Nothing says “Halloween” like a children’s party sponsored by surgeons offering to cut out healthy body parts.
But at La Costa Heights Elementary School in San Diego, that’s exactly what K-6 School offers.
On Oct. 29, the school plans to hold “Boo Bash,” billed as the “weirdest free Halloween party for kids and families,” according to a Sept. 12 email from the school and obtained by Epoch Times.
The event will include a “family” drag show, games, tricks or treats and a costume contest, the email said.
But the scariest part of Boo Bash is the list of sponsors.
The poster features Align Surgical Associates Inc., a gender reassignment surgery company.
The practice is website offers “gender affirmation” surgeries to transform women to appear as men, and men to appear as women. Surgeons also provide services for men and women to change their bodies so that they don’t look like a man or a woman.
To achieve such goals, Align offers about 22 different surgical procedures, ranging from removing the breast or penis to creating a “vagina,” the website explains.
Other surgeries offer facial reconstruction to change a gendered appearance and blend fat around the body to create feminine curves or manly angles. The practice also offers “nullification” surgeries to “smooth” the exterior of the body, removing as much evidence of the genitals as possible.
“Cancellation creates a relatively continuous and generally uninterrupted transition from the abdomen to the genital area, allowing gender-nonconforming patients to enjoy a body that looks more like on the outside than they feel on the inside. interior,” the website reads.
The Epoch Times contacted Align Surgical Associates to request an interview, but the group declined to comment.
Clubbing for children
Another elementary school Halloween party sponsor is Rich’s, a gay nightclub for adults 21 and older.
A review on TripAdvisor said that Rich’s allows drug use. Several reviews on Yelp mentioned the exotic dancers at the bar.
“Rich’s is San Diego’s largest and most popular gay nightclub,” the website says.
The organizer of the event is the activist group TransFamily Support Services, a pro-transgender organization.
“TransFamily Support Services saves lives by shaping a gender affirming and accepting community,” reads its mission statement.
The site advises parents to get along with a child who identifies as transgender.
“My transgender or non-binary tween/teen wants to meet with a doctor to discuss medical transition options – what should I expect?” a section on the site reads.
Other event sponsors include: Gay San Diego Fabulous Hillcrest, San Diego Pride, North County LGBTQ Resource Center and San Diego Soccer Club.
The list of Boo Bash sponsors has raised concern from Thomas More Society special counsel Paul Jonna.
“I think it’s debatable, to be honest, that a surgical facility could basically advertise their services in this context to underage children in kindergarten through sixth grade,” Jonna said. “Promoting sexually deviant lifestyles and exposing them to this kind of madness at a young age obviously seems morally wrong.”
Jonna added that he believed the advertising of nightclubs and gender reassignments for children was illegal. He is still studying the subject.
The Thomas More Society will also research the event and the degree of correspondence La Costa Heights Elementary has had with sponsoring organizations, Jonna said.
If the school acted illegally, the Thomas More Society will try to stop the event, he added.
“There are a lot of weird things about this event,” he said.
But this is just one of many events held across the country recently to promote “family hangouts” and other LGBT events to children.
“The motivations of the event organizers seem to be to indoctrinate these young children at an early age into sympathizing with this extreme and evil ideology,” Jonna said. “I don’t know how anyone can think that’s normal or good.”
Some LGBT activists argue that children should be taught from an early age to view gender identity as a choice. They also believe that children should consider changing the gender they were “assigned at birth” if it made them more comfortable.
