Drag Queen Story Time

December 12, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Registration required.

Drag Queen Story Time is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children! KST is thrilled to present a virtual Drag Queen Story Time with Pittsburgh’s own twenty-one year drag veteran and pageant winner Akasha L. Van Cartier! Each story time, Akasha will be joined by current reigning Miss P-Town Leia Way LeStat to share two stories along with songs and dances to engage your child. Drag Queen Story Time 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.


Featured Books on Saturday December 12: 

Nana Akua Goes to School By Tricia Elam Walker with illustrations by April Harrison.

Speak Up By Miranda Paul with illustrations by Ebony Glenn.

Each Drag Queen Story Time will also include excerpts from No Voice Too Small: Fourteen Young Americans Making History Edited By Lindsay H. MetcalfKeila V. Dawson, and Jeanette Bradley,with illustrations by Jeanette Bradley.
