Round Rock ISD has reportedly used taxpayer dollars to support a Pride event.

The event celebrated sexual identities, with Round Rock ISD allocating taxpayer resources for the purchase of rainbow handheld fans (more than $300), rainbow stickers (nearly $40), and custom stickers that the district printed at its in-house print shop (roughly $300), reported Texas Scorecard.

A public information request shows that Round Rock ISD spent $640.53 in taxpayer money to buy the Pride swag.

The expenditures caught the attention of some on social media.

“Hey, #txlege @RoundRockISD has limited fund$ for Teachers, Educational Assistants, classrooms, and facilities and needs MORE $$$, but they have $640.53 to buy [rainbow] stickers and fans to show their support for sexualizing our kids,” Christie Slape posted on X.

“Round Rock ISD @RoundRockISD board trustees, teachers, and students represented the district at an LGBTQ+ pride event which featured drag queens exposing their cr*tch area to kids while kids handed them cash tips for their provocative performance,” Libs of TikTok claimed on X.

The district stated that it did not have to pay a fee for its booth at the event, and no taxpayer money was used to pay wages or overtime to Round Rock ISD police officers who were present in uniform at the event, per Texas Scorecard.

Round Rock ISD has had a history of promoting Pride Month. In previous news releases, the district has reiterated its support for the notion.

“Every student matters. We are here to teach and nurture the potential in every Round Rock ISD student. We welcome ALL in our schools. Happy PRIDE Month to every LGBTQIA2S+ student, staff member, and the friends and families that support them! … And although attitudes and injustices remain, the long-standing tradition of Pride Month promotes LGBTQIA+ dignity, equal rights, and self-affirmation,” reads a district statement from May 26, 2022.

Despite the apparent support from the Round Rock ISD press release, not everyone in the district supports using taxpayer money for Pride events.

“Round Rock ISD trafficks in gaslighting. First, they say they’re broke. Then they waste money on swag for an event where drag queens are featured twerking in front of children. Then they tell you it’s ok because it wasn’t very much money,” said Round Rock ISD Trustee Danielle Weston, per Texas Scorecard.

Round Rock ISD is not the only school district to face criticism for exposing minors to gender ideology and potentially inappropriate information.

As previously reported by The Dallas Express, Dallas ISD was exposed for advising students through a research guide on how to transition, including providing students with clinics that offer transgender services.

The Dallas Express reached out to Round Rock ISD’s school board members and Superintendent Hafedh Azaiez but did not get a response.

Board members include Amber Feller Landrum, Tiffanie Harrison, Alicia Markum, Chuy Zárate, Mary Bone, Amy Weir, and Danielle Weston.
