According to The Daily Mail, “thrilled primary school children” from Parsons Street Primary School in Bedminster, Bristol, were entertained by a drag queen on World Book Day. The school’s headmaster, Jamie Barry, reportedly invited the drag entertainer from Drag Queen Story Time in order to promote LGBTQ issues to their students aged from three to 11.
Drag Queen Story Time’s stated aim is to, “capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of children and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”
One mother was quoted as saying, “Lots of parents at the school are not happy about it but the headmaster says there’s no negotiation. He said if we don’t like it we should take our kids out of school on an unauthorised absence.”
