Drag Queen Storytime Offers Diversity and Inclusion in a Supportive Environment

HALTON HILLS, ON/ June 23, 2022 – The Halton Hills Public Library (HHPL) is excited to offer Drag Queen Storytime at the Georgetown Branch on July 9 from 10 – 11am in support of our 2SLGBTQ+ community, friends, and allies. Drag Queen Storytime, hosted by the fabulous Fay & Fluffy, takes traditional elements of a professional performance for children and adds an opportunity to promote inclusion and diversity in a safe and welcoming space. It is a chance to offer 2SLGBTQ+ positive family programming that helps to create understanding and appreciation of gender roles and diversity. Free tickets for the program are available at the John Elliott Theatre Box Office at the Georgetown Branch. In 2019, Fay and Fluffy visited the library in person and Drag Queen Storytime became the Library’s highest attended program of all time. HHPL is happy to invite, anyone of any age to dress up, have fun and celebrate once again. “We are so pleased to offer this fun and educational Storytime once again,” says Melanie Southern, Chief Librarian and CEO. “An inclusive community is a strong one, and Pride doesn’t end with Pride Month. This Storytime celebrates the love of reading, diversity, appreciation of others, and it’s also lots of fun.” Fay (JP) and Fluffy (Kaleb) have been doing drag story times since 2016. They are drag performers and experienced child educators who read inclusive and culturally diverse books, sing songs about kindness and acceptance, and provide a whole lot of laughs, in a supportive and positive environment. As Fay and Fluffy say, “Reading is fun-damental!” Everyone is encouraged to attend. This program helps support families with 2SLGBTQ+ children and parent(s), as well as gender variant children, their allies and supporters. Mark your calendars and join the Halton Hills Public Library for a fabulous, good time! Visit HHPL’s website calendar page to learn more.
