Lori Lu brings Drag Queen Story Hour, in Spanish and in English, to FDR Four Freedoms State Park on Roosevelt Island. It’s a not to be missed event for Pride Month. For children for 3 to 18, but Mom and Dad can learn too.
Drag Queen Story Hour. Be there.
Lu sets up shop on Saturday June 26th and Sunday June 27th at 11:00 a.m., both days. Although the events are free, you need to register, and you do that, right here.
Drag Queen Story Hour is “a range of fun and fabulous educational experiences” for children and teens in libraries, schools, museums, and community spaces.
Through storytelling and creativity, DQSH teaches gender diversity and all forms of difference, building empathy. And it gives kids the confidence to express themselves however they feel comfortable.
So, sign up and join Lori Lu in a joyful Pride Month adventure in learning. It will sell out fast, so be sure to register, right here.
This free offering is from Four Freedoms Park Conservancy, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working on behalf of the people of New York, working in partnership with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
