ROYAL STORIES: This concert will benefit the NYC chapter of Drag Queen Story Hour. Featuring the musical talents of: Rev. Yolanda, Candy Samples,and Ophelia Nightbird, with special story time by Ona Louise.

Funds raised at this event will allow us to bring DQSH to public schools that can't afford to pay for it, and to train drag queens for our pilot DQSH program for kids on the autism spectrum.

About Drag Queen Story Hour:

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH 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.

Created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco, DQSH now happens regularly in LA, New York, and San Francisco, and events are popping up in other cities across the US, Canada, and the UK!

If you live in one of these three cities, contact us to bring DQSH to your library, school, or bookstore!
