Drag Queen Story Hour at More Than Words

March 8, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us at More Than Words for a Drag Queen Story Hour on Sunday, March 8th!

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of 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.

Through storytelling and creativity, DQSH teaches children about gender diversity and all forms of difference to build empathy and give kids the confidence to express themselves however they feel comfortable. In the 45 min Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) program designed for children ages 3-8, local drag performers trained by children’s librarians read picture books that touch on themes of diversity and difference, sing songs, and do craft activities.

Ticketing: Tickets are available on a pay-what-you-can basis, and are not tax deductible donations. Ticket proceeds support More Than Words, empowering system involved youth through job training and mentor ship.
