Officials at a high school in Pennsylvania were forced to apologize and place a veteran French teacher on leave after the LGBT club directed a drag show event on school grounds last week. This comes on the heels of Disney premiering a kiddie drag program that glorifies the practice of men acting like women - but with kids. (see trailer below). According to an announcement from the Hempfield School District, the unsanctioned event occurred after school on April 25. The statement announced the district was treating the event as a “serious situation.” [tweet_embed] May 3, 2022[/tweet_embed] “First and foremost, the administration team apologizes to students, parents, and the community on behalf of those involved in this event,” the statement announced. “We are appalled at what took place and in no way condone this type of activity in our schools. Neither the dress of the invited guests nor the performance was appropriate in our school setting.” The school is placed in Salunga-Landisville, roughly 80 miles west of Philadelphia. For the event, the school hosted dancers dressed in drag, performing raunchy routines. The apology announcement was issued after a video of the performance made it onto social media.

The teacher was named by Lancaster Online as French teacher Kelly Tyson, who works as the LGBT club’s adviser. The district is conducting an official investigation into the event, the statement announced. According to the clubs and extracurricular activities listed on the Hempfield High School website, the Gay Sexuality Alliance club is advised by Tyson and Carla Vicidomini. Tyson, a graduate of the Millersville University of Pennsylvania, has taught in the Hempfield School District since 2013, according to her LinkedIn page.

The event was promoted to the public as a drag show, reports Harrisburg 100. The website also said that no permission slips were needed for students to attend the performance. Republican State Senator Ryan Aument weighed in on the event, saying that he had been in regular contact with the school district over the investigation. In a statement, Aument announced, “I spoke twice today via phone with Hempfield School District Superintendent Mike Bromirski. I appreciate his willingness to update me and answer my questions.” Aument is sponsoring a bill that attempts to alert parents to the presence of sexually explicit materials in schools, reports Lancaster Online.
