A program that aims to give young children unabashedly queer role models is making its way across the U.S. via various public libraries.
Who wants to be a drag queen when they grow up? an adult male dressed in drag asks a group of children at the Brooklyn Public Library during a recent installment of Drag Queen Story Hour.
Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores, the initiatives website states. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.
DQSH has been conducted at the Brooklyn Public Library in Park Slope since last fall, Christian News reported, with drag queens reading to children on such topics as homosexuality, gender identity and non-conformity, and general youth discomfort.
The recent Brooklyn session was chronicled on video by the UK media outlet Channel 4 News and shared on social media.
In it, drag queen Lil Hot Mess is singing to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus, and has the children up dancing along with his rendition of The hips on the drag queen go swish, swish, swish.
DQSH has a quote from the Brooklyn Public Librarys Director of Youth and Family Services on its About webpage endorsing its program.
Drag Queen Story Hour is a fun and important program that celebrates diversity in the way that children may dress and act, Judy Zuckerman states. It encourages children to look beyond gender stereotypes and embrace unfettered exploration of self. Programs like DQSH encourage acceptance of difference and help to prevent bullying, while providing an enjoyable literary experience.
DQSH was started in San Francisco by author Michelle Tea, whose writings concern various areas, including queer culture and feminism. Tea also founded RADAR Productions, a platform for emerging queer artists, according to its website information. The San Francisco DQSHs are managed through the organization.
The San Francisco program is part of a broader effort at Queering the Castro, or highlighting the full range of queer culture, according SFGate.
Besides New York and San Francisco, Drag Queen Story Hours are being held in Los Angeles, and other cities across the U.S., Canada, and the UK, according to its website.
DQSHs are scheduled in New York and San Francisco into June. A New York Times report said they will be expanding this spring and summer into Harlem, another Manhattan location, and to the Bronx.
The DQSH Facebook page also promotes DQSH for additional sites nationwide, stating, Looking for a Pride activity for your preschool or elementary school? Bring Drag Queen Story Hour to your school this June!
Better get a Bucket...
I can guess what happens to schools that decline the ‘opportunity’ to have drag queen story hour.
I hope most schools resist it anyway, for the children.
Allow the students to just be children. Actual childhood doesn’t last that long. Stop trying to confuse, indoctrinate and remold into distorted images.
“gender fluidity of childhood”
They state this as if it is a scientific fact, but cannot decide when life begins?
It’s always about the children with the homosexual agenda. 90% of it is focused right at them. Because if you can confuse them early, when they’re vulnerable to influence, you can imprint them with your type of depravity. Misery loves company.
It’s OBVIOUS that they are passionate about destroying the moral code that most of us have learned from our parents.
F*ck the left.
Wait, I thought the reason we had to accept every bit of the sexual circus of the left was because they were "born that way" and it wasn't a choice. Now it is an option if you want to be one?
This is vile.
Something once said about a millstone comes to mind.
years ago these maggots would have been driven out of towns in shame-
Poor little kids.
First time I saw a drag queen, I was in my 20s, and some friends insisted we all go to a nightclub in Chicago where all the waitresses, bartenders, entertainers were dressed in drag. Oh, so very convivial. I sat there about ten minutes and started to cry. No matter how much these drag queens pretended, they would NEVER know what it was like to be a woman.
So if I was in shock and distress at 25, I can only imagine the strangeness and distortions of reality rearranging brain cells and emotions in tiny kids’ heads. Natural Law is inborn. We intrinsically know what’s OK and what isn’t.
But, I’ll probably regret it.
How sick...shouldn’t they be charged with ‘Corrupting the values of a Minor’? Of course, the ‘parents’ of those kids are helping corrupt them.
Further confirmation that this country has gone insane. The end is near.
BFL? Never seen that one before (I lead a sheltered life).
Just when you think they can’t get any sicker they surprise you.
