A drag queen storyteller from Bristol based 'Drag Queen Story Time' will perform in the family area at the event to share stories of inclusivity and raise awareness of accepting difference. They will also give a short talk in our spoken word area. Their message of inclusivity, difference, celebration and fun connect with the aims of Into The Mix. Drag Queen Story Time aim to capture the imagination and fun of the gender fluidity of childhood, while giving children glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. By providing spaces in which kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions, Drag Queen Story Time allows children to imagine the world in which people can present as they wish. Where dress up is real and LGBTQ identities are celebrated.
