I'm honestly curious about this sudden surge in drag events for children, whether it's story time in libraries or dress-up events.
Are drag queens the new clowns? Is it a quick and easy way for institutions like libraries to appear diverse and woke in a very visible way? Why drag queens specifically?
Is it an attempt at an intentionally challenging image, to present the most visible and garish image of "queerness" alongside children?
I'm not a fan of drag. I think it's misogynistic but I also don't really care what gay men do in their own spaces.
What are your thoughts?
