The LGBTQ+ community is under the microscope right now.
This new rush of drag shows for kids has created significant outrage from conservatives.
Artist and activist Efrem Zelony-Mindell is not helping the case.
Zelony-Mindell identifies as a “non-binary queer.”
He was also allegedly trying to lure a 9-year-old boy into having sex with him.
U.S. attorney Damian Williams stated, “Zelony-Mindell allegedly attempted to engage in sexual activity with a nine-year-old boy. The protection of children from predation remains of critical importance to this Office, and we will continue to use our resources and work with our law enforcement partners to bring offenders to justice.”
According to the report, Zelony-Mindell was using a messaging app to broker a deal for sex with a young boy.
He used the app to contact the broker in the deal, which just happened to be an undercover FBI agent.
The message made it clear "in graphic and unambiguous terms, his desire to engage in sexual activity with minor children."
Zelony-Mindell met the agent on a corner in Manhattan on Friday thinking he was going to be taken to a drugged-up 9-year-old boy so he could sexually assault the child.
Instead, he got the cuffs slapped on him and is now facing several charges.
Among them, being in possession of child pornography based on the pictures and videos that Zelony-Mindell was sending to the FBI agent during the process of arranging the meeting.
FBI Assistant Director Michael J. Driscoll stated, “As alleged, Mr. Zelony-Mindell’s actions are nearly unfathomable.
"Today’s action should serve as a reminder to anyone who seeks to prey on children - the FBI Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Task Force and our law enforcement partners will continue to aggressively pursue you and hold you accountable.”
Zelony-Mindell is extremely influential, working as both a photographer and journalist for Vice. He also has a long list of speaking engagements at universities and events around the country since 2017.
It just makes you wonder that if someone as prominent as this was being so bold to openly make arrangements to allegedly sexually assault a child, what other atrocities are going on in this world.
Maybe, just maybe, this is why conservatives have such a huge problem with drag shows for children.
