Drag Queen Story Hour with Lady Keyante
August 18, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join the Rockland County Pride Center for a 45 minute story time and craft featuring Lady Keyante.
Designed for ages 3-8, this event is fun for the whole family. No registration required. Free and all are welcome.
What is Drag Queen Story Hour? Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like — drag queens reading stories to children. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids unabashedly queer role models. 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; where dress up is real.
The entrance is located on Jackson Ave., just past the fire escape (across the street from the Orangetown Police Substation).
We ask that attendees park in the Nyack Municipal Lot located off Cedar St. This lot is a two block walk from the new Pride Center building. Please leave time to park and arrive at the Pride Center on time. All parking meters are in effect from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm and 11:00 pm to 6:00 am Monday through Sunday. The cost for the meters is $0.75 per hour.
Because we want to be good neighbors, please do not park in or walk through the private lot directly across Franklin Street from the Pride Center. Instead, park in the Municipal Lot and follow Artopee Way past the bus stop. There is also a small lot on Jackson that is not open to public parking.
This event is on the ground floor of the new Pride Center building. The entrance door is level with the street, with two steps down into the room. These steps will be navigable by a temporary, metal wheelchair ramp. There is a single-occupant, gender neutral restroom on the ground floor. This restroom meets ADA space requirements and clearances, and there is a grab bar near the toilet.
If you need additional information about accessibility, please contact the Pride Center at (845) 353-6300 or by email at email@example.com.
