EU spends over £500,000 of taxpayers' money on drag queen shows and diversity projects


The European Union has spent almost €1 million funding drag queen shows and other diversity projects that aim to "blur the lines" on traditional gender roles.

The schemes have been backed by a €892,050 fund from the taxpayer which aimed to tackle issues such as "toxic masculinity" and to create LGBT-friendly schools across the continent, The Telegraph reveals.

Hungary and Poland have found themselves at loggerheads with the EU Commission and Western member states as a result of the cultural divide.

Officials in Budapest and Warsaw harbour fears over their EU funding potentially facing cuts as a result of their conservative stance on LGBT rights and abortion.
