Drag queens protest at State Capitol

A drag queen rally on Saturday at the Missouri Capitol protested a proposed ban of drag queen story hours at public libraries.

The protest included about 300 LGBT supporters and queens dressed in full drag with many holding signs like “Knowledge is power” and “Closed books equal closed minds”. Under Neosho State Representative Ben Baker’s bill, public libraries could lose state funding and librarians could be fined or jailed for displaying “age-inappropriate material” to kids. His legislation has not yet been assigned to a committee.
