County event ‘Pride’ on the verge of a ban after a cast member’s wardrobe malfunction

A Colorado county commissioner said Monday he may work to ban a future Pride event after an incident said to have been caused by a wardrobe malfunction.

George Teal, a Douglas County commissioner, wrote on Facebook about the incident at PrideFest on Saturday, when at one point a performer’s artificial breasts were exposed.

“This isn’t the first year we’ve all dealt with Pridefest issues,” Teal wrote. “I think we had a zoning violation for the fair this weekend. Exotic entertainment for adults is not permitted in the fairgrounds.”

Castle Rock Pride organizers issued an apology on Facebook on Monday, saying the incident was unintentional and was caused by a clothing malfunction.

“One of our performer’s outfits changed during an aerial stunt show, revealing the fake nipples on the silicone breastplate that was part of the costume,” the organizers wrote. “We want to make it clear that this was not a planned part of the show. Castle Rock Pride has not sanctioned this and we do not find it acceptable at Douglas County PrideFest either. It is unfortunate that this incident, although accidental, happened.”

Teal said it doesn’t matter if the incident was accidental, adding that “a group of military veterans is having a party where a scantily clad young lady jumps out of a cake … It’s just not allowed at our funded county fairs public”. “

He also said that given the “zoning violation” of the fair’s use, he plans to vote to “ban Pridefest from returning in the future.”

“There is compelling evidence that organizers cannot or at least cannot prevent participants from performing exotic acts of adult entertainment,” he added.

Commissioner Abe Laydon has not said whether he will vote for or against the ban, according to KDVR, while Commissioner Lora Thomas said she will decide after all the facts and evidence emerge.

“Just to remind you, my colleagues and I are district commissioners. We can’t arrest anybody for breaking state law … we’re not the sheriff,” Teal said. “We can’t prosecute anyone for violating state law… We’re not the district attorney. However, we can make rules and regulations for the use of Douglas County, Colorado property.”

Castle Rock Pride said in another statement on Facebook, without naming Teal, that “it is unacceptable that there are politicians who would characterize our family entertainment as adult exotic dancing and want to use this one incident as an excuse to pursuing his agenda for undermines diversity and equity and inclusion for all in Douglas County.

“On behalf of Castle Rock Pride, we sincerely apologize for the costume malfunction that occurred at our recent Douglas County PrideFest on August 27th. We are a group of parents creating this event so that all families and children can enjoy a day of food, games, music and just plain fun in a safe, non-judgemental environment [sic] Approach.”

Heather Gonzales, one of the founders of PrideFest in Douglas County, accused Teal of being “homophobic,” adding that he “has an agenda in the LGBTQ+ community. This is nothing but a blatant attack on the community.”
