A DRAG queen from Clydebank is at the centre of a furious social media storm sparked by her visit to a primary school.

Nathan Mullen was invited to read to pupils and let them ask questions about what a drag is and what it meant to her.

But a storm erupted when pictures emerged of Miss Mullen simulating sex acts during a drag performance.

Although she uses the name ‘Flow’ when speaking to children, she calls herself ‘FlowJob’ when performing for adults.

Miss Mullen, 21, identifies as a trans woman.

Her invitation to Glencoats Primary School in Paisley sparked a furious backlash, with many people angry that a drag queen should be invited to speak to primary pupils.

Miss Mullen, from Dalmuir, said she was “disgusted and upset by the comments” directed at her, although other comments were supportive.

On Facebook, she said: “The children actually requested a drag queen visit them for the event.

“You take your kids to see panto at Christmas that has drag. Drag is mainstream now.

“It’s on our TVs, in the news and all over social media.

“I went into a school and read a story book, and talked to the children and let them ask me questions about what drag is and what it is to me.

“This school took a step in the right direction and it shouldn’t be getting this backlash. I’m disgusted and upset.”

Miss Mullen was accompanied to the school by the SNP MP Mhairi Black to speak to the pupils’ Rainbow Club during LGBT history month.

Ms Black robustly defended the visit and said that parents who expressed “faux outrage” probably bought their children violent video games.

Writing on Twitter, she said: “You just know that the people pretending to be livid that a drag queen read a book in a school are also the people who run out to buy their kids the latest Grand Theft Auto on release day. Your homophobia is transparent.

“If my school had invited a gay MP and a drag queen to visit during LGBT history month, or even acknowledged that LGBT history month existed, it would have made an immeasurable difference to the difficult childhoods my LGBT classmates and I had.”

But some campaigners criticised Ms Black and said drag was an "adult sexualised parody" and was "not for primary school children".

Glencoats Primary and the school’s head teacher, Michelle Watson, set their Twitter accounts to private after Miss Mullen’s social media posts were highlighted by critics.

Several prominent LGBT campaigners have also put their Twitter accounts to private because of the level of abuse.

Officials from Renfrewshire Council apologised to parents with children at the school.

A spokeswoman said Miss Mullen was invited by the school’s Rainbow Club, who wanted to hear from a drag queen during LGBT history month.

She added that the visit would not have gone ahead if the sexual nature of Miss Mullen’s stage act had been known in advance.

The spokeswoman said: “It is clear in this case that the social media content associated with the speaker’s stage persona is not appropriate for children and had we been aware of this, the visit would not have been arranged. We are sorry for the concern this has caused and are investigating.”
