Walmart has suddenly pulled support from the drag queen shows for kids that had been sponsoring as Americans begin pressuring the company over LGBTQ clothing line offerings.

Walmart has suddenly pulled the plug on the drag shows for kids sponsored by its Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Now the organization is no longer hosting drag shows and story hours for kids during the annual LGBTQ+ celebration of Northwest Arkansas Pride.


The LGBTQ+ advocacy group Northwest Arkansas Equality, also funded by the Waltons, sponsors that yearly “pride” celebration and the accompanying “Youth Zone” events at the arts center. Among other things, the “Youth Zone” featured drag queen story time for younger kids and drag shows for teens.

While it’s not clear what went on behind the scenes in the Walton Arts Center board discussions, it could be that it was some bad publicity that factored into the board’s decision.

“Due to the charged nationwide political conversations around drag and minors …, we asked if there was any way we could help NWA Pride reach its intended goals for the Youth Zone without drag performances for minors,” the board of directors explained in a May statement.

“Our concern was not simply around the physical safety surrounding these events, but the policy to not allow parents, guardians, and caregivers into the Youth Zone,” it later wrote.

Naturally, Northwest Arkansas Equality was peeved.

But, who cares what these dangerous groomers care about?

This comes on top of recent revelations that Walmart has been selling “Gay Pride” clothing to infants and toddlers.

The Walmart website shows clothing for babies, toddlers, and young children with slogans including “Choose Equality,” one shirt reading “Some People Are Gay Get Over It,” and various rainbow-emblazoned gear.

Some of the clothing on Walmart’s website is even for newborns and infants.

Despite the debacle of Target, Bud Light, and others, Walmart has also insisted that it will not take down its groomer agenda.
