Drag Queen Story Hour is back in New York City schools and libraries as though it never left— because it hasn’t. After angering parents who did not think their children had to be "read to" by men and women costumed as the opposite sex, the City of New York continued funding and expanding Drag Queen Story Hour programs.

Drag Queens, funded with taxpayer dollars, dress up and read to children in libraries, schools, parks, and green spaces all over town and in every borough. Drag Queen Story hour is funded by New York City Councilmembers, who can utilize their discretionary funding to pay for the drag queens and kings to come read to children and help them put on drag queen makeup.

Among those council members who fund this are Keith Powers, Jimmy Van Bramer, and Daniel Dromm.

Drag Story Hour NYC routinely shares photos of drag queens reading to students, whether in schools, libraries, or elsewhere. They shared photos of students at Queens middle school IS 93, where Bella Noche spoke to children.

The post announced that Noche was discussing the children’s book, Melissa, by Alex Gino, with the students. The book is about a boy who wants to be a girl, and so really is a girl. “When people look at George, they see a boy. But George knows she’s a girl,” the description reads.

Middle-schoolers assembled around to hear Bella Noche read to them while dressed as a woman.

When questioned regarding the continuation of the programming, Tony Kinnett answered, “The key question is always ‘why.’ Why does there need to be a special hour for men dressed sexually—to read for kids? Why are children given the responsibility of validating grown men in dresses?”

For Daniel Buck, the answer why is simple and sarcastic, “Because representation duh, you bigot. If young children don’t see men dressed as strippers, then they’ll grow up to be white nationalists.”

Certainly, many of these programs stress the courage and bravery of those who dress in these cross-sex costumes to read to children, as though there is something heroic about doing so.

“I am especially proud to support Drag Queens Story Hour, a wonderfully imaginative and inclusive program for kids that encourages acceptance and a love of reading,” Van Bramer announced when questioned about the use of funding. “Drag Queen Story Hour provides all kids with a space to be themselves and to see queer role models—something I desperately needed as a kid.”

James Linsday stated that “The story isn’t that they do it, it’s that you can’t get them to stop doing it.”
