Family-friendly drag queen story time events across Canada continue to be subject to a dangerous wave of bigotry as protesters with ties to the 'Freedom Convoy' and hate groups use homophobic rhetoric to stoke fear about the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

Drag Queen Story Time events are often held at public libraries in collaboration with 2SLGBTQ+ organizations and involve drag queens reading stories to children about inclusivity.

In the last two weeks, far right organizers have attempted to shut down drag queen story time events in Winnipeg and Saskatoon, the latest in a string of protests and online opposition to other story time events across Canada.
