What is Drag Queen Story Time?
«Drag Queen Story Time» is a playful new program for children, ages 3 – 8, run by activist/educator Brandy Butler and Drag Queen/Performance Artist Tropikahl.
The event centers creating an experience that spans across generations, personal identities, migrational backgrounds and bring together all of these worlds in a creative, playful, almost hour long experience, facilitated by the joy of reading – and of course Drag Queens!
The program aims to capture the imagination of young children and play off the gender fluidity of childhood. It gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models, while also lightheartedly addressing relevant social topics such as diversity, self-identity, gender and much more.
In the world of «Drag Queen Story Time», children are encouraged to imagine a world where people can present as they wish, and where dress up is real and the possibilities are endless.
"Drag queen story time! The kids had a great time dressing up and listening to the story, singing songs and walking the “catwalk.” The concept of living your best life is good for everyone! "

"Drag Queen Story time was the perfect Sunday morning for my family. Not only were Brandy and Tropical kind, captivating and funny, they entertained the parents as much as the kids. I feel so grateful for someone to cultivate an experience that I've only seen New York right here in Switzerland. Sharing this musical and inclusive experience with my daughter was such a gift! Cannot wait for the next one!"
