Texas Governor Greg Abbott has ordered an investigation into an allegation by a parent that a teacher took his son to a drag queen show which was attended by a convicted sex offender.
The claim was made by during a Houston Independent School District board meeting last week.
“He took him to a drag show when he was underage and it was really bad. It was a really bad experience. He also put him next to this sex offender when he was out there with my son,” the parent said at the meeting.
I am directing the Texas Education Agency to investigate this matter. https://t.co/ZnRjf2Xfns

The parent said the teacher, who is also a “writer for an LGBTQ magazine,” “recruited” his 16-year-old son and exposed him to a pedophile who was previously convicted for an assault on an 8-year-old child.
The parent said his son took videos and photos at the event and also has proof of his communication with the teacher in the form of text messages.
