Don't Miss Drag Story Hour with Yuhua Hamasaki in Cantonese & English!
IN-PERSON for MOCAKIDS: Drag Story Hour with Yuhua
Hamasaki in Cantonese & English
We had so much fun at our IN-PERSON Drag Story Hour
with Yuhua Hamasaki, we’re doing it again! Join us at MOCA
IN-PERSON Saturday, April 2nd for stories, songs, and crafts for
kids ages 3-8.
Drag Story Hour (DSH) is just what it sounds like—drag
queens reading stories to children. DSH captures the imagination
and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids
glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In these
spaces, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender
restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they
wish, where dress up is real.
Drag Story Hour NYC provides a range of fun and
fabulous educational experiences for children and teens from 3 to
18 years old in libraries, schools, museums, and community spaces
in all five boroughs of New York City. Through storytelling and
creativity, DSH teaches children about gender diversity and all
forms of difference to build empathy and give kids the confidence
to express themselves however they feel comfortable. Learn more
This event is made possible by former NYC Council
Member Margaret Chin through the Cultural Immigrant Initiative.
Always 25-years-old, Yuhua Hamasaki is a fun and campy
queen from New York City! Yuhua’s drag character is her own
invention of her superhero that has given her courage, confidence,
and happiness. She especially loves to explore the city and be
creative during her spare time!
