Drag Queen Story Time

Drag Queen Story Time is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children! KST is thrilled to present a virtual Drag Queen Story Time with Pittsburgh’s own twenty-one year drag veteran and pageant winner Akasha L. Van Cartier! Each story time, Akasha will be joined by current reigning Miss P-Town Leia Way LeStat to share two stories along with songs and dances to engage your child. Drag Queen Story Time captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.

Featured Books on Saturday November 7: 

I Am Jazz By Jessica Herthel, and Jazz Jennings, with illustrations by Shelagh McNicholas.

Bedtime Bonnet By Nancy Redd with illustrations by Nneka Myers.
