Rev. Calvin Robinson Wins £8,000 Settlement in Drag Event Controversy with Royal Academy of Dance

Rev. Calvin Robinson, a GB News presenter, has secured an out-of-court settlement worth £8,000 following his dismissal by the Royal Academy of Dance for expressing opposition to a ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ event held for children at a library in South London. 

He had voiced concerns about what he perceived as the sexualization of minors, which led to his removal from the institution’s education sub-committee. The chief executive and trustees of the Royal Academy of Dance had expressed disapproval of his on-air comments.

Rev. Robinson, supported by the Christian Legal Centre, initiated legal action, claiming harassment and discrimination due to his Christian beliefs. The dance organization decided to settle the case last week, preventing it from proceeding to court.

In response to the settlement, Rev. Robinson criticized the Royal Academy’s position and said, “I am pleased that the bullies did not win and that they have learned you cannot push people out for holding traditional views – Christian views. However, the Royal Academy of Dance has made it clear that they are a radical organization pushing trans theory, queer theory, and critical race theory, all of which are harmful and divisive branches of neo-Marxism.”

He further questioned the logic of the organization’s stance, remarking, “It is sad to see that, on the one hand, they insist on pushing these toxic ideologies upon young people and, on the other hand, call themselves inclusive while excluding anyone with traditionally British views. Say a man can become a woman and invade women’s protected spaces, and you’ll be encouraged; say you are against the sexualization of children, and you’ll be fired from their organization. What does that say about the Royal Academy of Dance? I hope questions are being asked about their Royal charter.”

Rev. Robinson’s case highlights the ongoing debate surrounding issues of inclusivity, diversity, and freedom of speech, particularly within the context of educational institutions and organizations.

In addition to his dispute with the Royal Academy of Dance, Rev. Robinson faced a separate suspension from GB News last week. This suspension followed his support for fellow GB News presenter Dan Wootton, who had also been temporarily removed from the airwaves. Wootton faced backlash after allowing former actor Laurence Fox to make disparaging and misogynistic comments about a political journalist during a live broadcast.

Rev. Robinson’s suspension from GB News shows the growing tension surrounding on-air discourse and the boundaries of free speech in contemporary media.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
