Drag Queen Story Hour Morphs Into Full Summer Camp Experience

(TheRedWire.com) – Quite a number of universities and groups across the country are offering transgender inclusion activities for kids as young as two to eight years of age. On April 9, Fox News reported that Oklahoma State University hosted a Drag Queen Story Hour for young kids as part of its Pride 2022 month. Two drag performers read books to the children that promoted acceptance and inclusion of transgender people.

Oklahoma State University wasn’t alone in the festivities, and other groups announced plans ahead of the summer months. Seattle’s Pop Culture Museum announced it would host a summer week-long camp titled “Dragtastic Summer Camp: The Art of Drag.”

The museum will hold the five-day event in early August. Organizers invite kids from 12 to 18 to come and learn about the history of drag. In addition to investigating drag history, the $400 program’s participants will also work with local artists to create their own personas. The summer camp also states that kids can pick a drag name, learn how to put on makeup, style their hair, and develop a stage presence.

In a statement to Fox News, the Museum said they celebrate creativity with all community members. It said young people should have the opportunity to explore self-expression through drag.
