The kids of Soldotna are not sheltered from the culture wars. Starting off 2024 with a bang, the drag queen community is returning to Soldotna, where the library will host a “drag queen story hour” and events will include several performances by men making themselves into grotesque representations of women.
The misogynistic-themed events include a trivia night and karaoke.
For parents who want to steer clear of the Soldotna Public Library on Jan. 6, there’s always the read-aloud with Mr. Wray at Nikiski Hardware Store on Saturday mornings, from 9-10 am.
Drag queens took over the public park in Soldotna during the summer and performed for children during Pride Month, much to the alarm of many parents in the area.
