Photographs included in the Facebook post show the elementary school students at Rosie’s Bar and Grill, a gay bar in Wilton Manors, Florida.

The post has ignited outrage on social media outlets.

“Leave out everything else – why in God’s name are they bringing elementary school kids to establishments that aren’t supposed to admit anyone under 21?” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) tweeted. “Also, homeschool your kids!”

Libs of Tik Tok tweeted, “A school in @browardschools district took elementary age kids to a gay bar on a field trip today.”

One Twitter user emphasized, “The kind of bar is not even the point… it’s a BAR…”

Former Fox Newsradio host Todd Starnes tweeted, “Teachers took grade schoolers on a field trip to a gay bar. Imagine the outrage if they had taken the kids on a field trip to church.”
