Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.7

Since 2018, the group — previously known as Drag Queen Story Hour NYC, has received a total of $207,000 in taxpayer cash from city contracts for appearances at public schools, street festivals, and libraries. Since January, the group has organized 49 drag programs in 34 public elementary, middle, and high schools, it boasted on its website. Dr. Elana Fishbein, founder and president of the conservative group No Left Turn in Education said, “Exposing children to drag queens in school is none other than an abuse of authority for the purpose of sexualizing children.”
