10-Year-Old Boy ‘Drag Kid’ Photographed With Naked Adult Drag Queen

On Monday, 10-year-old Canadian boy Nemis Quinn Mélançon-Golden was featured in a troubling Huck Magazine piece highlighting the life of a so-called “child drag queen.”

Young Nemis, whose drag name is “Queen Lactacia,” was shot by photographer Jonathan Frederick Turton for the spread. In one of the shots that did not make the magazine, Nemis, in full drag makeup and a black dress, is posing for a photo with the Season 7 winner of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Violet Chachki. In the shocking photo, Violet is wearing nothing but a pair of heels and a small piece of fabric covering his genitals, as seen in the screenshot below:

“Interviewed and photographed [Queen Lactatia] for [Huck Magazine] about life as a child drag queen,” posted Turton.

Turton, according to his website, “is a multi-media content producer with specialisms in photography, videography and journalism.” He claims to have shot for mainstream outlets and businesses like the BBC, Adidas, Dazed and Confused Magazine, and The Discovery Channel.

In the jarring Huck Magazine piece — which ironically bashes Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro for calling out parents for over-sexualizing their “drag kids” — Nemis’ mother, Jessica Melancon, conceded that drag has a sexual component and is unapologetic about her young son wearing sexually suggestive clothing if it “makes him feel beautiful”:

“Drag is an adult arena and that’s where people question our judgement,” concedes Jessica. “So we have to censor things. He knows there are adult aspects of drag that he’s not allowed to apply to his show.”

“We would never try to overtly sexualise our child. But if he wears something that makes him feel beautiful, what right do I have to stop him wearing that dress because it might cause people to think things they shouldn’t be thinking? It’s a circular problem.”

In 2017, Nemis appeared on stage with popular drag queen Bianca Del Rio at a drag show his mother brought him to. The clip of the two on stage together, wherein the drag queen repeatedly uses the word “b****” and drops an “f”-bomb, quickly went viral.

“That video happened and everyone went crazy,” Jessica recalled. “But we knew from the get-go we never wanted to lose control, or lose sight of it being fun for Nemis.”

According to Jessica, drag is “how Nemis chooses to express himself. He’s just a kid playing.”

“There is so much more going on in the world right now which is more horrifying and terrifying than my child wearing fancy shoes and a skirt. This shouldn’t be on anyone’s list of priorities,” she added.

Nemis also appears to already be an LGBT advocate. “Choose Love. Be Proud. Smash the Patriarchy and be kind to one another, always! #pride #lovenothate#loveislove #nonbinary #thefutureisfluid,” reads a post on the boy’s Instagram account, which is said to be run by his mother.

In December, an 11-year-old named Desmond Napoles performed a sexually-suggestive musical number in full drag at a New York City-based gay bar called 3 Dollar Bill. The boy received dollar bills from the adult males in the audience, as one might see in a strip club.

As reported by The Daily Wire, Desmond (AKA Desmond is Amazing) “was dressed as a Gwen Stefani-lookalike — full drag make up, a blonde wig, and crop top included — as he bounced around onstage to No Doubt’s ‘Like a Girl’ and collected dollar bills from male adults viewing the number.”

    Just a couple of years ago, this was child abuse. How is this good for a child? Let him dress up at home, not with other confused adults…..

    This is absolute child abuse and that kid should be removed this woman’s house. It is a great way to indoctrinate this poor kid before he even has a chance to grow into an adult. SICK,SICK,SICK.

    I can’t believe CPS allows parents to let their children do this. Disgraceful!

    This is pure Satanic Evil at work and it is Child Abuse mentally, Emotionally, and Physically and the Parents should be under arrest and a Order for Termination of Parental Rights should be filed.

    This is beyond child abuse, it’s sick and very dangerous. What kind of parent would allow this. That boy should not be mingling with adults in that atmosphere.

    These are boys dressing up as girls and this is ok? Why not have girls prancing around half naked in a bar full of men giving them money?? Because its ABUSE These kids don’t CHOOSE to do this. Its because its FORCED on them. They don’t know anything else. ‘Mama loves you if you dress up for me’ is EMOTIONAL abuse. Prancing around in dresses is MENTAL abuse. Strutting around in a bar is SEXUAL abuse
