OR, MI, WI, IN, PA they would be lost already too! Trump has so far given us 6 more years of hope. What a gift! The world had already assumed Hillary would win in 2016.
CA is winnable in 2024 but not with “conservatives” like you fighting people like me in places like CA. Running away looking for a safe place to vote is pathetic. That’s all you got?
VA just had a r win the Gov, LT Gov and AG races largely on making sure Parents had the final say over their kids.
Many States have already beaten back the weirdos. In some States the weirdos didn’t get out of the gate much less gain even brief control.
True but VA is not going to change America. CA had the 5th largest economy in the world, a population larger than Canada, natural wealth unequaled by any state and strategic geographic advantages that are essential for America to continue being America,
I move here in 1989 when CA was a solid red state, Reagan Country. Even then, Americans hated CA. (They hated Texas too). So it has nothing to do with liberal or conservative. It’s a deep-seated envy that survives everything. America has some serious growing up to do.
CA is a bit deceptive. The last r Presidential candidate to get 50%+ in CA and not be from CA was Bush in 1988. Before him was Eisenhower in 1956 and he had a Californian as his running mate; Nixon. Before him…Hoover in 1928, though he did graduate from Stanford and his wife was from from CA. No r presidential candidate has even hit 45% since Bush in 1988.
I personally don’t ‘hate’ Californians but I do dislike the whole ‘CA is more important and better than’ vibe. IMO, the allure of CA is in the memory of what it was. Sure it’s populous State with a nice coastal climate. It’s pretty. It used to be a nice place to live, work and raise a family even in the metro areas.
Today though? If the voters of CA want to alter one party rule it’s on them. No one is coming to save CA. That’s the same thing the r party had to do in converting the formerly solid South from d control to r control. The contrast of CA and the deep South over the timeline from Reagan to now is striking.
@Commo: Bush won CA in 1988 by 50%+ because everyone assumed his was going to be Reagan’s 3rd term. After undermining Reagan’s 2nd term, he emerged to become the anti-Reagan and didn’t get re-elected. But his neocons replaced Reagan’s vision with the New World Order which was adopted by the GOP and Dems.
If you don’t like the “CA is more important and better than..” vibe, get a map and study your geography. The 5th largest economy in the world sitting on the most advantageous coastline with natural resources is no more important any other state. Sure. If you say so. Seriously.
And VA having “Rs” sweeping the top spots doesn’t prove anything if they are just going to have once again pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes. Anyone can talk a good game. TX is also a “red” state. Abbot, Cornyn and Cruz. Yeah. that’s quite a “conservative” team over there. And all those sanctuary cities in all of those “red” states? What are you drinking?
Let me know when you are ready to make sense. I’m not interested in debating “feelings”. Read the comments from people trying to refute the points I made. It’s all about feelings and more CA hatred. Get a map and look at the US from the point of view of an invading enemy. Yeah, all states are “equal”. That’s a good one comrade.
“Battleground states? Like who? Texas is a toss-up and our resident Texans keep complaining about all of the conservative Californians moving there. I don’t count those moving from Silicon Valley because most of them, like our homeless and illegals, don’t originate from CA.”
You have druthers up for no reason. I doubt anyone hates conservatives from CA moving in. I think it’s the other transplants they are worried about.
Battleground states include Wisconsin, Michigan, and sadly now Arizona and Georgia, North Carolina is also one but it seems to be trending the right way for the moment.
“Stop bashing us! We are not the enemy! We are fighting the final stages of a Marxist takeover and we get attacked by all of you value-signalling “conservatives” believing your are safe where you are? Tell the story correctly! CA is NOT destroying this country. The rest of the country is helping the Marxists destroy CA!!”
Stop being so sensitive. No one is attacking you. They are attacking the ridiculousness that goes on in your state. Your typical response is to lash out at another state…talk about lack of strategy. None of this rant constitutes any strategy to win the state back. Big on rhetoric, short on substance.
“Most of what I see in other states as I research where I could move is where California was 5-10 years ago. Florida was saved by DeSantis (thanks to Trump). AZ isn’t getting much help from other states either (other than Trump) as they try to clean out the McCain machine. Yet who fights them the most? Republicans!!!”
Are you confusing voters with politicians here? Again, you seem to have difficulty separating the two. The establishment grifters have sowed just enough discord to turn a red state into a purple one, that’s what they want. A few seats at the table to get money but zero responsibility. That said, if conservative Californians moved there, it could help get them out and turn the state red again. So, why is it a bad choice? And, if you are suggesting this, why would trying to get conservatives to “fight” with you by moving to CA be a better choice? The state is solidly blue. Transplants that can’t turn the seats are just there helping the census.
“If it weren’t for Trump fighting for WA, OR, MI, WI, IN, PA they would be lost already too! Trump has so far given us 6 more years of hope. What a gift! The world had already assumed Hillary would win in 2016.”
You can call it Trump or you can call it conservatism, but it’s encouraging to see. I was happy to see Trump beat Hillary in 2016, but I think it doesn’t happen without that element of surprise. That’s not me hating Trump; it’s just me looking at the way things went. Turnout was low and Trump was predicted to lose bad, so he caught them completely off guard. I don’t think it was 3-D chess because it was an unforced error by the pollsters. I’m glad our side benefited from that miscalculation.
“CA is winnable in 2024 but not with “conservatives” like you fighting people like me in places like CA. Running away looking for a safe place to vote is pathetic. That’s all you got?”
More nonsense…how am I fighting you? I vote where I live. You can vote where you live, but your vote doesn’t count for much in deep blue CA, that’s just factual analysis of the political landscape in the state. Tilting at windmills seems to be all you have.
Wut? That doesn’t even parse but I am sure that works in your echo chamber where conclusions dictate reasoning.
Conservative voters in CA can get busy in the r party at the precinct, county and State level to reform the party apparatus and kick the rino grifters to the curb, which doesn’t seem to have been successful. All the while enduring high State tax and regulatory burden, soft on crime policies, rampant homeless population.
Or these folks could could move to red or purple State. Doing so deprives CA of their tax revenue and of their presence for Census count which transfers political and economic power away from CA to red or purple States.
The diaspora of conservative Californians to these areas shores up red State control and flips purple States red.
Those are the choices. Get busy winning locally or pack up and leave.
Trans-social grooming with 50 shades of transgender conversion therapy (e.g. pride parade… less the lions, lionesses, and their unPlanned cubs playing in gay revelry).
California is a sanctuary state for immigration reform (e.g. labor without borders), environmentalism/Green energy, transgender conversion therapy (e.g. grooming), casting couches/sex positivity, taking a knee and… uh, pledging fealty, and performance of human rites for social, redistributive, clinical, and fair weather causes.
Progress: one step forward, two steps backward.
