Drag Queen Story Time for Toddlers

On Monday we alerted you about Washoe County Public Library advertising their new kid’s event “Drag Queen Story Time”.
Come to find out that this event is just a part of their plan to celebrate “Gay Pride” during July. The library states that this Drag Queen Story Time is for toddlers thru 6thgrade.
We thought this program would compliment the Northern Nevada Pride Parade,” reads the response we received from Jeff Scott, Library Director for Washoe County Library System.
“We hope that events like these will encourage inclusivity with everyone in our community.   There is a non-profit that provides a Frequently Asked Questions section on their website. I would encourage you to take a look for more information. “ https://www.dragqueenstoryhour.org/faq/
The library official who spoke to our staff enthusiastically mentioned how one of the readers, “Ginger Devine” was awarded the “honor” of being named “Drag Queen of the Year” in 2015 from Reno’s News & Review.
Would you let your toddler or grandchild be read to by Drag Queens?
Do you think it is appropriate for county tax dollars to be used on a “program” that exposes kids to such a provocative lifestyle?
This story time is to compliment the library participating in the Reno Gay Pride Parade with their Cart Drill Team.

Is this appropriate use of tax payer funds?
The Washoe County Library System is under the purview of the Washoe County Commissioners.  You need to contact the Commissioners and urge them to stop this Drag Queen Story Hour and the participation of the library in the Gay Pride Parade.
Please politely express your objection to these events.  Tell them it is inappropriate to use county tax dollars to promote controversial lifestyles that parents, families and tax-payers object to.
