A petition has been started by the watchdog organization One Million Moms, who are concerned about the millions of watchers at home being exposed to the far-left LGBTQ agenda by watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The petition has received over 22,000 signatures and is growing. It mentions the acts that include transgender and non-binary artists in what was formerly a family-friendly Christmas tradition.
One Million Moms bills itself as a powerful instrument for parents to combat the immorality, violence, vulgarity, and profanity found in children’s media.
The Thanksgiving Day Parade this year, which Macy’s sponsors yearly, will include a non-binary and transgender spectacular, the petition states. Tens of millions of spectators at home might be exposed to the far-left LGBTQ propaganda if they aren’t cautioned beforehand about this year’s Christmas parade.
Musical acts based on Shucked and & Juliet, two Broadway musicals, will be presented throughout the procession. Transgender and non-binary actors and actresses portray characters in both programs.
According to the petition, Macy’s should be ashamed of itself for supporting and advertising such offensive entertainment. Macy’s has to understand that trust is earned and very hard to regain once it has been broken.
It’s not the first occasion that the famous Christmas parade has included gay or lesbian performers. Harvey Feinstein, a performer who had previously performed in drag for the musical Hairspray, dressed as Mrs. Claus on a parade float in 2003.
A report shows that in 2011, the cast of “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” performed in drag, and in 2013, members of “Kinky Boots” did the same. Last year, the 150-member “Lesbian & Gay Queer Big Apple Corps” band marched in the parade.
The American Family Association’s One Million Moms group has long been at the forefront of efforts to combat the moral decline in the entertainment industry.
Even though Macy’s Parade receives the most attention and is the most widely broadcast, the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade predates Macy’s since its official beginning in 1920.
The parade’s popularity has surged, and it now includes the usual sights and sounds of a parade, such as famous entertainers, balloons, bright floats, and marching bands from local schools.
