The mother of Child Drag Queen Desmond Naples is appalled that a convicted pedophile finds her son sexy and sexualized his performances.
Tom O’Carroll, convicted in the UK in 2006 for distributing child pornography, and former chairman of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) referred to Desmond in a blog post written last month as a “pretty young boy” and “sexy kid.”
“We do not approve of his statements & have written to wordpressdotcom several times but they have yet to remove it. It is highly inappropriate to speak of minors in this manner, said Wendy Napoles in a statement on Instagram. “What Tom O’Carroll has said is out of our control & we do not know him or associate with him or any other pedophiles or sex offenders.” (RELATED: Houston Public Library Apologizes For Allowing Sex Offender To Read To Kids During ‘Drag Queen Story Time’)

This is extremely disturbing. Convicted pedophile Tom O’Carroll has written a blog post stating that Desmond is hot & feels sexy performing. He also sexualizes fellow drag kid Queen Lactatia. We do not approve of his statements & have written to @wordpressdotcom several times but they have yet to remove it. It is highly inappropriate to speak of minors in this manner . . I want to address some of his points. First, the Conservative press is currently accusing us of purposely attracting pedophiles & accusing the LGBTQ community of supporting this. What Tom O’Carroll has said is out of our control & we do not know him or associate with him or any other pedophiles or sex offenders. I think if a pedophile wants to act on their urges, NO child is safe . . Desmond does not move in a sexual manner or strip, at all. He has done costume reveals that reveal a fully covered costume underneath. He is never “scantily clad” or nearly naked & always is age appropriate. He does celebrity impersonations & does not choose to do sexy celebrities . . Desmond does not feel “sexy” in drag. What he has said is that at times in drag he “feels like a boy & a girl at the same time”. This isn’t to mean that Desmond is confused about his gender. He identifies as a boy & uses the pronouns he, him, his, even in drag. To Desmond, drag is dressing up into a character, performing, & expressing oneself through art. Desmond is also an actor & model. Desmond loves what he does & is never forced to do anything. He chooses everything from his costumes, makeup, songs, etc . . Desmond came out as gay when he was 11. Although, honestly we knew before then. He got same sex crushes that he would tell me about. Desmond knows the difference between a heterosexual & homosexual. Just because he identifies as gay does not mean he is sexually active or wants to be. He knows what sex is…he’s in middle school and has had sex education class. Apparently, he said all the kids giggled through the whole course. Anyone discussing anything remotely sexual on Desmond’s social media is immediately blocked & reported. We are just appalled at this whole situation – Mom . . #desmondisamazing #lgbtqnews
She then went on to criticize conservative media saying, “The Conservative press is currently accusing us of purposely attracting pedophiles & accusing the LGBTQ community of supporting this.” (RELATED: ‘Children Can Handle The Kink’ Of Pride Parades, Says LGBTQ Activists)
As recently as last December, Desmond was criticized when it was discovered that he had performed in a gay club as grown men threw dollars bills at him. He wore a crop top and a blonde wig while dancing to the song “Just a Girl” by No Doubt.
In a photo posted on the same Instagram page back in June, Desmond appears next to an adult individual wearing a shirt that says, “Angels Have No Gender But Lots Of Sex.”
