Yeeted from the Children's Room.
FIC’s press release is here.
Thanks to local families who expressed their deep concerns to local officials, it is apparent that the Drag Queen Story Hour is no longer taking place in the CHILDREN’S ROOM at Noah Webster Library in West Hartford, CT on June 25, 2022.
This is a victory for local parents who calmly and courteously contacted their neighbors and local officials and succeeded in canceling this event at the library.
To be sure, the event was quietly relocated by its sponsors to a local store. But thank goodness library officials had the wisdom to not use public resources and promote inappropriate and hyper-sexualized depictions of gender and women within the walls of their library.
