AOC expresses support for Drag Story Hour

Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York reportedly shared a post on social media encouraging people to support an upcoming drag story hour.

Journalist Andy Ngo tweeted a screenshot of a post Office that he said lawmakers shared on Instagram. The post, on the Rolling Library account, included slides urging people to “defend NYC’s Drag Story Hour” and “help protect queer spaces and expressions threatened by the far right.” The post, which instructs people to wear a mask to the event, says: “Bring rainbow swag, unamplified noisemakers, musical instruments, joy and love!”

“A group of violent, vocal zealots who have repeatedly harassed and mugged these events in the city openly plan to disrupt the next Drag Story Hour on Thursday, December 29 at the Jackson Heights Library in Queens,” it said another slide of the post states.

“Queer community members and allies will be there to show the fascists that they are not welcome, but children and drag queens are,” it said. “Let’s show NYC’s unwavering support for Drag Story Hour and for queer and transgender people, and give children and their adults a safe, encouraging, and joyful welcome as they enter the library.”

The same display appears in a tweet posted on the United Against Racism and Fascism NYC Twitter account.

While many people find events where crossdressers read stories to children totally inappropriate, leftists have wholeheartedly embraced the concept.

“Drag Storytellers, and the libraries and schools they support, foster the love of diversity, personal expression, and literacy that is at the core of what encompasses our city,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) in a expression earlier this year.

“I had the honor of doing a drag queen story hour in New York in April,” said Democratic Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney of New York tweeted in June.

Ocasio-Cortez has previously told a group of drag queens they refer to as “patriots”.
