Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE) reportedly hosted a drag show on Saturday to kick off its inaugural “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summer Festival” outside the Langley Airforce Base in Virginia.
The US military has gone woke, and our enemies are laughing.
The City of Hampton, Virginia’s official Twitter page advertised this event the day before.

The event was advertised as family-friendly with “bouncy houses and face painting for the children.”
Also listed on the schedule was a performance by Harpy Daniels, “The Navy Drag Queen.”
The Daily Wire reported,
JBLE is hosting its first ever “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Summer Festival” on July 30, featuring a series of performances and speeches, including a poem on “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” and a drag show by Joshua Kelley, who performs under the moniker Harpy Daniels.
The festival was first proposed by the JBLE Breaking Barriers Alliance, a committee comprised of volunteer service members under the base’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion. At least one top base official, Colonel Gregory Beaulieu, the installation commander, signed off on the event and approved the use of military resources, a JBLE spokesman told The Daily Wire.
The JBLE event’s central theme is “celebrating differences,” and its purpose is ensuring “every Airman, Soldier and civilian feels valued,” JBLE told The Daily Wire in a statement.
“The goal is to provide education and awareness, increase collaboration through outreach, and recognize the diverse composition of JBLE. The theme of the event is ‘Celebrating Differences’ and will feature a number of different performers, guest speakers, and information booths, including Tuskegee Airman, Asian Indians of Hampton, a hula routine, a drag performance, and many others,” the JBLE statement said.
The trend of family-friendly drag shows is growing across the country under the Biden Regime. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation recently served a lawsuit against the owners of a bar in Miami that hosts drag shows for children.
This isn’t the first Military-sponsored drag show either.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada hosted a “first ever” drag queen show and claimed it was “essential to the morale, cohesion and readiness of the military.”
While other nations prepare their military forces with proper training, the US Military is preaching diversity, equity, and inclusion.
And this is after the debacle in Afghanistan. Where is the leadership?
