According to book publisher Brave Books, a group of black-and-white-clad drag queens and activists protested actor-writer Kirk Cameron's family-oriented storytime event at the Fayetteville Public Library in Arkansas, Fox News reports.
The drag queens reportedly blocked the views of some families and children, causing distractions during the book reading and remarks from the stage.
Kirk Cameron, who has been touring public libraries across the country to promote messages of faith, family, and country at children's book readings, expressed his concern about the disruptions to Fox News Digital. Cameron rejected the drag queen story time, and instead focused on his own presentation.
"The small group of protesters, which included some grown men wearing silly makeup, dressed in skirts and heels, pretending to be women, listened to the reading of a kids’ book about God’s view of gender called, ‘Elephants Are Not Birds,'" he said.
"At the close of this sweet and funny story of a singing elephant named Kevin who was tricked by a vulture named ‘Culture’ into thinking he might be a bird, the reader then asked the 300 children, ‘Do you think elephants can be birds, even if they strap on silly wings and a beak?'"
"In unison, and with great laughter, all 300 children confessed with gusto, No!'"
"I felt sad for the men in skirts. As it is written, ‘You have taught the little children to praise you perfectly. May their example shame and silence your enemies’" (Psalm 8:2).
According to Brave Books, one of the event organizers, around 500 parents, grandparents, and children attended the event and showed enthusiasm for it.
However, the organization also reported the presence of protesters both inside and outside the library during the event.
Fayetteville Public Library says:
The so-called "hateful message" that the protesters took issue with was apparently a reference to the content of Cameron’s own children's book, "As You Grow."
Trent Talbot, the founder, and CEO of Brave Books, a Texas-based children's book publisher, expressed his concerns about the recent incident at a children's book reading in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
He called the left's behavior predatory. According to Talbot, a group of drag queens in demonic outfits attended the event and aimed to force their disturbing views on the innocent kids and parents present.
"They sheepishly try to gaslight us — calling us conspiracy theorists."
"On Friday in Fayetteville, a group of drag queens dressed in demonic outfits showed up to a children’s book reading filled with conservative parents and their children."
"All these drag queens wanted was to force disturbing views on these innocent kids."
