A viral video showing a 10 year old boy dancing for money at a New York gay bar is causing a stir online. The boy, "Drag Kid” Desmond Is Amazing, was caught on video dancing at Brooklyn gay bar on December 1st.

The ten-year-old boy danced on stage in female clothes - he was wearing a "crop top" and full face of makeup. And while the boy danced, the crowd of adult men in the audience were showering the boy with dollar bills.

The event, called Club Whoa! was hosted at Brooklyn gay bar 3 Dollar Bill and was promoted on social media. Desmond posted pics and video from the performance on his own Instagram page, which has 105,000 followers. 

But after the news of the video went viral, Desmond removed all indications from the event.

The venue hosting the 10 year old "dance" event describes itself as “queer owned & operated we foster a safe space from love. we respect all human persons as long as those human persons are also respectful to the ones around them.”

Here are pics from the event - trigger warning
