An undercover video recently released by Project Veritas shows New York teachers and administrators conspiring to push children into accepting transgenderism, alternative sexual orientations, and “antiracist” beliefs, especially if they come from conservative Christian families.
Project Veritas uses undercover journalists to secretively record conversations with sources. A video about the teachers’ aims was released by the organization on March 13. It was the result of a five-month investigation of a program called EdCamp and culminated earlier in the month, Project Veritas announced.
The video shows a woman identified as a tenured teacher from Jericho Middle School, part of the Jericho Union Free School District in Jericho, New York. She’s seen encouraging teachers attending the seminar to use tenure, and “lean on your tenured colleagues to do some of this work, because we need you” to help spread gender ideology to even the youngest students.
Waters is the founder of LGBTeach, an activist group that provides workshops to “foster awareness, inclusivity, and reflection.”
“Getting comfortable with discomfort is at the core of the LGBTeach philosophy,” a mission statement on the organization’s website reads. The group’s annual EdCamp event offers teachers instruction on how to spread radical gender ideology at their schools.
In the video, which shows Waters teaching the program at several locations, she says she teaches Spanish and social justice. She says she’s also a social worker, with a practice largely focused on “working with LGBTQ youth and their families.”
She says she loves helping families “practice affirmation through their children’s journeys of sexuality and gender.”
Praising Gender Non-Conformity
The LGBTeach Facebook page alternately bemoans or praises examples of gender conformity or non-conformity.
A display of children’s shoes in Nordstrom Rack, not organized with separate areas for boys and girls, receives a heart emoji on the social media account.
A post about the game Life, with its “heteronormative and gender conforming” implications of marriage between a man and a woman, offers criticism.
“This could easily be made more inclusive if it just said, ‘get married’ without a man and woman standing at the alter (sic) and maybe the people are just people and not pink and blue,” the post reads.
One post on the organization’s page describes the EdCamp agenda.
Sessions for teachers, it says, cover topics such as “Using Literature to Introduce LGBTQIA topics to Elementary-Age Students,” “Voices from the Middle—why MS [Middle School] GSAs [Gender and Sexuality Alliance clubs] are so important,” and “Should MS parents know they are in the GSA Club?”
Starting Sex Change Young
In the Project Veritas video showing EdCamp seminars, Waters can be seen advising teachers to emphasize alternative sexual orientations and gender identities with students as young as possible.
“Elementary educators, this is where it happens, my friends,” Waters is seen telling teachers.
“Because if we could actually do more of this conversation with elementary-age kids, by the time they get to me in middle school, or some of you in high school, we’ll be in a better place. Because honestly, so many of the ‘isms’ and ‘obias’ surrounding gender and sexuality, really have to do with gender.”
She suggested having students new to their classrooms write third-person narratives about themselves, so teachers can assess which pronouns the children prefer, and that they shouldn’t worry about losing time that should be spent teaching other things.
“You’re never losing time on curriculum, if you’re doing what’s best for kids,” Waters says in the video.
“And the truth is, we know that kids are coming out at younger and younger ages” and questioning their gender “as early as two, three years of age.”
In her seminar, Waters is seen on the video encouraging teachers to display sexual-identity flags in classrooms. She gestures to a multi-colored flag behind her, referencing her own “plethora of queer flags” in her own classroom.
The flags, she says, are intended to bring “more inclusivity to a marginalized community,” especially by adding stripes representing people who identify as transgender, “gender non-conforming people, and people of color.”
The Project Veritas video of the seminar also shows a woman identified as Otsego Elementary School special education teacher Rachel Singer sharing tips. She tells other teachers that students with autism are “rigid” about colors, often seeing blue strictly as a boy’s color and pink as a girl’s color.
“We do like, you know, a ‘Wacky Wednesday’ or a ‘Turn Around Tuesday’ where we all switch colors,” Singer said. “I’m making sure that I’m making conscious decisions, too. Every boy is getting something pink, and every girl is getting something blue.”
She also works to be sure she’s “introducing” to young students the idea that boys wear dresses, she said.
But teachers should use “caution” and save their most radical actions to spread gender ideology until after they get tenure, the video shows Waters advising teachers.
“I always tell untenured teachers, ‘You’re going to have more longevity making change, if you maybe play it a little safer for a little longer,” Waters says.
In New York, a teacher has a four-year probation period before earning tenure, according to the United Federation of Teachers.
After a teacher gets tenure, he or she cannot be disciplined or fired without due process, unless that teacher fails to complete the requirements for professional certification. That means tenured teachers can effectively ignore school rules, Waters says in the video.
“Who knows if on Monday I’m gonna come in and I’m gonna be told to take down the flag,” she says of the LGBT pride flag in her classroom.
“But I will do what Sarah did in Connetquot and not do so,” Waters adds, referencing events in another school system. “Thank God for tenure.”
In the video, an undercover Project Veritas journalist, posing as a fan of work to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in schools, secretly records conversations on several occasions with two school administrators identified as co-founders of EdCamp.
One man, identified as Manhasset Public Schools assistant superintendent Don Gately, a founder of EdCamp Long Island, is seen on the video praising DEI programs, and saying his school has a DEI committee.
EdCamp, Gately says on the video, “should be a great vehicle, I think, to do DEI work.”
“In the Project Veritas video showing EdCamp seminars, Waters can be seen advising teachers to emphasize alternative sexual orientations and gender identities with students as young as possible.”
