While Christian conservatives have already started blaming LGBTQ people and the “sin” of marriage equality for the worldwide pandemic of coronavirus, one pundit linked to a recognized hate group went so far as to proclaim the virus “good” because drag queen story hour events can’t be held at public libraries while they’re closed.
Former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Nina West apparently didn’t get the memo, because she’s started holding virtual story hours for kids on Instagram Live.
West, who wrote the children’s book Drag Is Magic, held her first story time show this week. She chose RED: A Crayon Story to debut the series and followed it up with a short arts and crafts segment.
The story by Michael Hall is about “a crayon who suffers an identity crisis when he is labeled wrong.”
