Hearing and seeing “The Grapes of Wrath” read by a burly man in women’s panties just makes that Steinbeck classic SO MUCH BETTER! Can’t wait! (JK! This stuff makes me embarrassed to be a part of the gay community. Although, in fairness, I don’t consider myself a part of that attempt at mind control.)

While I’m not a huge fan of this program, Miss Barbie-Q is a genuine person, vetted activist and a great representative for the trans community.

Recently I spoke with an old timer gay who said something poignant about the evolution of drag. He compared drag and leather as two sides of the same spectrum- such as the pageantry, community service, and hyper sexuality. While there is a place for such cultural expression, should we be publicly funding leather daddy story time?

Hoping this comment doesn’t give the CC any ideas…

I do not support this program and would never expose my child to this type of adult entertainment. Not sure what type of parent would.

I tend to agree. if it’s about reading then it should be about the book as drag queen are all about focusing on them. so why have them tell a story that just takes you out of it. Bring back plain looking be -speckled librarians!