“Elementary educators, this is where it happens, my friends,” Waters is seen telling teachers.
This is the disgraceful, immoral LGBTQ philisophy that the demonic Democrat Party is teaching (brain washing) our children. 🙁
If this doesn’t scare the hell out of you, then you must be a disgraceful LGBTQ thing.
THIS IS PURE AND SIMPLE CHILD ABUSE!!!!! And this is what the treasonous, corrupt, puppet president Joe Biden’s administration and his master tinkerbell Barack Obama is encouraging, supporting and protecting. 🙁 🙁 🙁

“Joe Biden went on to assure the pro-LGBTQ crowd that even though the Obama administration cannot enforce a thought police, people who stand for their religious convictions are in the process of being wiped out — as the White House’s homosexual agenda continues to proliferate across the nation. Carson and others who ascribe to the biblical view of homosexuality should be eradicated from the planet in the name of “equality” and “tolerance.” “
THIS IS WHY we need to END Tenure… NO Protections vs being FIRED.
Back in the olden days, I thought some of my teachers were off the beaten path, but none could hold a candle to these warped morons who profess to be “teachers” nowadays.
Sickening how they try to push their bizarre philosophy on young kids.
Only Dumb Cattle, sheep, horses, pig herd animals defecate in the same places they eat, unless you are a DNA deprived specially bred member of the Democrat purebred Jackass herd, lacking intelligence, strength, and often loud and stubborn, where they pathologically seek to communally herd in the same places where they defecate, and stubbornly insist that the smart, strong, clean living stallions behave in the same manner. Don’t waste your time grooming them because they will soon just end up back in the comfort zoned mud they enjoy, where discomfort is their comfort, sitting on their butts refusing to work, no matter how hard you yank on their leads, but demanding the same ration of oats that other species of their kind actually earn. Their ideas in breaking down the gender binary, and getting rid of girls and boys is to mate with purebred horses that just produce a sterile race of sterile male mules, or infertile female Hinny’s incapable of having children. That not working, they just try to get the fertile horses to submit to outright gelding to get the job done proper, religiously reflecting the human acts of circumcision that gets secularly promoted to full blow organ removal, destroying the survival of their species, by suicidal horsed high priests of their worshipped secular socialism. Call it asinine re-engineering in socialist selective breeding, which ultimately results in the social justice destruction of their own bred out species.
These servants of Satan have been pushing their radical, rebellious views of wickedness upon our young people for generations, but what’s really scary is how fast this is spiraling out of control.
Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;”
Apart from repentance, the will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire.
Revelation 20:14-15 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Pray for their repentance.
Without exception all liberals are either demon possessed or at least demon inspired. And without a doubt, barring repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ every last liberal will spend Eternity in Hell cursing the day they were born. But I honestly believe that the alphabet soup crowd that like their father the devil tries their best to destroy the souls of little children have an especially hot spot in Hell reserved just for them.
Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. 2 It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. Luke 17:1-2
Being sent to Hell and being totally separated from the Lord God Almighty is beyond our comprehension.
We all are in the presence of God from our conception until death, the pain and emptiness of being separated from God is beyond our comprehension.
I never would ever wish that Anyone be sent to Hell.
I wouldn’t waste my breath, praying for them to repent.. WE ALREADY KNOW they are so demon-spawn, that repentance is impossible..
Just how long are “we the people” going to allow these teachers from Satan’s followers make decisions that will surely ruin the lives of our children?!?! When we read stuff like this, the ones of us who are in that area must immediately stand up, go to local school boards, read their own words back to them in public and then demand that those teachers be severely reprimanded.
These are our children and the future of our country, do we want them to grow up being subjected to absolute lunatics trying to convince our children to change their gender just so these lunatic teachers can stand around and pat themselves on the back after they have ruined thousands of young lives?!?!
WAKE UP AMERICA AND START SHOUTING OUT TO THOSE LUNATIC TEACHERS THAT WE ARE MAD AS HELL AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!! And mean what you say!?!?
So tired of this ****!
These teachers are simply sick. There should be teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic. They are responsible for the fall of the public education system.
AND THIS is all no thanks to EVERY ONE of those damnable teachers unions.. GET RID OF THE UNIONS< and we can start getting rid of these so-called teachers!
Many of us answered the call to service and placed our own lives on the line for this? I know that I, for one, definitely did not serve to protect this abomination. God please help us to move on from here.
All this reminds me of the novel called I believe “Animal Farm” and all these so called educators should be named “Napoleon” as it literally fits them well. As for doing this to youn chidren, call it like it is “child abuse” and needs to be investigated as such and not swept under the rug as most of these cases are.
This teacher is a profit, she is so right. Why stop at trangenderism, orientation, binary, the Dewey decimal system and whatever other intellectual ideas that are to be part of our ever changing society…. To this end I now consider myself a TRANS-SPECIES since I now consider myself a dog.
WE need to fight for a society where we have finally eradicated sexuality, genitalia, breasts and other differentiations between dudes and dudettes. Now I add one more layer….. no more species speculations…. The TRANS-QUADRIPED MOVEMENT IS BIRTHED….
I long for the day when I can openly be a dog, a “cock”roach or whatever I feel like being, Equity to the trans-species movement.
Thank you teac-zeh
If this is not sarcasm , you are really a mess ( f—-d up).
