Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH 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.
Join us for an extra special story hour with the stars and hosts of The T with Emoji & Nikki, Burlington's own talk show spotlighting the importance of the arts and activism. Emoji Nightmare and Nikki Champagne, two of Vermont's favorite drag queens, will be sure to delight and captivate audience members of all ages as they share stories focused on individuality, activism, gender, creativity, expression, and social responsibility.
DQSH was created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco. DQSH events occur regularly in SF, NY, and LA. For more information on DQSH, visit DragQueenStoryHour.org. To watch episodes of The T or to learn more about Emoji & Nikki, visit NightPagne.com.
