Colorado mom Erin Lee has sued a public school for recruiting sixth-graders, including her daughter, into a secret after-school club focused on gender and sexuality.
Lee’s lawsuit alleges that the club was deceptively advertised as an “art” club, according to a report from Fox News.
Lee’s daughter was among the students who joined the club, where an external presenter discussed topics such as gender, sexuality, polyamory, and suicide.
The presenter also allegedly spoke about puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, cautioning the children that their parents might not be “safe” people to confide in about their identity struggles.
The lawsuit against Wellington Middle School and Poudre School District, situated about 70 miles north of Denver, seeks accountability and transparency.
Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is representing Lee.
Per Fox News, the Poudre School District has confirmed the existence of the club and stated that discussions within the club “may be confidential,” but declined to address Lee’s specific allegations, citing the need to protect the privacy of the student and their family.
