Queens councilmember goes on bigoted rant against drag story hour


Queens Councilmember Vickie Paladino unleashed a barrage of bigoted tweets on June 13 in response to an insensitive New York Post article about funding for drag story hour in New York City.

“Any school in my district participating in ‘drag queen’ degeneracy risks losing their funding,” Paladino said in the first tweet of an unhinged, five-tweet thread. “Adult drag performers have NO BUSINESS in our schools, and they will not be in my district. Period.”
