Library brings drag queens, kids together for story hour

It takes a certain something to be a good storyteller: enthusiasm, timing and a flair for the dramatic. Performers at a children’s story hour at a New York City library have all that and then some – they’re drag queens.

About once a month since last fall, the Brooklyn Public Library has been presenting Drag Queen Story Hour, where performers with names such as Lil Miss Hot Mess and Ona Louise regale an audience of young children and their parents. There’s even a drag-queen version of “Wheels on the Bus” in which Lil Miss Hot Mess sings of hips that go “swish, swish, swish” and heels that go “higher, higher, higher.”

    I see years of therapy in these children’s future. I blame the parents.

    And of course we have feminist Trudeau’s bill making its way through the senate today, to make it illegal to say anything nasty about trans gender perverts. And I’m sure everyone in downtown Toronto is anxiously waiting for the date of Trudeau making an official apology for the way perverts were treated in the past. Apparently financial compensation may be offered as well.

      If those with gender dysphoria have their psychiatric conditions recognized as a right, why not everybody?

    Fitting it should take place in NY. The Joos of NY will do anything *Israel* does, to promote perversions, and dysfunction the US, world. The US is not going to hell, the US is hell.

      In case you haven’t noticed – BCF supports Israel, as do the majority of us who post comments on this site. There are plenty of Neo-Nazi sites, where your warped anti-Semitic views will be welcomed. Disseminate your lies at those sites. In other words – F off!
