A judge in Milwaukee who also served as CEO and president of an LGBTQ+ foundation in Wisconsin that supported “Drag Queen Story Hour” events was arrested and charged last week with seven counts of possessing child pornography.

Brett Blomme, an elected judge for a branch of the Milwaukee County Circuit Court, was also head of the Cream City Foundation—which promoted numerous “Drag Queen Story Hour” events for children.

In a statement, Cream City Foundation said the following: “The Cream City Foundation is deeply troubled, angered and shocked to learn of the allegations involving our former CEO, Brett Blomme. Cream City Foundation categorically denounces the actions he is accused of as abhorrent and totally contrary to the values that Cream City Foundation holds dear. We are deeply concerned about the young victims of all child sex crimes and we reiterate our commitment to the safety and well-being of all youth in our community. Cream City Foundation remains committed to serving the LGBTQ+ community.”

Blomme, as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported, is accused of uploading 27 videos and pictures of child sexual abuse to a messaging app under the name “DomMasterBB.”

“Each count against Blomme carries with it a minimum sentence of three years with the potential for up to 15 years with a decade of supervised release,” noted the Fox News website. “With seven counts charged against him, Blomme is looking at a minimum of 21 years in prison should he be convicted.”

Blomme, 38, has a husband—and the couple has two adopted children, according to reports.

“Court records do not suggest [those children] are part of any of the illegal images,” the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said. “Child Protective Services is involved with their current placement, defense attorney Christopher Van Wagner said during the hearing.”

Over the past few years, “Drag Queen Story Hour” events have spread across the country, in local libraries and bookstores, for very young children. A national organization known as Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH), beginning in 2015, has been attempting to show “glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models” to young children, according to the group’s website.

Most conservatives, however, have grave reservations about situations or organizations that expose very young children to such activity.
