Recently our office was forwarded an email announcement from the University of Central Arkansas promoting a number of events in celebration of “LGBTQIA History Month.”
Among other things, a drag show is scheduled in the university’s student amphitheater tomorrow afternoon, and UCA students are being offered transportation to Little Rock Pride Fest later this month.
It’s deeply troubling that a state university that receives taxpayer funding would promote radical LGBT ideology to college students by hosting and participating in events like these.
Below is a copy of the announcement we received.
October is LGBTQIA History Month and the following events have been planned:
Tuesday, October 9th – Drag Show. Student Center Amphitheater. – 1:30 pm -2:30 pm.
