First Youtube ,then picked up by an LGBT parody site: More origin story here: https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/video-young-boy-twerking-pride-has-homophobes-outraged150615/
Trace the trail.
I’m not criticizing you or anybody here. Origins are sometimes hard to trace.Several sources say that This is the video that launched Desmond is Amazing‘s career.But was it him? I don’t know. Now I’m thinking it probably wasn’t. I’d have to look into an official backstory to find out.BUT, I was able to at least trace its internet origins.It’s cherry picked for outrage.Look. I did a little magic. So you can head count. Add a few for the sides.
No. I hadn’t looked into it yet.
But look at this:In 2013:
220,000 police.I don’t know about 2015 but trend was growing.So: This is 8-12 adults that might all be watching a short dance by a boy.Out of 5,000,000.So. what’s the issue I’m missing?
Ok. For you. 2015: Official bio.https://desmondisamazing.com/- Participated in GMHC’s AIDS Walk New York
– Went viral for dancing in the NYC Pride’s Pride MarchWhat I don’t know is:
a) Was this him and this was NYC?
b) Was this not him and Sao Paulo?I’m basically quote checking but for a video. Four years of this vid popping up over and over.
I hate false info going around. It gets me nuts.I’ll gladly do a “if this was my kid” thing but I don’t know the circumstances of THIS one yet.
You gotta understand man. I downloaded EVERY writing of Tesla to use as a Tesla fact checker a few years ago. Did same for Einstein.Too much BS floats around. I do what I can even if it makes me look stupid.
Ok. I did my duty. called me here. I did my due diligence. Tracked the source. Gave my opinions. Mission accomplished.
It’s not Desmond.
It’s a random dancing kid at the Sao Paulo, Brazil gay pride thing in 2015.
Desmond did a walk at the gay pride parade n NYC in 2015.Fact checking can be annoying but it’s satisfying when answers are found.
No shirt and only shorts in Sao Paulo Brazil is not strange for anybody of any age.And dancing in Brazil looks sexual to innocent US eyes.If it was NYC? Ok. But Brazil? Not surprised.
Here: Do a Youtube search for Dancando. You’ll be scandalized to find folks of any age dancing “like that”.That’s Brazilian dancing.
I did my duty. You asked, I researched, I gave my thoughts on what facts I see.
