DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR is exactly what you think: local Drag Queens reading stories to children in libraries and schools. Drag Queen Story Hour captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity in 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. Created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco, DQSH now happens regularly in LA, New York, and San Francisco, and events are popping up in other cities across the US, Canada, and the UK!
