The Woodlands (Texas), June 17 – Parents and concerned citizens have raised red flags about Mahoney’s Texish Pub on Waterway Avenue in The Woodlands, which is promoting a “Drag Me To Brunch” drag queen show, featuring transgender and gay performers, on June 26, 2022, from 12 noon to 3 p.m. Mahoney’s promotes the event by luring children to eat for free, so that they will see a sampling of transgender and gay lifestyle.
Emilie Spruill, who lives in the community, reported on social media, “So I just called Mahoney’s Texish Bar & Restaurant and was hung up on twice. I called back a third time and said we must have been disconnected and he said ‘no ma’am that was intentional.” The manager told Spruill, “Yes, this drag show is intended for families and children and if you don’t want to come you can just stay home.”
Spruill commented, “I am asking you all for help. Here in The Woodlands, we will have a drag performance…They are inviting kids and adults, any ages to come. I plan to start calling them today and asking them to cancel this event…Additionally, pray against this evil…”
Education expert Ginger Russell, who is also a leader of the Montgomery County Republican Party as an Area Chair and an elected Precinct Chair, said, “I think it’s evil that they’re sexualizing our children.”
Dale Inman is an elected member of the Conroe Independent School District Board of Trustees. Inman led the effort to stop including drag queens in the curriculum at Willis High School, which is in the Willis Independent School District.
Inman told The Golden Hammer, “I am 100% fine with people living any lifestyle they want. What they do in their bedroom is their business, but it should stay in their bedroom. Please keep it private and that’s all I ask. But that group [referring to LGBTQ activists] has gone out of their way to try to indoctrinate. I’m not for indoctrinating children.”
Longtime conservative David Black of The Woodlands said, “Evil has a stronghold and Christians have been too silent for too long. It is time for decent people to take a stand against those who host, condone, or participate in grooming children. Exposing children to events like this is not good-natured family fun. It’s what it’s always been – child abuse. The only difference today is that the freaks and their enablers use libraries and gay bars instead of prowling school yards with a van and a lollipop.”
A resident of The Woodlands, who requested anonymity for fear of reprisal, told this newspaper, “I just called [Mahoney’s] and complained. They said they have been planning this for a while, and most people have known about it. They said 70% of their staff are LGBTQ, and they are going to support them. And then they hung up.”
Mahoney’s manager did not return telephone calls to the pub for comment. The restaurant advertises that it is a supporter of “Pride Month,” a reference to advertising to promote gay and transgender lifestyles.
After publication, Mahoney’s responded on social media as follows:
“We are a family owned and operated business. I do not appreciate you spewing lies to the community about what we are doing with our upcoming event. Your accusations are false, derogatory and misleading. This is a celebration of the LGBTQ community. Under no circumstance are we trying to lure children in to influence them in any way. This is the most absurd statement I have ever heard. We stand firm in our support of all human beings regardless of their race, creed, nationality or sexual orientation.”
When one goes to Mahoney’s page on Instagram, one will find an advertisement for the drag queen event.
