Michael Guglielmo: A Father Dressed up as Julius Caesar in a School Board Meeting to Protest “Gender Confusion” in a New Hampshire Public School District

A Concord, New Hampshire father has made headlines after he dressed up as Julius Caesar in a school board meeting to voice his concerns about the Concord School District’s alleged promotion of “gender confusion.”

Michael Guglielmo attended the meeting on Monday wearing a Julius Caesar costume and claimed to be the emperor of Rome and also a female. He used this theatrical act to emphasize his point that the public school district is “facilitating gender confusion.”

Guglielmo called for the suspension of both Concord School District Superintendent Kathleen Murphy and Christa McAuliffe Elementary School Principal Kristen Gallo for allowing an art teacher, Silas Allard, who identifies as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, to continue teaching in the elementary school.

Guglielmo has been openly critical of Allard for wearing traditionally female clothing during the school day and for sharing previous social media posts he deemed inappropriate for children.

This led to an interaction between Guglielmo and Allard, which prompted the school district to ban Guglielmo from visiting McCauliffe Elementary last month.

The school district cited Guglielmo’s actions as harassment after he had asked Allard to take a photograph and then proceeded to ask Allard to pose for the photo, which Allard declined.

Guglielmo’s criticisms of Allard prompted the Concord School District to place him on leave and launch an investigation into the issue. However, the district ultimately decided to bring Allard back to the classroom.

At the school board meeting, many attendees waved signs reading “Choose Love” and “Love Is Stronger than Hate.” Meanwhile, Guglielmo showed up wearing a Julius Caesar costume to protest the school board’s decision to bring Allard back.

Guglielmo argued that the school board’s duty is to act in the best interest of children by teaching truth and facts, not a social agenda.

He further asserted that taxpayers deserve to have their children taught what they pay for, which he believes is not a social agenda, whether it be right or left.

A spokesperson for the Concord School District stated that the district “rejects all forms of hatred and discrimination” and aims to “rejoice” in the diversity of its community.

This incident reflects the ongoing controversy surrounding certain curricula and materials being taught in public schools across the country, including critical race theory and certain books in public libraries.
