**Viewer Discretion Advised, unless you are a child attending a Drag Queen Story Hour**
Arizonans have been watching as Drag Queen Story hours pop up around the country, many times hosted by local city councils and libraries. Several times this year, drag queens have been highlighted at a few local bookstores in the Phoenix area–Changing Hands and Bookman’s. While most don’t approve of the material presented or the show itself, those bookstores are private property and the owners can run their businesses as they see fit.
On April 20, 2019, Bookman’s in Mesa hosted a drag queen event. It has not gone unnoticed this was the day before Easter. While children traditionally are dying Easter eggs and preparing for the following day’s festivities and family events, this adult entertainment group lured kids to watch obscenity. A few hours later, Mesa Community also held a drag queen event, this one tied to marijuana.
Just a few days after the most recent Bookman’s Drag Queen Story Hour on September 28th, Mesa Community College (MCC) had a drag queen event scheduled; which happens to be just a few miles from Bookman’s. It was soon discovered that MCC’s sister college, Scottsdale Community (SCC) also planned on hosting a drag queen event the same week.
According to some citizen watchdogs, Mesa Community College canceled their event, but Scottsdale carried on with theirs. A group of taxpayers showed up at the Scottsdale campus to protest and ask some questions. As it turns out, SCC did not charge the drag queens for use of the room. While that may be a nice gesture, the college would not let the protesters in the building. In other words, the taxpayer-funded building was open for drag queens but not for those who don’t want drag queen story hours on government property with their tax money. Here is what was advertised on Facebook:
The LGBTQ movement has stolen the rainbow and now they are stealing the lamb. This is not coincidental; Satan is at work on our children and our society. Here is an article to back this up.
Here are some screenshots of the drag queens who performed in Arizona in April. We are not sure if these are the same queens who performed at Scottsdale Community College this month because it wasn’t open for all to see, but this will be an overview of what material our kids are exposed to:
Here is “Haute Mess”:
Who are these parents who bring their innocent children to this mess?
On Twitter, Haute Mess discusses sexting.
This is what Maricopa Community Colleges have signed on to! So what to do? This Tuesday, October 22nd, there will be a Maricopa County Community Colleges Board meeting. This is when we need you to come and speak during public comment.
It is possible the Board members are not aware of all decisions made at their local colleges. Please use this as an opportunity to explain concerns to them and ask questions. The Board is not the bad guy in this; they are elected to represent the taxpayers so let’s give them a chance after they are made aware of the situation.
While we are on the subject, parents might be interested to know that Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, Kathy Hoffman, attended a drag queen event recently.
Will the drag queens’ next stop be our public school libraries?
