Drag Queen Story Hour and Scenes with Queens!

Drag Queen Story Hour and Scenes with Queens!

Join us for Drag Queen Story Hour and Scenes with Queens!

We will have a series of drag queen story hours this fall hosted by director of Drag Story Hour Los Angeles, Pickle Drag Queen.

Pickle will be joined by drag artist Joella Perry and Dolly Levi for readings of:

The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish by Lil Miss Hot Mess, Feminist Baby by Loryn Brantz, and It's Okay to Be Different by Todd Parr.

Followed by Scenes with Queens, a family friendly reading of selected scenes from the various films represented in our Stories of Cinema exhibition with members of the audience!

We encourage families to visit our Stories of Cinema exhibition. Stories of Cinema is the Academy Museum's core exhibition exploring narrative and documentary films, both animated and live action, as well as the arts and sciences of moviemaking. While celebratory, the exhibition also seeks to contextualize and challenge dominant narratives around cinema.

A separate museum admission ticket is required to visit the galleries. Children 17 and under are free.

Join us from 12:30pm to 2:30pm in the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level. The program is free with museum admission and available on a first-come, first-served basis.


Saturdays: September 23, October 21, and November 18

Story Hour and Scenes with Queens: 12:30–1:30pm
