Drag Queen Story Time is just what it sounds like - drag queens reading stories to children. Story time has never been this fabulous.
SHOUT is really excited to bring the international phenomenon Drag Queen Story Hour to Birmingham as part of the city's biggest Arts Festival, Birmingham Weekender, not once - but TWICE.
Aimed at capturing the imagination and playfulness of self-expression, giving children role models who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagining a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real. Join Ginny Lemon and Yshee Black for a family friendly afternoon of storys, song, dress-up, and joy.
