Drag Storytime at your library?

drag queen performer reads stories to white presenting children in Orlando

We are prepping for our first Drag Queen Storytime as our outreach event at Pride in the Park (our city does Pride in fall--I don't know why!)

We've got our paid performer lined up, a time slot at the family friendly festival, and books selected.  A little Todd Parr, This Day in June, and a couple of other possibilities on the bench.  My hope is this becomes a regular collaborative effort between the library and The Center, our local LGBTQ group.

ALSC has a great little blog piece about the programs here if you're thinking of jumping on the bandwagon.

Has anyone done a Drag Queen storytime?  Please share your experience in the comments!
