Heroic DC library staff trolls all-star conservative story hour with LGBTQ display.
God bless the staff of Washington DC’s Cleveland Park Library who welcomed yesterday’s all-star story hour roster of Very Online Conservative Snowflakes—Jack Posobiec, Kirk Cameron, Sean Spicer, and a woman named Libs of TikTok—with a prominent display of queer reading material.
According to multiple accounts on Twitter, library staff set up the display—which included LGBTQ-themed books banned in red states across America—the day before the scheduled event, which featured the aforementioned for-profit ideologues talking about freedom and reading their terrifying kids’ books to a captive audience of trapped children (and one sullen teen, apparently).
The best account of the event is a live Twitter thread by Amanda Moore, who went where most of us are loathe to go (Moore has a Substack, here).
Good morning from the Cleveland Park Library in DC, where Posobiec, Libs of TikTok, Kirk Cameron, and Sean Spicer will be doing a children’s story hour in about 15 minutes. pic.twitter.com/2sl0CDO6fq

If it weren’t for the vile and dangerous rhetoric these deeply un-Christian bigots spew about the queer community, their sheer clownishness and pathetic insecurity would be almost comic. Almost!
