TRANSCRIPT
 

Four hundred LGBT and Antifa activists descended on approximately 100 Catholics in Broomfield, Colorado Saturday morning outside the local library.

The occasion? A prayer vigil against a drag queen story hour.  

Inside, the drag queen — Shirley Delta Blow — a local elementary school teacher at Northglenn's The Studio School, read Be Who You Are to a capacity crowd of children and their parents.

Outside, hundreds of LGBT activists, masked Antifa members as well as local parents and children, shouted and used other intimidation tactics, including a brass band, to overwhelm the faithful.

Working together, the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property and the archdiocese of Denver's Respect Life Committee organized the group praying the Rosary. 

The considerably larger group of activists formed a loud wall between the Catholics and the parents and children entering the library.

According to its Facebook page, the Parasol Patrol, "was formed out of a need to protect our children's senses from the onslaught of hateful speech from protesters."

One Catholic participant told Church Militant, "I was shocked at how many, and how well-organized the LGBT activists were," adding, "Catholics are taking the lead on this front just as we have in the pro-life movement."

Catholic organizers also said they thought it was important to engage the assault on the family at the local level.
