Drag Queen Story Hour in Urbana this Sunday


URBANA — Drag Queen Story Hour is coming back to the Urbana Free Library this Sunday, Jan. 6.

From the Facebook event:

Drag Queen Story Hour returns! This fun and fabulous all-ages event features local drag performers reading children’s stories and doing crafts. Expect sparkles, glamorous dress-up, and a friendly atmosphere.

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) was developed by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions. Many libraries host DQSR events as a way of celebrating diversity, building empathy, and helping to curb bullying of LGBTQ kids.

This event is co-sponsored by the UP Center of Champaign County.

The story hour starts at 3 p.m. The Urbana Free Library is at 210 W. Green St. in Urbana.
