LGBTQ rights activists have scheduled a Holi-drag Storytime, a faction of Drag Queen Story Hour, geared towards small children as young as two years old for next weekend in Central Ohio.
The event is scheduled to be held at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus on December 3rd and is being marketed as an annual LGBTQ+ holiday tradition for the entire family.
Red Oak Community School, an elementary school located in the Columbus area, will sponsor a story time for children, which will be hosted by two “drag queens.”
The event, which will take place on December 4, has been promoted to include children of all ages.
“Are you ready for a new family-friendly, LGBTQ+ holiday tradition? Come out to our outdoor Holi-drag Storytime! Local queens Mikayla Denise and reigning Miss District West- Bianca Debonair will read stories for children of ALL ages. Each ticket will come with a voucher for a free hot chocolate or hot apple cider and a candy cane!” the website to purchase tickets states.

Police arrested 38-year-old Brett Blomme Tuesday and held him overnight in Dane County Jail, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He was charged Wednesday with seven counts of possession of child pornography showing abuse of young boys, the publication reported, noting that each count carries a minimum of three years in prison and a maximum sentence of 15, plus 10 years of supervised release.
