Attacks on Drag Queen Story Hour is homophobic hysteria with a side of fear

We all know that the claims about Drag Queen Story Hour being harmful to children is mere homophobic hysteria. And the two short videos above prove it. One looks at the event through the eyes of parents who attend with their children versus folks who protest. And the other video talks about conditions which are followed for people who want to participate in Reseda - i.e. audition and background checks.

There is a reason why none of the folks whining about harm to children - and especially right-wing media who exploit the event to scare people (particularly Fox News, The Federalist, The Blaze, etc) - will ever focus on this side of Drag Queen Story Hour. It's better to scare people with images rather than educate based on facts.
