Drag Queen Story Hour at Beauty Bar

ABC Catalog

Beauty Bar and Spellbound Children's Bookshop are hosting a Drag Queen Story Hour at Beauty Bar on Sunday, January 13th 2019 3-4pm. Spellbound will have a pop up store at the salon and our friend, Euphoria will be reading several childrens books. Basically, it's a regular story time for kids with the added feature of a story time leader who is a drag queen, adding some fashion flair, to be sure, and also opening up a fun and welcoming avenue to think and talk about gender norms, gender fluidity, and the importance of everyone being allowed to be themselves, whatever that looks like.

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.

Beauty Bar is a locally owned beauty salon located in the River Ridge Market Place (same shopping center as Mr. K's Used Books) just off 240 Exit 8.

Sunday, January 13, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
