Drag Queen Story Time

The Frederick Center and Frederick Pride presents... Drag Queen Story Time! We are thrilled to welcome our community back to Hood College for Drag Queen Story Time. Join us on Saturday, June 15th at 11:00am at Hood College's Beneficial-Hodson Library for a vibrant and inclusive event that combines the art of drag performance with the joy of storytelling to create a unique and entertaining experience for children and families. The event aims to promote diversity, acceptance, and inclusivity by breaking down stereotypes and encouraging a celebration of individuality. Drag queens, known for their glamorous and theatrical personas, captivate young audiences with their colorful costumes, elaborate makeup, and dynamic personalities. This event costs $5 per ticket, and all proceeds from this event directly benefit The Frederick Center's Youth Groups, which support the LGBTQ+ youth of Frederick County and beyond. Any attendee of this event certifies that they will abide by The Frederick Center's values of kindness, acceptance, and family-friendly behavior. Anti-LGBTQ+ rheoric will not be tolerated at this event.
