A vulgar group of drag queens is causing a fuss because their event at a Dublin library was canceled.
Last week, the group, “Glitter HOLE,” took to social media to express their outrage over the cancellation of a scheduled event in which the performers were to read books to children at a local library June 26th during LGBT “pride” week.
Originally the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown (DLR) libraries claimed that the event was canceled due to a conflict of age-appropriateness, “This event was programmed as an age appropriate, family-friendly story time session. However, following a review in terms of age appropriateness, this event will not now go ahead at this time, and may be rescheduled as part of a future Book Festival lineup.”
The cancellation announcement led to the drag queens to cry out about the “abuse” they are experiencing from protestors online and that the event was surely canceled out of concern for their safety. They claimed, “Over the weekend we have been inundated with extremely violent homophobia from a frighteningly large group of bigots who believe that a few drag queens reading books to children amounts to child abuse,” they continued, “The library decided that the event was a safety risk, which we accepted given the scale and gravity of the vitriol that was being spewed on Twitter.”
Of course, DLR responded and conformed to the demands of the drag queens and their narrative, “We wish to clarify that the cancellation was due to our significant concern at the high level of degrading, inappropriate comments on social media about the performers and library staff,” it said. “DLR Libraries remain safe, inclusive and welcoming places for all and offer a diverse, cultural programme.”
Now, we must take a look at the group in question: Glitter Hole.
Try explaining that name to a 6-year-old. Parents are also, of course, supposed to be comfortable with allowing a group that uses a drawing of a man’s buttocks to read stories to children at a library?
Now the group still isn’t satisfied. They believe DLR owes them an apology for their original statement on the cancellation.
We are so grateful to all of the people who have spoken out over the past two days against the way we've been treated. To update, we have still not received an apology from @DLR_Libraries regarding the matter and are not receiving any communication from them at all presently.

Glitter Hole plays the innocent victims and insists their adult shows have no bearing or influence on their ability to conduct “inoffensive” shows for children. It is just unfathomable to them that the very nature of their presentation is offensive.
We have long been reporting on the serious concerns that arise when you invite male performers, usually accustomed to performing in erotic dance clubs, to teach children about “tolerance.”
Tolerance to what, exactly?
The San Francisco-based Drag Queen Story Hour program describes its express purpose as capturing the “imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood” and giving children “unabashedly queer role models”; while Louisiana drag queen Dylan Pontiff admits the events are about “the grooming of the next generation.”
Truer words have never been spoken.
