(INFORMATION LIBERATION) – After the masses successfully rose up against a Drag Queen Story Hour event being hosted in the county library system and got it canceled, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and Jeff Bezos’ Amazon-Whole Foods stepped up to hold their own event in City Hall.
From the Atlanta Journal Constitution, May 23, 2019, “Atlanta mayor to host snubbed drag queen’s story time at City Hall”:
A date has been set for when Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms will host a local drag queen to read to children at City Hall. This comes after the county library system pulled its support for an event that was held at an Alpharetta branch.
Story time will be June 29, as announced this week by the city’s office of LGBTQ affairs and Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker – the drag persona of 40-year-old Buford native Steven Igarashi-Ball.
“I can’t think of anything better to do to raise the next generation of young people,” Igarashi-Ball told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday.
