What is Drag Story Hour?
Back by popular demand! Drag Story Hour is just what it sounds like! Storytellers using the art of drag to read books to kids in libraries, schools, and bookstores. Drag Story Hour 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 everyone can be their authentic selves.
- 11 – 11:45 am
- 1 – 1:45 pm
The story hour will last about 40 minutes and be repeated in the afternoon.
