New York City taxpayers are giving roughly $200,000 annually to the nonprofit Drag Story Hour (DSH) which puts on shows for children of all ages, as young as three years old. National Review reports that that the New York City chapter receives the annual funds “appropriated by the New York City council and the New Yok Public Library.”

DSH holds events in over a whopping 200 locations across New York City alone, including many public schools and libraries. “The lessons feature men and women dressed as the opposite gender reading books, making crafts, and singing songs.”

Democratic lawmakers claim DSH NYC is an opportunity for children as young as three years old to engage with the “play of gender fluidity in childhood” and to learn about “love” in a “safe space.”

New York City mayor Eric Adams said of the organization, “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.”

Democratic New York representative Carolyn B. Maloney promoted DSH as an example of “well-rounded education” on Twitter. “Across the country, books are being banned, which are depriving our nation’s youth,” Maloney wrote. “But thanks to @NYPL and programs like Drag Queen story hour, NYC’s next generation are getting a well rounded education about LGBTQ+ issues and gender identity.”

One of the nonprofit’s biggest performers is of Oliver Herface, who also goes by Angel Izaguirre. Herface’s social-media accounts “are replete with nudity and other sexually explicit content” writes National Review. “A quick Google search, however, reveals that his public social-media accounts predominantly feature him striking sexual poses while performing in a thong with his breasts exposed.”

Naturally, the bio for Herface on the DSH website is nothing but subdued and sweet, calling him a “drag king” and a former “day care teacher” who has a “passion for working with children and education about what it means to be queer and trans.”

How much would you pay to give kindergarteners a “woke” education? Like it or not, California taxpayers do not have a choice and are directly paying for children to receive “anti-racist” and “anti-bias” training.

California’s Glassbrook Elementary School is paying an insane $20,000 for “woke kindergarten” consultants to lead the training.

The founder of Woke Kindergarten, Akiea “Ki” Gross, identifies as they/them according to Woke Kindergarten’s website, and is described as “an abolitionist early educator, cultural organizer and creator currently innovating ways to resist, heal, liberate and create with their pedagogy, Woke Kindergarten.”

According to the proposal, Woke Kindergarten partnered with Glassbrook Elementary during the 2021-2022 school year “to facilitate four workshops and support staff in creating and implementing healing-centered, early childhood & elementary tools and frameworks to support teachers in supporting children’s holistic needs in the classroom.”

The website boasts “woke wonderings,” about the consequences of abolishing money, defunding the police and the military, eradicating borders, and challenging the legitimacy of the Supreme Court.

Fox News reports:

Woke Kindergarten’s homepage calls the organization a “global, abolitionist early childhood ecosystem,” and says it is “supporting children, families, educators and organizations in their commitment to abolitionist early education and pro-black and queer and trans liberation.” 

According to the contractor agreement, Woke Kindergarten was hired for “thematic unit planning and coaching,” and the financial impact statement describes the purpose of the training is to “continue … anti-racist, anti-bias training and connect to building thematic units along with coaching.”

The scope of the contract also includes using Woke Kindergarten’s resources to “disrupt whiteness, white dominant/settler colonial narratives and anti-Blackness in the Glassbrook [Elementary School] community.”
