“This is outrageous. If these men were dressed as Hindu women, Orthodox Jewish women, or Muslim women there would be an uproar,” Jewels Green wrote in disgust on the Boston Public Library’s Children’s Page. Green was reacting to the decision of the library to sponsor a Drag Queen Story Time late last month, which also mocked Catholicism. Its attack upon the Catholic religion, with the support of the taxpayer-funded library, has led to increasing public outrage as more Bostonians learn of the activity.
The event follows the example set by the Brooklyn Public Library in New York City, which recently sponsored a Drag Queen Story Hour for toddlers. One would think that would have led to shouts of indignation at such perversity; however, many adults in the audience expressed approval, saying it was “great.”
