One beginner Girl Scout in California sold out her entire cookie inventory when drag queens and gay bar patrons started lining up. On two separate Sundays in early February, 7-year-old Siena Levin sold each and every one of her coveted cookie boxes when she took her stash to West Hollywood, a prominently LGBTQ neighborhood in Los Angeles.
Levin told Yahoo Life that during this Girl Scout cookie season (Yup, IKYMI, it’s that time of year!), she wanted to find a “high traffic, low competition” area for her stand so she could raise as much money as possible for her troop.
Well, she certainly accomplished her mission! With the help of her mom Jenn, her little sister Riley, her aunt Julie, and local drag queens and gay bar patrons — who Siena said were friendly, kind, generous, and “really good tippers” — the young Girl Scout has raked in the dough for her Glendale, California troop. She has also earned her “My First Cookie Business” badge and the “Cookie Goal Setter” badge.
“It was so fun,” she said. “We were just walking and they’d stop, When they see one person buying, they’d all crowd in. One of the guys who bought cookies, he was really funny because he said, ‘You’re gonna make me fat!'”
“Some of the guys at the bar, they were trying to help us with sales,” Jenn said. “They were yelling out for us, telling people to walk by. They were like, ‘You wanna buy some cookies? They take Venmo!'”
Levin’s aunt, a producer for The Bachelorette, shared a video of Siena’s sales and her excited customers on Instagram.
“Siena goes to Weho for Sunday Funday! Selling Girl Scout Cookies has never been so fun!
🍪❤️🧡💛💚💜🍪,” she captioned the post.
Her comment section was flooded with support.
“Congratulations! She’s a future CEO. And I’m just sad I missed out getting some cookies! Please come back Siena I need me some cookies!!!” one follower said.
“🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌” NSYNC member Lance Bass commented.
Meanwhile, pastor Kevin Swanson has said that Girl Scout leaders should be executed for “promoting lesbianism.” because they “force kids to sin.” Other pastors and the Liberty Counsel, an anti-LGBTQ+ legal group have called for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies because the organization supports LGBTQ+ rights and “promotes abortion and sexual promiscuity to innocent girls.”
*Rolls eyes and clenches fists*
The LGBTQ+ community are constantly having their rights denied (at best), and that is only being proven further as the state of Tennessee is working to criminalize drag queens. A bill that has been approved by the state’s House and is poised to be approved by the Senate states that “adult cabaret performances” cannot be performed “on public property or in a location where the adult cabaret performance could be viewed by a person who is not an adult.”
So while The Volunteer State spends their time “protecting” children from drag queens, we turn to another one of the comments on Siena’s aunt’s post.
“Tell again how drag queens are hurting children!? Bravo to my fellow queens in WeHo!”
Siena’s mom Jenn said she wants to teach her kids to be accepting and loving towards all kinds of different people.
“Kids really absorb the energy our parents put out there,” she said. “The belief that our parents project out there, spoken or unspoken, our kids are absorbing all that. So, as a parent, I really want to be conscious about what I’m doing, by exposing her to and teaching her about love and acceptance and kindness and good entrepreneurial skills.”
These celeb parents are so proud of their LGBTQ kids.
