Drag Queen 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—and now virtually! Through storytelling and creativity, DQSH 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.
DQSH events take place at libraries, schools, museums, festivals, parks, block parties, bookstores, play spaces, workplaces, and cultural and community institutions around the city. In 2019 we produced 185 events across all five boroughs and served approximately 4000 children. Most of our events take place in public libraries and are free to attend. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we are currently providing all our programs virtually.
