A West Virginia public library has cancelled their showing of drag queen story hour following a massive grassroots push back against the perverse engagement.

The Morgantown Public Library System issued a Facebook post announcing that the event would be cancelled, alleging that violent threats were the reasoning behind the decision.

“The Morgantown Public Library System (MPLS) regrets to announce that, due to multiple threats of violence against the volunteer readers, Drag Queen Story Time scheduled for November 16 is cancelled,” they wrote.

“MPLS remains committed to fostering a love of reading for all ages and interests and to serving a diverse community. The Library will replace the cancelled event with a story time conducted by Library Staff. Families who planned to attend the 10 AM, November 16th story time will still be able to enjoy a family-friendly event that celebrates our love of books,” they added.

The LGBT community of West Virginia is not taking this news lying down. They staged a protest in favor of the drag queen event outside of the library on Saturday, showing that they will continue to push their agenda no matter how angry it makes the community at large.

“We need to be extra clear about how welcoming this community is to offset the national press on how we’re not. We are welcoming. Together, we will continue to make a difference for the better,” the West Virginia LGBTQ Center wrote about their protest that they claim drew 60 people.

“This rally was also a wonderful statement of just how many organizations and even elected officials thought this was an important issue,” they added.
