‘DRAG QUEEN STORY HOURS’ FOR KIDS IN PUBLIC LIBRARIES FLOURISHING ACROSS THE COUNTRY – VIDEO

Posted on Updated on

 

 

Indoctrinating kids to be gay! Watch out for drag queens visiting your public libraries and telling drag stories to young children, thanks to a non-profit group called Drag Queen Story Hour. According to School Library Journal, the program is flourishing coast to coast and that’s because while some parents are horrified, there are others who love it.

QUESTION: Are public libraries also open and accepting to Christian organizations who would teach Bible stories to children? I don’t think so. They better make sure no Muslims are in sight when they do this.

Drag Queen Story Hours Flourishing on Both Coasts

 

( SLJ ) A special type of storytime is springing up in libraries and book stores in California and New York, thanks to a non-profit group called Drag Queen Story Hour. The organization states on its website that readers in drag can “capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and give kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”

Storytimes featuring drag queens started in San Francisco in December 2015, first with celebrity drag queens, such as Honey Mahogany, who was featured on the TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race. The San Francisco-area events are usually held at the Eureka Valley (CA)/Harvey Milk Memorial Library.

“The Drag Queen Story Hour demonstrates the dynamic wit and ingenuity of the queer community and the power of a good story to forge positive personal connections,” says William Johnson, program director for LAMBDA Literary.

The concept moved to the East Coast in August of 2016, when Brooklyn’s Greenlight Bookstore hosted a story hour. That event caught the eye of local public librarians. Both the New York Public Library and the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) have recently held them. Boston Public Library has one coming up.

“Those of us who work with young children on a regular basis know that children can dress and act in a variety of ways, and supporting their choices builds self-confidence and can help avoid serious problems later in life,” says Judy Zuckerman, director of youth and family services for BPL. “By creating an atmosphere of acceptance, and reading stories about acceptance of differences, we are hoping to stave off teasing and bullying.”
