The Satanic Temple was included on a list of participants of a “kid friendly” LGBTQ+ “Pride in the Park” event in Idaho—which includes a “drag dance party”—until Libs of Tik Tok publicized their involvement on Twitter.
A member of the Satanic group claimed to have pulled out of the Saturday event after several sponsors apparently dropped out due to their participation.
“I deeply apologize and regret to inform everyone that @TSTIdaho has decided to not be at the North Idaho Pride event “Pride in the Park” as a congregation,” tweeted Satanic Temple member “Rowan Astra” on Thursday. “There are several factors for this, including several sponsors seemingly dropping after learning of our appearance.” BREAKING: Satanic Temple removed from list of supporters for Idaho drag dance party after backlash. Other sponsors reportedly dropped their sponsorship after learning of the Satanic Temple’s involvement. https://t.co/LzY4HYpiXl pic.twitter.com/yALkEOqIen — Libs of TikTok (@libsoftiktok) June 10, 2022 The event, which is hosted by the North Idaho Pride Alliance in Coeur d’Alene Idaho, is advertised as a “family friendly celebration of LGBTQ+ diversity.” First on the list of “kid friendly” activities advertised is a “Drag Dance Party.” Other activities will reportedly include music, crafts, “community village booths,” and “artisan market.” Among the community village booths will be “HIV and STD booths,” according to the Idaho Tribune. Pride in the Park organizers initially included the Satanic Temple as one of the official groups participating in the event, the Idaho Tribune reported.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
