Mayor Adams Statement on Drag Storytelling

June 16, 2022

NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Eric Adams tonight released the following statement on the Drag Queen Story Hour NYC program:

“At a time when our LGBTQ+ communities are under increased attack across this country, we must use our education system to educate. The goal is not only for our children to be academically smart, but also emotionally intelligent. Drag storytellers, and the libraries and schools that support them, are advancing a love of diversity, personal expression, and literacy that is core to what our city embraces.”
