The event to learn the drag queen creates a safe environment for young people

The organizers say they want to continue to create a safe space for LGBTQIA+ kids in Northeast Arkansas.

Envision Productions plans to do Drag Queen Story Time every other month, along with several other entertainment events including drag pageantry.

“We’re part of this community and we pay taxes here, whether you like it or not, we’re here. If you choose to not love us, if you choose to not like us, that’s on you, but we’re going to love each other. We have each other’s back,” Morrow said.

Morrow says they will continue to have events like this because they do matter.

Story Highlights

  • The reading event was created by Envision Productions Co. Inc and LGBTQIA+ friendly books were read. Several children and their families enjoyed listening to books read by Queen Makeena, Miss Delta Diamond Comedy Queen, Miami Rose and others.

  • “We don’t want them to be afraid to come out. We have a real problem with suicide attempts with queer kids and this is just going to help make them feel loved and supported,” COO, Kayla Morrow said.
