While it's increasingly common to see footage of children at drag shows, the latest video that's circulating is still just as shocking as ever.
According to reports, the footage that's stirring up controversy is said to have originated from Cabababarave, a U.K. organization that advocates for drag events catering to children under the age of 5. Numerous Twitter users have shared videos and images from one such event, which depict drag performers wearing thongs and engaging in sexually suggestive dances while in the presence of infants and toddlers.

One video shows a performer clad in leather bondage attire executing a suspended act using ropes fastened to the ceiling. The event appears to be well-attended, with parents and their young children in attendance. Additionally, there are pictures that depict a mostly unclothed performer carrying a small girl during a performance.
Following the widespread dissemination of these videos, Cabababarave has made their Instagram and Facebook accounts private. While numerous forthcoming events seem to have been canceled, there is still one sold-out show scheduled for March 11 at The Flair Ground in London that remains unaffected. The event is labeled as "cabaret drag & burlesque" and promoted as "family friendly" on its page.
“CABABABARAVE is an exciting new event for parents and their babies!” the description states. “A little slice of afternoon delight that provides show-stopping cabaret interspersed with captivating baby sensory moments.. ending in a RAVE.”
The description of the event goes on to mention that it will be hosted by Lizzie and Gemma, who are characterized as "two mothers who were once performers and were constantly seeking entertainment while holding a baby in one hand and a pint in the other."
The description reads, "As mothers, we aimed to create an event that we ourselves would enjoy attending. We understand how tiresome it can be to listen to the same children's songs repeatedly. We wanted to offer parents the opportunity to experience a 'wild night out' in London, complete with cabaret performances, drinks, and dancing, but one that they could bring their baby along to and still be able to return home in time for bedtime."
Numerous Twitter users expressed their revulsion at the promotion of a sexually suggestive event aimed at babies and toddlers.
The parents that take their children to events like this should lose custody of their children, and the companies and people that put them on should be locked up. Absolutely revolting. pic.twitter.com/whKTb9peu9

Disney Faces Serious Backlash After Releasing 'Anti-White' Cartoon
The reboot of Disney's "The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder" is facing intense criticism over a controversial rap that features children singing about slavery and reparations. The lyrics of the rap argue that America has not done enough to atone for its history of prejudice, racism, and White supremacy and therefore owes Black Americans.
Critics argue that the rap is too mature for the show's young audience, while others argue that the song is an important reminder of the history of racism in America. The rap states, "This country was built on slavery, which means slaves built this country. The descendants of slaves continue to build it. Slaves built this country and we, the descendants of slaves in America, have earned reparations for their suffering and continue to earn reparations every moment we spend submerged in a systemic prejudice, racism, and White supremacy that America was founded with and still has not atoned for."
