Drag Queen Events Targeting Children Canceled at Licking and Delaware County Libraries
Statement from Citizens for Community Values President Aaron Baer
COLUMBUS – In the past 3 weeks, two drag queen events at Ohio public libraries for children have been canceled. The events, which were designed to teach children how to become drag queens, were canceled after community activists, pastors, and elected officials spoke out for common sense.
Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives, Larry Householder, led the way, sending a strong letter to the Licking County Public Library.
“When I was first informed our public libraries were being used to teach teenage boys how to become drag queens, I thought it was a joke,” Householder wrote. “But the joke is apparently on the taxpayers, who fund our libraries. This is a stunningly bizarre breach of the public trust. And it must stop.”
“Speaker Householder said what every Ohioan knows is true in their heart – drag queen training events have no place at our public libraries,” said Aaron Baer, President of Citizens for Community Values. “We need to let children be children, and not try to sexualize them. You don’t need to be a Bible-believing Christian to recognize that “Drag Queen Story Hours” are not something our taxpayer dollars should be promoting to kids.”
Since speaking out for our children, the attacks against Speaker Householder’s courageous stand have mounted. We need to support and thank him for standing up for our children and taxpayer dollars!
