It began in places like New York, Los Angeles, and even came to Atlanta last year. Now, “Drag Queen Story Hour” is a phenomenon that could show up at your community’s library very soon.
The events- which feature confused men outfitted in makeup, dresses, and using their “drag” name reading stories to children at public libraries- have generated controversy in Lafayette, LA and Mobile, AL. Closer to home, however, a “Drag Queen Story Hour” came to Columbus, GA this month and plans are in the works to make it a monthly occurrence. Drag Queen Story Hour and events like it have already happened or are planned in at least 40 states.
It’s time to act.
There is nothing innocent about these events. Beyond the shock of a child seeing an adult male dressed as an over-the-top female, the story-times have a very specific agenda. The mission of the program is to:
“capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.”
Books read to the children are “LGBT books” according to one of the “queens” and books that teach them what a “drag queen is from a kid’s perspective” and how they too can express themselves that way.
But, it doesn’t stop there.
Columbus Gay Pride Director Jeremy Hobbs was overt about a desire to undermine parents: “We’re not born with hate; we learn hate. And it all starts at home.”
Yes, beyond introducing and pushing an LGBT lifestyle to innocent children, this program plans to teach kids that any biblical values they may glean from the home is “hate.”
First, we will be providing more information in the coming weeks on this unacceptable program, and we will be ready to act. To help fund our efforts to inform and engage local communities with a call to action, consider a contribution to help in our efforts.
Second, the most effective local tool is the church. Make sure your pastor is aware of this program AND encourage him to preach on the important topic of gender and the assault it is facing from the radical Left.
Third, remember to discuss this upcoming election with your network. One choice running for governor, Stacey Abrams, has been transparent about her intent for the government to supplant parents, to use the state to fully embrace the LGBT agenda, and indoctrinate Georgia children.
Our culture is facing issues that- even just 5 years ago- seemed unimaginable. The only way to push back is for the church, the Body of Christ, to be awake, alert, and active. We look forward to partnering with you to that end.
Standing with you,
President and Executive Director
