Children attending a “Stories Together With Drag Performers” event in Minnesota saw up a drag queen’s skirt as the drag queen sat spread legged in front of them.
A volunteer from the Child Protection League, a nonprofit organization that seeks to protect children from “exploitation, indoctrination, and violence,” attended one of the “Stories Together With Drag Performers” events on Oct. 17 at Ridgedale Hennepin County Library, the group’s president, Michele Lentz, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Lentz said the volunteer took photos as the drag queen, who identified as Sasha Sota during the story hour, sat spread-legged and children looked up the drag queen’s miniskirt. Sota did not respond to multiple requests for comment from the DCNF.
The Child Protection League posted the photos on Facebook, noting that the photos “have not been edited, blurred, or altered in any way.”
Lentz noted to the DCNF that Sota was wearing some type of garment under the miniskirt and that the grainy nature of the photo obscures this. The children were not staring directly at Sota’s genitalia.
“Debauchery and sexual grooming are going on at our local tax-payer funded, Hennepin county public libraries right now,” the Child Protection League said in a Facebook post. “This ‘performer’ from Oct. 17, is most likely only 18 or 19 years old, from his social media, it looks like he just graduated from high school. What kind of parents bring their children to watch an adult strip club entertainer read transgender books?”
“We found out that the Hennepin County library association had scheduled drag queen story hours in 18 different libraries within Hennepin County,” Lentz told the DCNF.
Lentz said that because CPL recognized this issue seriously affects children, the organization put out information educating the public on drag queen story hours and sent volunteers to the story hours..
Hennepin County has cancelled all upcoming drag queen story hours this year, Lentz told the DCNF, and county officials have called meetings to examine the matter.
“We’ll be doing what we can to notify the public of those meetings and to encourage people to voice their opinion,” he said. “We’ll continue to monitor the drag queen story hour across the state where we can.”
