Drag Queen Story Hour prompts protesters at Crown Heights library
Protesters were at the Crown Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library Thursday morning to speak out against what was meant to be a celebration of diversity.
The Drag Queen Story Hour is a program that has drag queen performers read to children.
Some parents say that the library is promoting drag queens as role models and planting the seed for kids to aspire to that lifestyle.
“Nobody tells the kids that is a man dressed as a woman,” said one parents. “They are bringing these kids in with deception.”
Monica, who read “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus,” said “there is not much you can say to someone who is not willing to listen.”
The chief librarian at the Crown Heights branch says the event has received plenty of support in the community.
