The world's largest-ever drag queen story hour is set for January 21, 2023, according to reporting by the Blaze. It is to take place in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the organizers hope to set the record with the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest gathering of this kind. The event will have drag queens reading stories to children, but it will also feature conversations about activism and political discussions. According to the Florida Standard, organizers insist that it is family-friendly. The event has been in the works since 2017, but only 200 people have confirmed that they will attend the event based on Facebook RSVPs. Also, only about 1,300 claim to be interested in attending the event.

The event is laced with political events and activism. The group intends to push liberal politics along the way. The group's Facebook page reads in part: [tweet_embed]December 17, 2022[/tweet_embed] "We'll kick the afternoon off with a short march to protest Florida's newest bigoted, oppressive and problematic policies. (Don't Say Gay, Stop Woke, the 15-week abortion ban, etc.) From there, we'll attempt to set the record for the World's Largest Drag Queen Story Time with Florida drag performers sharing stories and books with kids." Some of the event organizers are part of a group known as Wordier Than Thou, and they blur the lines between what literature is and what political activism is. The group is also proud of holding adult-themed or even sex-themed events. They have informed out that says that they are organizing the: "hosted literary pub crawls, written murder mystery games, hosted literary themed drag and burlesque shows." However, this is the same group setting up an event that is supposed to be welcoming to everyone and their children. That is highly concerning for several people. The organizers attempted to hold the event in 2021, but it was canceled because of COVID-19. The Blaze says the following about what the group posted about their event: "It was a casualty of COVID-19 and pushed to this placeholder date at the start of the pandemic. Then, we never moved forward with it because we're not ready to host something this large-scale yet. It will likely take place next year during Children's Book Week."
