Deep in the heart of Cajun country, a public library advertises an LGBT group’s "outreach event:" Drag Queen Story Time. Click here to view a video describing a similar New Orleans event held recently.
The promotion continues: “Join us for an afternoon of books, songs, and activities led by Drag Queens from UL Lafayette's Delta Lambda Phi chapter. Recommended for Ages 3 – 6 and their families.”
This is a clear attempt to advance a hyper-sexual political agenda based on what the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) for psychological illness calls a disorder. If the library declines to host the drag show, proponents would likely cry 'discrimination' and suddenly a shallow threat for potential litigation exists. The LGBT fraternity is putting the public library in an awkward spot. Still, the choice between allowing LGBT forces to advocate a diagnostic disorder to children or upholding Louisiana’s values should be an easy one. Cajuns are an easy going, kind, and friendly people until the values of their families are challenged. Then you can expect the lines to be drawn!
Library Director Teresa Elberson told KPEL that the group volunteered and worked with the Children's librarians to pick a day to volunteer to read for the event. She says while the men will be dressed in drag, they will not be dressed to make a statement and that the decision was made to allow them to volunteer, as the library is a place "to provide an open, friendly environment to talk about it."
Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux wants the public library to cancel “Drag Queen Story Time." LFF encourages you to contact Robideaux at 337-291-8300 or firstname.lastname@example.org and thank him for his stand against dragging children into a sexually charged debate.
