Nickelodeon's children's show "Blue's Clues & You" has released a video featuring a drag queen singing with gay, transgender, and non-binary animals during a parade for Pride Month.
To the tune of the children’s song, "The Ants Go Marching," drag queen Nina West urges the young audience to celebrate gay, lesbian, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, and bisexual parents.

During the sing-along, the animated drag queen is holding a microphone with the "black power" fist symbol on it.
"My pal Blue and I are welcoming Pride this year! Come sing with us!" West wrote on Instagram.

CBN News previously reported that Nickelodeon has increased its efforts to indoctrinate young children with LGBTQ identities and issues.
In February, Blue's Clues & You aired an ABC song on YouTube recognizing the LGBTQ community.
As each letter of the alphabet was highlighted throughout the song, the beloved dog Blue bounced from page to page of a book teaching children what each one stands for.

"P is full of Pride" Blue sings, while multiple flags representing the LGBTQ community are displayed including the transgender, pansexual, intersex, asexual, gender-fluid community, and more.
At the end of the song, Blue says "the alphabet helps me be me."
Last December, the children's TV network collaborated with transgender actor Michael D. Cohen to help young transgender or "nonbinary" people become actors with a "Trans Youth Acting Challenge."
And last summer, Nickelodeon tweeted a picture of Spongebob Squarepants celebrating Pride Month, leaving many wondering if the beloved character is supposed to be part of the LGBTQ community.

Comments about the song on social media were mixed, ranging from strong approval to sadness and outrage. Others said that such content about sexual orientation did not belong on a children's network.
