A new initiative from the Texas Family Project is fighting back against the growing effort to sexualize children.

Launching this week, Defend Our Kids Texas is spearheaded by Blaze TV host Sara Gonzales.

Gonzales announced the launch of the initiative on Tuesday evening on Tucker Carson Tonight after releasing shocking footage of a drag performance held in Plano, Texas. 

The video shows crossdressing men dancing for children while vulgar lyrics are played.

“This is something that was overtly sexual. They clearly said, ‘All ages welcome.’ And now, apparently the left is gaslighting me into thinking that I’m somehow the crazy one for having a problem with this,” Gonzales told Carlson. “This is clear child abuse. This is the sexual abuse of children.”

Defend Our Kids Texas says they will serve as “boots on the ground in the fight against the anti-family crusade.” Their mission is to “expose these attacks on innocence by uncovering and aggressively highlighting the left’s antics.”

To that end, the organization encourages citizens to report upcoming drag shows for children through a form on their website. 

The Plano video has already caught the attention of the state’s top lawyer. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told Daily Caller he wants the state legislature to act.

“This is grotesque, disturbing behavior. Under Texas law, local district and county attorneys are charged with taking up the mantle to protect Texas kids by prosecuting these types of totally inappropriate acts,” said Paxton. 

“What’s more, in 2023, the Texas Legislature should amend the Texas Penal Code to expressly prohibit this kind of grossly sexual conduct and empower my Office to prosecute when district and county attorneys refuse,” Paxton added.
