One Million Moms, a project of the Christian conservative American Family Association (AFA), is livid at Macy's for including a performance by the Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots in its annual Thanksgiving Day Parade.

“Shame on Macy's for promoting this,” the group wrote. “We cannot trust Macy's Dept. Store any longer. This is the straw that broke the camel's back. It is clear that Macy's does not have our children's best interest in mind. Macy's need to know that trust must be earned and once trust is lost it is difficult to get back.”

Kinky Boots tells the story of a young man who turns around a shoe factory when he teams up with a drag queen. The parade included a performance of the musical number Raise You Up, which celebrates diversity. (Video of the performance is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Raise You Up was not suitable for families for many reasons,” One Million Moms wrote. “The inappropriate act starred Kinky Boots, referencing a musical written to celebrate the differences in each other and included: (all) the men and women in thigh-high boots [mostly red pleather while others were sparkly 'hooker' boots], a man in boxer shorts and men in burlesque and Moulin rouge costumes prancing around expressing themselves, RuPaul (famous drag queen) along with several men dressed in drag, transgender and transvestites, singing and dancing as an expression of 'diversity' and honoring whatever sexuality you want.”
