A group called PriDenton is planning to host multiple LGBT events in the City of Denton throughout June. 

PriDenton supports sexualizing children through drag shows and holds annual LGBT events in Denton, Texas. 

Some of the events will be on city property, including the “Big Gay Swim” and “PriDenton Night Out Near the Square,” both will be hosted at the Denton Civic Center. 

The first event is the “Pride Path” and will take place on June 1 at the Denton County Courthouse. The event is open to all ages and is in collaboration with the Texas Equal Access Fund—an organization that claimed on their website to help low-income individuals end their pregnancies. Their website has a banner that claimed “abortions are essential healthcare.”

The next event is called the “Night Out Near the Square” on June 8 at the Denton Civic Center. The event calls for people to come in their LGBTQ gear, and attendees will visit booths of businesses that support the LGBTQ cause. Under the details, it states that all ages are welcome and the civic center’s gendered bathrooms will be converted to “all-use” for the duration of the event. 

On June 13, the organization will hold a virtual event called “The Price of Hate: A Virtual Panel.” The event is in collaboration with Equality Texas—an organization that’s marketed itself as seeking to “secure full equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Texans.”

Their next event is an Open Mic night at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios on June 18.

On June 22, the organization will be hosting a Big Gay Swim Day in collaboration with OUTreach Denton—a group that actively promotes the LGBT agenda to minors and adults. The event will be at the Denton City Civic Center’s pool, and it will be open to all ages and have open-gendered changing rooms. The City of Denton taxpayers will provide the event’s lifeguards. 

Last year, OUTreach Denton and PriDenton hosted the same event where gendered restrooms were converted to non-gendered. The City of Denton also provided lifeguards but said the cost was included in the event fee. 

The last event is a dance party that will take place on June 29 at the Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studio and is only open to those 18 and over. According to their Facebook announcement, the event will have live performers, and gendered, multi-stall restrooms will be converted to “all-use” restrooms for the event.

Brady Gray, president of Texas Family Project told Texas Scorecard, “Denton has sadly become a haven for degeneracy in North Texas. It is reprehensible that the city would allow celebrations of sodomy and worse to take place on city property.”

“Denton, however, is simply a result of the much bigger problem we have in this nation. We have abandoned the principles on which our nation was founded and each day embrace more destruction and evil,” added Gray.
