Some of the members of a gay men’s chorus that released a controversial viral video in which the singers promised to “corrupt your kids” and “convert your children” appear to be convicted pedophiles, according to research conducted by The Western Journal.
The chorus roster and board of directors of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus were apparently removed from the group’s website around the time these revelations became public.
The chorus also has an outreach program that “brings [the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus] into elementary, middle, and high schools across the Bay Area to share a message of love, inclusivity, and strength.”
The Western Journal reached out to the group via email and social media on Friday.
The “Contact Us” page on the group’s website also appears to have been removed.
The choir was asked to comment on the accusations, whether there are in fact convicted pedophiles on its roster, why the chorus roster was removed from the website and if the group conducts background checks on members before sending them to places like schools where children are present.
The group did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
No, I just bet they didn’t. And won’t, if they can possibly avoid it. The KiddleDiddle Singers are in full-on defensive-crouch mode now, hoping against hope that this will all just dry up and blow away soon without too much more damage. That unenviable situation is what can happen when one lets the little head do all the thinking for the big head, as the old joke goes.
