Fairfax County School Board member Karl Frisch was sworn in for a second term on a stack of controversial LGBTQIA2S books, some of which have been removed from schools due to their explicit sexual content.

The books, including “All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “Flamer,” contain graphic sexual encounters and have sparked controversy.

“All Boys Aren’t Blue describes graphic sexual encounters involving boys, and Flamer contains sexual interactions. Gender Queer contains images of a boy performing fellatio on another man, as well as images of a boy masturbating,” The Daily Caller Foundation noted.

“The images are so graphic that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had his live news feed cut after showing the images during a press conference in March.”

Frisch, the first openly LGBTQIA+ person elected to local office in Fairfax County, emphasized the need for safe and inclusive schools and equitable access to education after his swearing-in.

“[H]e ultimately garnered more votes than any candidate for School Board in Providence District history, becoming the first openly LGBTQIA+ person elected to local office in Fairfax County,” Frisch’s bio says.

“Fairfax County residents want safe and inclusive schools with exceptional, well-compensated educators and equitable access to the rigorous academic and enrichment opportunities every student needs to succeed,” Frisch said.

“I am grateful for the trust Providence District families have placed in me, and with tonight’s Oath, I commit to standing strong for these values and advancing these priorities with my new and returning colleagues,” he added.

Notably, four of the books he used for the ceremony are among the top five most banned books by the American Library Association.
