The Calgary Stampede just got even more woke after organizers announced a “Drag Queen Brunch” during this year’s rodeo festivities.

Apparently, nothing screams cattle wrangling and God’s country more than a transexual strutting it in a dress.

If the first-ever drag queen brunch wasn’t enough to raise eyebrows, the performer hired to saunter onto the Nashville North stage is named “Karla Marx” — a tongue-in-cheek reference to the father of genocidal Communism. 

Marx identifies as trans and previously proclaimed they were “Calgary’s most naked drag queen” on their Instagram, which is full of revealing and racy photos. 

The event is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 17 and will also feature French drag queen Nicky Doll. 

Other drag performers in attendance include Lady Boom Boom, Cyril Cinder, The Coven, Valerie Hunt, Felicia Bonee, and Argintina Hailey-Lawrence. Tickets cost between $45 to $150 for the VIP meet and greet. 

Guests attending must be over the age of 18. 

“We’re excited to expand Stampede’s programming and bring some amazing international and local drag talent to the Stampede Midway,” said Stampede director of programming Kyle Russell. 

“We have an incredible lineup set to perform for what is sure to be a party in our iconic venue, Nashville North.”

Drag queens have recently been at the centre of controversy as more parents are pushing back against children’s story hours where performers read to children. 

One recent viral video posted by LibsofTikTok shows a man in drag dancing with prosthetic breasts in front of young children. 

In the video, the performer takes a dollar bill from a child at what was advertised as being “family-friendly.”
