Audio: Drag queen rally planned to protest Missouri bill against drag queen story hour

Drag Queen Story Hour Final

A drag queen rally is being organized to protest a bill against drag queen story hours at Missouri libraries. Under State Representative Ben Baker’s bill, public libraries could lose state funding and librarians could be fined or jailed for displaying age-inappropriate material. Tanner Rambo (like the movie) says drag queen storytime would not involve adult-only content like drag queen shows do.

 

 

Neosho State Representative Ben Baker wants restrictions on content offered at Missouri’s libraries because he has a problem with drag queen story hours being held at them. St. Joseph and St. Louis Public Libraries have both held them. Tanner Rambo (like the movie), who’s helping to plan a rally to protest the bill, says drag queen story hours are not the same as drag queen shows.

 

 

Under Baker’s bill, public libraries could lose state funding and librarians could be fined or jailed for displaying age-inappropriate material. A drag queen rally is planned for March 7 at the Missouri Capitol.
