CORNWALL, Ontario – The second annual Drag Queen Story Time took place at Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School (CCVS) on Sunday, Jan. 27.
The event was organized by Diversity Cornwall and more than 80 people responded that they interested in the event on Facebook.
Parents were invited to bring their kids for some treats, a photo booth, drag queen performances and of course, stories.
There were two Drag Queens and one Drag King at the event, Lulu Belle, Misty Mac and the Drag King Treasure Trail.
Stories that the Drag Queens and Drag King read related to LGBTQ themes, such as 10,000 Dresses the story of a boy who enjoyes wearing dresses.
Liz Quenville of Diversity Cornwall said that the event was about promoting inclusivity.
“I think that we want people to know that Cornwall is an inclusive community,” she said.
Drag Queen Lulu Belle said that he wanted the kids to know that some men like to wear dresses, and that’s okay.
“I want the kids to have a nice time,” she said. “I want them to know we’re free to do things like this. Some men like to wear dresses. You don’t have to be complicated.”
