Sparkle Havdalah: a Drag Queen Story Hour

Jewish Community Alliance

1342 Congress Street
Portland, ME 04102
United States

Join PJ Library and our community partners along with local drag queen Miss LaJoy for Sparkle Havdalah! This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT!

Wear your sparkly best or just come as you are, as we say goodbye to Shabbat with a Potluck dinner (dairy/vegetarian, no meat please), a reading of the story "Sparkle Boy", crafts, music, havdalah and fun. This event is FREE, and all are welcome.

"Drag Queen Story Hour" captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, and where dress up is real. Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) was created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco, and now takes place in communities all over the world.
