Join MOCA and Yuhua Hamasaki for an IN-PERSON Drag Story Hour for kids ages 3-8. Stories, songs, and crafts!
Drag Story Hour (DSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children. DSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In these spaces, 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.
Drag Story Hour NYC provides a range of fun and fabulous educational experiences for children and teens from 3 to 18 years old in libraries, schools, museums, and community spaces in all five boroughs of New York City. Through storytelling and creativity, DSH teaches children about gender diversity and all forms of difference to build empathy and give kids the confidence to express themselves however they feel comfortable.
