Drag Queen Story Hour

Conecta Miami Arts in collaboration with CCEMiami presents a special bilingual Drag Queen Story Hour to celebrate diversity and tolerance as part of LGTBQ Pride Month

Featuring Leonardo Van Schermbeek doing storytelling in Spanish and the fabulous Missy Meyakie Lepaigne doing a reading of “The Bravest Knight Who Ever Lived,” followed by a special screening of Hulu’s animated series of Daniel Errico’s beloved book.

Drag Queen Story Hour started in San Francisco in 2015 successfully presenting events across the countries in cities like New York and Tampa, in these past years. It has become a regularly event within the public libraries of those cities.

Lyn Davidson, who manages the main San Francisco children’s library, said that the library “is about giving everybody equal access to books, to stories, to ideas. It’s about opening our doors so that every single member of our community is included. Our drag queen community has something special to share too”. The Guardian

“We want to teach the kids acceptance, not bullying, learning to make good choices, how to be nice to other people¨ The New York Times

The main key that we try to teach the children is acceptance. NBC News
