A visit to a British LGBTQ+ Museum and Oscar Wilde's jail cell door
When I was planning my trip to London last month to speak on LGBT History, it was requested that I add a speaking stop at the Queer Britain museum, which focuses on British LGBTQ history and culture. I didn't know much about it, since it just opened last year. But as I learned more, my speaking there soon became one of the more interesting events that I was looking forward to.
The War on Drag Queens and Story Time
Facts: drag queen story time was invented in 2015 by a woman named Michelle Tea who felt that story time events at libraries were too heteronormative. Another reason was that we needed to get kids back to children's stories rather than new media and social media. Hence the idea to get kids back into libraries. That is a noble effort.
