Drag Queen Story Hour

August 5, 2023

Marz Community Brewing will host their second Drag Story Hour at the Iron Street Marz Taproom on Saturday, August 5th from 12:30pm to 1:30pm.

Drag Story Hour is diverse, accessible, and culturally inclusive family programming that allows kids to express their authentic selves and become bright lights of change in their communities. The medium has become increasingly popular in the United States as storytellers have used the art of drag to read books to kids in libraries, schools, and bookstores.

Unfortunately, so far in 2023, 435 anti-LGBTQ bills have been introduced across 44 states. Many of those attack the rights of transgender people, and especially transgender youth. Many others have also attacked drag performers and drag story hours, falsely claiming that this ancient theatrical art form is somehow harmful to children. Marz believes these legislators are targeting the transgender community, egregiously denying basic human dignity in addition to stripping away fundamental rights to privacy, freedom of expression, and speech. Marz proudly stands with our LGBTQ+ transgender and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) friends and is proud to present this new programming at our flagship location.
