An event for the LGBTQ+ community was reluctantly canceled amid mounting hate messages aimed at organizers and borough officials.

Organizers of the LGBTQ+ OutFest in Westchester, Pennsylvania, canceled the event ahead of its scheduled October 1 date after overwhelming backlash from anti-LGBTQ+ groups.

The Pride event, which was to be held on Gay Street, was intended to create a sense of togetherness among local queer people while hosting several big queer performances and talks.

However, the organizers, who helped schedule the event, felt it was too dangerous to continue due to anger and opted to postpone it indefinitely.

“Shocked by the amount of hatred”

West Chester Borough Council Speaker Michael Stefano said: NBC Philadelphia: “I am shocked at the amount of hate I have received in my emails this week.

He added that the decision was not made by the borough council and that he was “extremely disappointed” that the permit had been revoked. I don’t know.

A local Republican committee has instructed outraged members of the public to voice their anti-LGBTQ+ sentiments over the event at a local council meeting earlier this week.

In a Facebook post on Friday (September 16), the West Chest Republican Commission falsely called the event a “drag show” while asking followers to “make your voice heard in the borough council.” said.

Drag was supposed to be at OutFest, but it wasn’t explicitly dedicated to drag performance and showcased mixed voices from the LGBTQ+ community.

“To cheer everyone up”

The committee also linked the Instagram account of drag performer Stephanie Steele, who was scheduled to attend the event. The drag queen commented on the situation as follows: ABC interview.

“I adapt to what my audience is. I always check who is in my audience, are there children in my audience?”

They went on to say they were disappointed the event was canceled as it could be a place for LGBTQ+-aware young people to meet friends and like-minded groups. Through something, we are all here to make everyone feel better. “

Much of the anti-LGBTQ+ rhetoric directed at OutFest organizers seems to be in line with the recent wave of anti-LGBTQ+ groups attacking drag shows.

The drag queen story hour show, in particular, faces intense scrutiny from groups who misunderstand the meaning behind the event.
