A local drag star has partnered with Raise Up Fundraising to bring Drag Storytime to St. John’s.
Doctor Androxbox is a local drag king who performs downtown with the “East Coast Drag Company.”
President Charles Murphy of Raise Up Fundraising says the event is to express yourself any way you feel.
Murphy says the event is to help normalize drag and take away the idea of gender stereotypes. Aside from the reading, Murphy says there will be activities for children.
There will be crafts afterwards, pictures with the performers, and a donation jar for parents of gender-diverse kids to raise money for their summer camp.)
The event takes place from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Chapters on Kenmount Road in St. John’s.
Chapters will have various LGBTQ-friendly, anti-bullying, and self-acceptance themed children’s books on display during the event.
