“Drag Queen Story Hour” generates controversy in Southern Cities


“Drag Queen Story Hour” is an event that features man dressed as women to read stories to young children in a local library. The intention of the event is being lead by Drag queens who are going to read kids stories about homosexuality and transgenderism.

Drag Queen Story Hour reportedly has chapters across the country, including in San Francisco, California; Houston, Texas; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Cincinnati, Ohio; New Orleans, Louisiana; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Chicago, Illinois; Atlanta, Georgia; Portland, Oregon; Denver, Colorado; Middletown, Connecticut and Reading, Pennsylvania.

Residents in some Southern cities have manifested against this type of activity in their local library.

Fox 10 News reports residents packed a recent Mobile County Commission Meeting to express concern about the event.

A group called Common Sense Campaign Tea Party has organized a protest for the story hour scheduled for this Saturday 8th  in Mobile, Alabama.

Matt Morris, pastor of Woodridge Baptist Church, told the commission: “I am convinced that this event represents opening the door to many other abhorrent behavioral lifestyles, which threatens to undermine the moral fiber of this country.”

In other cities like LaFayette, Louisiana, nearly 800 people have signed a petition calling for the cancellation of a Drag Queen Story Hour scheduled to be held at the LaFayette Public Library in October. According to The Daily Advertiser, men from the Delta Lambda Phi fraternity will appear in drag and read books to children ages three through six.

Mayor Joel Robideaux has suggested in a statement that he is seeking how to cancel the event.
