Evidence Shows Drag Influence Not Limited To Big-City Libraries

Conservative elected officials and activist organizations across the United States have taken action in recent years to protect young children from explicit material being presented in classrooms and promoted in school libraries.

While many cases involving objectionable books have occurred in large cities, one concerned citizen is sounding the alarm that even small-town leaders are pushing leftist ideology on kids.

Dr. Pat Daugherty, who previously served as the president of Conservatives of Northeast Georgia, recently penned an op-ed published in The Federalist that outlined what she discovered in the library that serves her generally conservative community.

A children’s summer reading program promoted by the county library included among its recommended reading a biography of drag performer RuPaul.

As Daugherty noted, RuPaul’s popular “Drag Race” television series “entailed grown men dressing up in women’s clothes and makeup mocking women with flamboyant stereotypes,” adding that the program “always had a sexual flair, and it was strictly adult entertainment.”

Of course, this example is relatively mild compared to the controversial uptick of drag performers taking an active role in programs designed specifically for children.

Many libraries across the country have hosted events known as “Drag Queen Story Hour” in which biological males dressed as females lead reading events for kids of various ages. Such programs have drawn widespread opposition and protests, leading some jurisdictions to impose ordinances preventing drag performers from engaging in activities with minors.

While these events — and some that are significantly more graphic — are commonly defended by LGBT activists as important lessons in inclusivity, even some drag performers acknowledge that such behavior is inappropriate for young audiences.

“Would you want a stripper or a porn star to influence your child?” asked a performer known by the stage name Kitty Demure in 2020, adding: “A drag queen performs in a nightclub for adults. There is a lot of filth that goes on. … I don’t think this is an avenue you would want your child to explore.”

Daugherty clearly agreed, noting that she is not interested in policing “what adults do in their own lives” but remains adamant that children should not be subjected to it.

“Common sense should convince anyone that drag is not for young minds,” she wrote.
