An elementary school in Oakland, California ended their school year by indoctrinating children as young as five years old with “Pride Day” and celebrated all types of “families” including lesbians, gas, bisexuals, transgendered, and queer led family units.
Principal Chelsea Toller opened the June 5 assembly with an auditorium full of students in kindergarten through fifth grade by saying, “This morning we are so lucky to be celebrating our first Glenview Elementary Family Pride celebration.”
She then gave the floor to Carrie Kessler who talked about “this awesome flag that’s behind us, this beautiful flag.”

“I’m really excited about today. I’m excited that it’s June. Pride Month,” Kessler told the children. “Anybody recognize this flag? This flag is not that old. This flag is the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer pride. And this flag was created by a San Francisco artist by the name of Gilbert Baker in 1978. It’s a symbol of pride for the LGBTQ unity, and it is flown very proudly as a symbol of pride and freedom for members of that community.”
She then explained what each color on the flag symbolized. Red represents life, orange is for healing, yellow is for sunlight, green symbolizes nature, blue is serenity and violet represents spirit.
“So now you know,” Kessler told the children.
She then introduced to the kids a “gay” men’s choir.
“I’m really, really excited. We are honored today to have very special guests, who are going to come up and sing for all of us today,” Kessler said. “Please give a warm welcome to the Oakland-East Bay Gay Men’s Chorus.”
The children clapped, and then the all-male choir led them in a sing-along under the direction of Stephanie Lynne Smith, a lesbian who has a long history with the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses.
