Is Drag Queen Story Hour A Cultural Crisis or Not? The Massive Restructuring of the Entire Moral Universe in America

The New York Times recently reported a story that began this way, “Once upon a time at a public library in San Francisco, a drag queen arrived at story time and read to the children she met there.” The story continues as written by Liam Stack, “The children, no strangers to playing make believe, had fun and soon the idea of drag queens hosting story time spread to New York.”

As Stack explains, “It was an unconventional idea both for the normally staid libraries and the drag queens, many of whom were more accustomed to hosting late night events than M.C.-ing daytime singalongs, but it quickly caught on.” Now, we’ve discussed before the development and emergence of drag queen story hour, and we’ve tried to put it in perspective, understanding in worldview analysis what it means for our society, the agenda behind it, the ideology and worldview behind it. We asked what’s really going on here, understanding that that question takes on a particular urgency when the intended audience in this public library is indeed young children.

The article in the New York times is presented as if there is a normal America where drag queen story hour makes sense and then there is that other America where there is some kind of cultural or moral backlash. The headline to the story made that clear, “Drag queen story time continues its reign at libraries despite backlash.”

Let’s just think about that for a moment.
