‘Dress up is real:’ Drag queens, public libraries promote gender confusion to 3-year-olds


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 initiative’s 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.”

  1. Decades ago, if anything like that went near kids, in Brooklyn, somebody would punch their lights out. Oh, yes, a patrol car would respond. Report would include, “Male subject tripped and fell”.
