Taco Bell is offering professional crossdressers along with a new $5 Bell Breakfast Box, Cinnabon Delights coffee and mimosas in a five-city “Drag Brunch Tour” that promotes mental health for LGBT youths.
The company says the brunches, which started Sunday at its Las Vegas Cantina, will feature drag queens and drag kings performing lip-sync routines on stage at the Mexican fast-food restaurants.
“We understand the importance of creating safe spaces for the LGBTQIA+ community and are thrilled to provide a unique experience that spotlights and celebrates the wonderful art form of drag and its influence in culture with their chosen families,” Sean Tresvant, Taco Bell’s global chief brand officer, said in a statement.
Taco Bell follows several big U.S. corporations such as The Walt Disney Co. that have recently promoted LGBT and transgender rights. It remains to be seen, however, whether the “woke” initiatives will appeal to consumers.
“Conservative populism is on the rise around the globe, so adopting left-leaning views or policies is risky for business,” Allen Mendenhall, associate dean of the business school at Troy University in Alabama, told The Washington Times in an email.
“For every Starbucks or Ben & Jerry’s, there’s a Chick-fil-A or Hobby Lobby,” he said.
The drag show was the brainchild of more than 100 LGBT workers that make up its Live Mas Pride Employee Resource Group, according to the company.
Taco Bell’s “Drag Brunch Tour” will head next to Chicago, Nashville, New York City and Fort Lauderdale before wrapping up in June. It is open to members of the public who are older than 18.
Drag queen and “taco extraordinaire” Kay Sedia, the tour’s host, was joined in Las Vegas by three local men who perform professionally dressed as women: Anetra, Mirage Amuro and Coco Montrese.
The nation’s leading Mexican fast-food chain first announced on April 25 that it was “rolling out the purple carpet” for the new “immersive fan experience….”
The above comes from a May 6 story in the Washington Times.
Can’t imagine something better for youth mental heath than obese men in wigs and high heels parading around while others consume fast food.
Again, we’re witnessing the progressive gender/race ideology violence against women by men, who in this case, lampoon, denigrate and caricature women in insulting and demeaning displays of toxic, misogynistic hostility and aggression.
Might as well get some college frat boys to put on black face and put on a play at a kegger.
Shame on Taco Bell! Boycott Taco Bell and their immoral pervert Drag Queen shows! Keep kids away from these sick perverts! No more gay child predators grooming and seducing kids!
Just what people need for breakfast: a drag queen show.
It’s a good thing they stopped using Gidget, their famous chihuahua, before they start promoting beastiality.
Who’s to judge?
Remember the days when not every product had to be politicized?
Looks like I’m heading to Roberto’s and Del Taco.

If only that were remotely true. The media, the entertainment world, and corporate America have deluged this nation with a secular, liberal, "sin-means-nothing" mentality.
Great, so after you eat your breakfast the visuals will prompt you to vomit.
If the food itself doesn’t induce that reaction
More abuse and denigration from the Pride agenda. “Kay Sedia” bastardizes, appropriates and lampoons the Spanish language and culture while at the same time degrading womanhood and femininity. So he’s a racist and a sexist but because he’s servicing the gender ideologic agenda, he can pretty much abuse whomever he wishes.
A bunch of cold blooded liars…
haven’t been to taco bell in many decades
this seals it; until death ….never
LGBT Let’s get better tacos
Taco Bell …. really?
