Drag Queen Story Hour & Costume Party

Happy Halloween! We're so excited to host our second drag queen storytime, and this time we invite you and your children to come dressed in your best Halloween costume. 

Our local guest queens - Athena Kills, Scalene Onixxx, and Starmie Sparxxx - will read from our favorite spooky reads. This special storytime is appropriate for children, usually between the ages of 3-8; toddlers and babies are still welcome!

Have any concerns?

Many children express gender fluidity. Drag Queen Story Hour helps kids embrace gender diversity in themselves and in others, and help to curb bullying of LGBTQ children and kids who may be perceived as different in all kinds of ways. LGBTQ-positive programs are a vital part of making the world a safe and affirming place for all children. LGBTQ children need role models, and all children should learn to embrace gender diversity and learn empathy. 

What is a drag queen?: Drag is an artistic way of expressing yourself and showing the world different parts of who you are and who you want to be. Drag queens often express their feminine sides or different aspects of their gender and personality through dressing up, putting on performances, marching in parades, and volunteering in their communities. There are drag queens, drag kings, drag princes, and drag princesses—anyone can be any of the above! All that matters is that, when you play and dress up, you feel comfortable and creative. 

What if my children have questions and I don’t know how to answer them?: There are many things in the world that are confusing. Adults don’t always have all the answers, but we can ask questions and learn together. Visit Drag Queen Story Hour or Sez Me for more information and resources.
