The normalization of cross-dressing, and the teaching of “gender-fluidity” is returning to the Loussac Public Library on Saturday, Oct. 19, when drag queens will greet children and help them get comfortable with men dressed as burlesque women, reading books to them about princess boys. All sponsored by Anchorage taxpayers, of course.
“Come dressed in your fanciest and most fabulous clothes! Or your scariest and spookiest costume. Join fabulous drag queens and kings for stories and songs. Come celebrate reading, creativity, and being the best you! Co -sponsored by Identity, Inc.” the notice for the event reads.
Drag Queen Story Hour is a national organization and movement to teach children about gender fluidity, or the concept that you can be whatever gender you want to be. At events in other parts of the country, the drag queens help children choose their own drag names, circle their “pronouns,” and other “dragtivities.”
Later on Saturday, there will be a separate drag queen story hour event for teens 13 and older and adults of all ages, who can party together in gender-bending costumes. And while costumes are encouraged, the library asks that they be “public appropriate.”
“By popular request we’ve added a second Drag Storytime to our schedule! This time we welcome TEENS AND ADULTS to come listen to a great story read by our local drag kings and queens. Content will be geared to this more mature audience. Costumes and dress up encouraged – please be public appropriate.” http://bit.ly/APLteendragstorytime
