We wish to congratulate the City of Perth for its support of the LGBTIQA+ community during Pride Month and in particular for 'Drag Queen Storytime'. Children adore stories, dress-ups and fabulous performances - which this event provides in spades.
The City of Perth's future will be bright as long as it continues to embrace diversity, equality and acceptance.
Why is this important?
A certain conservative Senator decided recently to write to the City of Perth to ask them to cancel Drag Queen Storytime, describing it as "age-inappropriate, gender-based activism".
It's important that the City of Perth Commissioners understand that his views are those of a conservative minority not reflective of the people of Perth. The Senator wants to pander to his base by using a fun and harmless LGBTIQA+ event to drive division and bigotry in the community. We can't let him succeed in shutting it down.
