Protesters are gathering in downtown Ottawa today to voice their concerns with a ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ event being hosted by the National Arts Centre. The event is ‘all ages’ and will feature drag queens reading stories to young children.

Rebel News’ Lincoln Jay is on the scene covering the demonstrations. It appears that counter-protesters are also involved and demonstrating in support of the ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ event planned for today at the National Arts Centre.

Police are present at the demonstration and are separating the two groups of protesters.

As reported by True North, “On February 8, drag performers Cyril Cinder and China Doll will be reading to children while in drag. Local performer Cyril Cinder’s Instagram page features a variety of explicit and ‘x-rated’ content, including images of male prosthetic genitalia.”

The National Arts Centre was also recently criticized for their purported plan to host an event for an ‘all-black’ audience.
