The National Audubon Society has joined forces with a drag queen to promote climate change alarmism.
"For Pride Month, Audubon partnered with drag queen and intersectional environmentalist Pattie Gonia, to bring you Birds Tell Us: The Song of the Meadowlark, a message of hope for the future of our planet," Audubon noted.
In a video, Pattie Gonia, who identifies on Instagram as a "professional homosexual," can be seen clad in a winged costume.
"Birds tells us ... that the climate is changing," Gonia says as music plays during the video.
In response to a tweet about the project John Hawkins commented, "You guys desperately need to hire a regular person to run stuff like this by in the future because apparently no one there is in touch with what normal human beings think."
Conservative commentator Matt Walsh tweeted an image of Pattie Gonia and remarked, "Serious question: why do drag queens always dress like either the evil step mother in a Disney film or a character from Nightmare Before Christmas? Is this what they think women look like? Have they ever seen a woman in real life?" In another tweet he added, "And how is this not considered at least as offensive as black face?"
Audubon noted on its website that "Pattie Gonia, the drag persona of Wyn Wiley, is an environmentalist who uses her platform to highlight issues around climate change and inclusivity in the outdoors" and that "Pattie wants more LGBTQ+ people to feel empowered to engage with nature and the outdoors."
"Nature can be a part of your lives as queer people. You don’t have to run to a big city to find yourself!" Pattie Gonia said.
"The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation," according to its website.
