A longtime conservative activist says nobody should be surprised a drag queen story hour showed up on a left-wing college campus.
Two drag queens read and danced before parents and their children at a Michigan State University dorm last month, The Morning Watch, a conservative news site, reported.
Linda Harvey of Mission America says it’s not surprising that liberal parents would subject their children to such an event on a college campus.
"The college community is full of academics who are all pretty much uniformly left wing,” she observes, “and so when they have children—grad students, professors, and so on—I'm sure they see nothing wrong with this."
OneNewsNow continues to report about the public library story hours in which men, dressed up as women with wigs and thick makeup, read and perform in front of young children who are instructed that attending demonstrates they are tolerant and accepting.
One of the U of M drag queens told the audience that drag is an “expressive art form” and compared it to court jesters and a Native American shaman.
According to The Morning Watch, the children’s book read aloud to children told the story of a young Kansas boy named Gilbert who “overcomes a gray and dull life” by reaching San Francisco where he can be his “colorful, sparkly, glittery self.”
Once in San Francisco, Gilbert replaces the city’s flag with a rainbow flag because the former flag reflected the “evil” community, the children were told.
During a question-and-answer session, one of the drag queens told the children that dressing in drag prevents suicide.
Harvey says the jump in drag queen story hours across the nation is indicative of what's happening in the LGBTQ trans movement.
"What it sure seems to me like,” she observes, “is that the gender-confused, drag queen transvestite group is becoming sort of the front public relations agents for the entire so-called LGBT movement."
The Morning Watch reported that few people were in attendance.
