Once again, we’ll be featuring Drag Queen Story Hour at the Rainbow Book Fair!
Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. 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. Our resident queen will share a story and craft activities with kids from ages 3-8 (although kids and adults of all ages are welcome!).
The Story Hour will be at 3pm in the Pat Parker/Vito Russo Library.
