Democrat President Joe Biden’s State Department is spending more than $20,000 for a cultural center in Ecuador to host “drag theater performances.”

“The State Department awarded a $20,600 grant on Sept. 23 to the Centro Ecuatoriano Norteamericano (CEN), a non-profit organization supported by the U.S. Embassy and Consulate in Ecuador, to ‘promote diversity and inclusion’ in the region,” Fox News reported.

According to the State Department’s grant listed on the USASpending.gov website, the project at CEN began on September 30 and runs until August 31, 2023. The project will include “3 workshops,” “12 drag theater performances,” and a “2 minute documentary.”

The grant is part of the State Department’s public diplomacy program, which seeks to “support the achievement of U.S. foreign policy goals and objectives, advance national interests, and enhance national security by informing and influencing foreign publics and by expanding and strengthening the relationship between the people and government of the United States and citizens of the rest of the world,” the website states.

“The State Department has awarded hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to the CEN over the years, but the September grant appears to be the first of its kind funding drag performances,” Fox News reported. “The State Department has awarded hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to the CEN over the years, but the September grant appears to be the first of its kind funding drag performances.”
