GOP Governor Glenn Youngkin is facing criticism from both sides of the aisle over a “pride month” reception he hosted at the Virginia State Capitol. While the Youngkin Administration says that pride month helps to “strengthen” the “spirit of Virginia,” his move has been blasted by conservatives and leftists alike, with the LGBT lobby’s Equality Virginia group dubbing the event a “performative” measure.
Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin’s embrace of pride month comes as corporate America, mainstream media, and the establishment of both political parties have moved, seemingly in unison, to deeply embed the LGBT lobby’s far-left agenda into the American psyche and culture. The White House, along with the governors of several states, have issued official proclamations marking June as “pride month,” though Youngkin has stopped short of taking such action.
This past Wednesday, Governor Glenn Youngkin hosted a reception in the rotunda of Virginia’s capitol building following a number of pro-LGBT events and demonstrations that took place throughout the capital city of Richmond and on the capitol grounds. While over 100 guests were reportedly invited to Youngkin’s pride month reception, the event was closed to the press.
Several invitees opted to boycott the reception, with the far-left LGBT group Equality Virginia blasting Governor Youngkin’s pride month reception as a “performative” event.
“Equality Virginia is disappointed in Gov. Youngkin’s performative attempt to celebrate Virginia’s diverse LGBTQ+ community by hosting a Pride event,” Narissa Rahaman, an executive director with Equality Virginia, said in a statement made explaining the group’s boycott. “His cherry-picking of invitees sends a message that he is unwilling to listen to the LGBTQ+ organizations and community members who have worked tirelessly for decades to make our commonwealth inclusive and welcoming for all.”
Rahaman and Equality Virginia went on to lament Governor Youngkin’s entire political platform, saying that he “spent months campaigning […]

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.
