‘Happy Pride Day!’ at elementary school in Canada has rainbow-costumed teachers waving rainbow flags as students file in — and, of course, a drag queen show

Videos recorded last week at an elementary school in Canada features teachers dressed in rainbow costumes, waving rainbow flags, and repeatedly declaring “Happy Pride Day!” as students file in — and, of course, a drag queen performance for the kids.

What are the details?

Twitter user Colin Barry, a fifth-grade teacher for the Newfoundland & Labrador English School District, posted clips and photos Friday.

He prefaced a set of two videos and two photos by writing, “PRIDE, LOVE & ACCEPTANCE reigned supreme [at St. Matthew’s School] during our #PrideDay celebrations.”

St. Matthew’s teaches kindergarten through 7th-grade students in St. John’s, the capital city of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

One video shows students performing what appears to be staged skips under a rainbow prop and into a hallway — followed by teachers decked out in Pride regalia. The second video shows students gathered in a gymnasium for a drag queen performance.

A second post from Barry includes a video of students participating in a “full-on DANCE PARTY to kick off” Pride Month:

Yet another video that’s been reposted numerous times on social media appears to show students arriving at the school in the morning as teachers — dressed to the hilt in rainbow colors and waving rainbow flags — greet them every few feet.

As students make their way through a lobby, more teachers are seen waving flags, along with students in a line doing the same:

It appeared there was nary a spot not devoted to the celebration of all things LBGTQ as the day kicked off:

The school district on Monday afternoon didn’t immediately respond to TheBlaze’s request for comment about the videos.

How are folks reacting?

A number of commenters did not like what they saw in the videos, including one who poked the elephant in the room: “Pretty sure Saint Matthew wouldn’t be cool with this.”

  • “We’re doomed,” another commenter wrote.
  • “Grooming convention,” another user said.
  • “So sick of this s**t,” another commenter declared.
  • “This makes such great sense for all schools, from toddlers to trades, cause reading, writing & arithmetic, are just so awfully RACIST,” another user quipped.
  • “Is this an ad for homeschooling?” another commenter wondered.
  • “WTF is this bulls**t,” another user wrote.
  • “How many of them do you think you’ll manage to turn?” another commenter asked.

And perhaps the most poignant response of them all: “Hi. Gay man here. This isn’t for kids. You’re doing more harm to gay men and women than good.”
