Vatican faces backlash for inviting DRAG ARTIST to perform during inaugural celebration of World Children’s Day
By Laura Harris // May 30, 2024

The Catholic Church is facing backlash after it invited a male drag artist to perform during the inaugural celebration of World Children's Day.

Pope Francis announced in December that the Vatican would be celebrating its first-ever World Children's Day from May 25 to 26 in a bid to better focus the Church's mission for children. The event was supposed to gather young attendees from around 100 countries and included meetings with Pope Francis, with the culminating event being a Trinity Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Square. But a drag performance turned the event into a scandal.

Carmine De Rosa, an Italian native of Salerno in southwestern Italy, performed at Rome's Olympic Stadium on May 25. Known for his quick-change performances and living cartoon acts, De Rosa's World Children's Day performance had him dressed in multiple drag outfits, including a pink dress with a plunging neckline.

De Rosa's act, which involved suggestive cardboard costumes, was performed with children seated in a circle around him while Pope Francis and thousands of other children from across the globe watched. (Related: Canadian elementary students forced to watch drag show in school gym to celebrate ‘pride’ month.)

De Rosa, who frequently performs for the Italian network RAI and at various events, including First Communion parties, stated that his participation was both intentional and professional. But his participation was immediately criticized, including by former Papal Nuncio Carlo Maria Vigano, who accused the Vatican of endorsing LGBT ideology through De Rosa's inclusion in the event.

"This is one of the characters called by the Argentine Jesuit [Pope Francis] as an entertainer at World Children's Day. It is now clear that Bergoglio is one of the main activists of the hellish LGBTQ + agenda. There are no more words to express the scandal and disgust, in the complicit and cowardly silence of the Episcopate. 'Whoever scandalizes even one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for him if a millstone turned into a donkey’s wheel were hung around his neck, and he were cast into the depths of the sea’ (Mt 18:6),'" the prelate wrote on X.

Pope Francis shows love to the LGBT community in different interviews

The Pope often shows love to the LGBT community in different interviews.

In a heartfelt exchange two years ago between Pope Francis and Jesuit Father James Martin, a prominent minister to LGBT Catholics, the Pope underscored the values of closeness, mercy and tenderness as central to God's nature. Father Martin wrote to Pope Francis in Spanish, requesting answers to questions frequently asked by LGBT Catholics and their families. A few days later, the Pope provided a handwritten response, which Father Martin published on his website.

"With respect to your questions, a very simple response occurs to me. God is Father and he does not disown any of his children. And 'the style' of God is 'closeness, mercy and tenderness.' Along this path you will find God," the Pope wrote.

Pope Francis also encouraged the LGBT community to read the Acts of the Apostles, which offers a true living and inclusive Church. He even addressed the rejection that some LGBT Catholics have experienced throughout the years.

"I would have them recognize it not as 'the rejection of the church,' but instead as 'people in the church.' The church is a mother and calls together all her children. Take for example the parable of those invited to the feast: 'the just, the sinners, the rich and the poor, etc.' [Matthew 22:1-15; Luke 14:15-24]. A 'selective' church, one of 'pure blood,' is not Holy Mother Church, but rather a sect," he wrote.
