At the Central Pennsylvania Pride Festival, a man without a shirt teaches children how to pole dance

People on Twitter are talking about a viral social media post that seems to show a young boy pole dancing at a gay pride event in Pennsylvania while people cheer him on.

“A pride event in PA featured a stripper pole where they taught kids how to pole dance,” the Twitter account LibsofTikTok posted on Thursday along with a TikTok video showing a young boy with a rainbow skirt pole dancing after a man with no shirt gave him instructions. 

“Central PA Pride had a pole set up with an amazing instructor to assist,” the caption on the post read. “My kiddo is a natural!”

The hashtags on the post seem to be related to the Central Pennsylvania Pride Festival, which took place over the weekend in Harrisburg.

The video was taken down from LibsofTikTok's page not long after it was posted there.

A letter from Pennsylvania's Democratic Governor Tom Wolf, who supports the event, was also posted on the popular conservative Twitter account.

“@GovernorTomWolf do you condone these actions?” the account asked.

Fox News Digital asked Wolf's office for a comment, but they didn't answer right away.

The video was criticized by many people on Twitter, who called out the parents and said the scene was wrong.

“This is profoundly inappropriate,” Federalist Correspondent Tristan Justice posted. “Gays who promote this type of grooming are doing such a disservice to gay people.”

Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire tweeted, "I will never vote for a Republican candidate at any level of government who doesn't promise to use all legal means to stop this kind of thing and punish everyone who did it."
