Drag Queen Story Hour is not just for public libraries! As part of a movement in higher education to fight discrimination and provide a safe space for LGBTQ students, university and college libraries are celebrating the gender-nonconforming experience through Drag Queen Story Hour. Providing inclusive programming establishes the library as a resource for LGBTQ students and educates the campus community about the importance of diverse representation. Three academic librarians and one performer will share their experiences planning and hosting Drag Queen Story Hour and discuss how these events can strengthen community relationships and contribute to an inclusive campus culture.
