Macy’s iconic Thanksgiving Day Parade – airing on NBC – goes ‘woke’

The iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade will feature two musical acts by non-binary performers, proving that no institution in America is immune from the gender non-conformity insanity the left is pushing on the country.

Then again, that may not be the most troubling aspect of the traditional parade, considering Cher will be the headliner. That’s right, the 77-year-old Trump-hating left-wing diva known for her ALL CAPS political ranting on social media will be performing.

As might be expected Cher is peddling her first new album in 5 years, titled “Christmas,” which explains the timely appearance in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The family-friendly holiday event will be broadcast on NBC and will include performances from the Broadway shows Shucked and & Juliet. In both shows, gender “non-binary” performers star in major roles, Breitbart News reported.

More from the conservative outlet:

Shucked stars Alex Newell, a biological male, who won a Tony Award this year for his performance in the female role of Lulu.

Newell, who uses “he/she/they” pronouns, has identified as a male in the past, describing himself as “a little black gay boy from Massachusetts” in a 2016 interview. However, Newell has worn women’s clothes in recent public appearances, and dressed in a simmering gold ball gown for the Tonys.

& Juliet — a jukebox musical riff on Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet — features actor Justin David Sullivan, who also identifies as “non-binary.”

In the stage musical, Sullivan plays the role of “May,” a “non-binary” friend of Julie

 

Earlier this year, Sullivan rejected eligibility for the Tony Awards, saying the traditional categories need to become more “inclusive” of gender non-conforming actors.

“I was told that I had to choose [the category in which] I felt comfortable, and in that process, I struggled a lot,” Sullivan told Playbill. “I felt like I couldn’t choose. I didn’t feel right being in either category because it didn’t resonate with me. I decided the only thing that felt right to me would be to abstain from nomination consideration.”

“I hope that this is a wake-up call to not only the Tonys, but for every award show to celebrate everyone and to make sure they’re being inclusive,” the actor added. “Things are shifting. There are so many gender-queer and gender-expansive artists in our community, and they bring so much to the table. So it hurts, and it was a really hard decision to make.”

The Tonys, co-presented by The Broadway League and The American Theatre Wing, responded at the time to say it was working to address the concern.

“We recognize that the current acting categories are not fully inclusive, and we are currently in discussion about how to best adjust them to address this,” the statement said. “Unfortunately, we are still in process on this and our rules do not allow us to make changes once a season has begun. We are working thoughtfully to ensure that no member of our community feels excluded [on the basis of gender identity] in future seasons.”
