Drag queen story time coming to Baton Rouge
BATON ROUGE - Drag queen story time is coming to Baton Rouge next month.
The event is being planned through a partnership between Baton Rouge Pride and the Aveda Institute. Baton Rouge Pride says the event will consist of local drag queens reading books that teach acceptance, anti-bullying and inclusiveness.
People are invited to attend the reading on December 2 at Aveda's new campus on South Sherwood Forest Boulevard. Doors open at 2 p.m. and story time will begin at 2:30 p.m.
The family-friendly story time is free, however space is limited. Those wishing to attend are encouraged to come early or reserve a spot online.
A similar event that was set to take place at a Lafayette library earlier this year, but it was ultimately canceled due pushback from part of the community.
