The Newham London Borough Council announced Wednesday they're putting on the first of many Drag Queen Story Times for "under 5s and their parents and carers" at public libraries in Newham throughout the month.

"The first of our Drag Queen Story Times for under 5s & their parents & carers at @NewhamLibraries this #LGBTHM20 is on Friday," the Newham Council said. "Come & listen to fabulous stories, beautifully told."

"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," the Newham Council announced on their website. "Where dress up is real."

Similar events are being held throughout the country:

On the council's website, they share an original magazine which features a story about the Holocaust alongside a story about Drag Queen Story Time.

The council's decision to host this event was widely criticized on social media:

According to the moral code of our ruling oligarchs, targeting children with Drag Queen Story Time is the highest virtue whereas reading to children what the Bible says about homosexuality is a "hate crime."
