The controversial chant “We’re here! We’re queer! We’re coming for your children!” by LGBTQ activists at the annual Drag March in New York City sparked mixed reactions among Pride Parade participants. Some felt the chant could incite more anti-gay hate and worsen the challenges faced by the LGBTQ community, referencing recent attacks. Others dismissed it as a harmless jab at anti-gay activists who falsely accuse LGBTQ individuals of being pedophiles. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) tweeted in response to a clip, “This movement grooms minors to have mastectomies and castration and fuels a multi billion dollar medical child abuse industry.” Nearly two million people participated in the Pride march, including politicians and spectators of all ages.
