During Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH), drag queens read stories to children! This glamorous and educational phenomenon was born in San Francisco and has spread to libraries and schools throughout the United States and around the world, including popular manifestations in Sweden and Japan. This fun and fabulous literary experience celebrates gender diversity, builds empathy, and teaches tolerance with every story told. Miz Jade and Brontez Purnell, author of The Nightlife of Jacuzzi Gaskett, will read from books, sing songs, and lead their young audience in arts and crafts explorations. Drag Queen Story Hour is designed for children aged three to eight, but all are welcome to join for a joyful celebration of diversity and creativity. A World Voices Festival Next Generation Now event.

This program is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
