  • A “Drag Queen Storytime” event in Hamilton, Ontario was met with protests from crowds chanting “leave the kids alone.” The Post Millennial reports:

“Critics argue that exposing children to adult men dressed as sexualized parodies of womanhood is inappropriate and does nothing to promote healthy acceptance of gender nonconformity.”
