Illinois Proud Boys may be planning to disrupt a drag queen event in Aurora on Saturday.

The event, Drag me to Brunch: Naughty or Nice | Holiday Edition, will be at El Jefe Leña y Mar on Saturday morning. It should be pointed out that this is not an all-ages event. It is a 21 and over event for adults with tickets costing $25 each.

That doesn’t seem to matter to the Proud Boys. According to a Telegram post found by the Antifascist Rumor Mill Twitter account, the Proud Boys are claiming it is an all-ages event and plan to protest.

The Telegram post, in both English and Spanish, calls for the parents of children attending to be doxxed. Nevermind that as a 21 and over event, there won’t be children there.

“DO NOT ALLOW THIS ABUSE TO FALL ON DEAF EARS,” the post reads. “SHAME THEM UNTIL THEY SEE THIER (sic) EVIL WAYS. ALLOW CHILDREN TO GROW UP UNBAISED (sic) AND DECIDE WHEN THEY ARE OF AGE.”

This is planned the same day as Proud Boys in Ohio plan to disrupt a story hour in Columbus, Ohio.

Illinois Eagle does not have confirmation that the Proud Boys will be there, but the drag brunch is scheduled. Be aware of your surroundings if you attend.
