Texas – It’s an event being called the “Drag Queen Story Hour” – and they’re popping up at schools and public libraries all across America.
Many people are rightly concerned that these types of events could unwittingly allow sexual predators access to children. Another case in Texas that has surfaced this week seems to support this.
David Robinson, whose drag queen name is Miss Kitty Litter ATX (no comment) was invited to such an event on Oct. 7 at the Blackshear Fine Arts Academy. Apparently, the school district was aware that Robinson had a criminal record as a sex offender before they allowed him to speak to children in his cross-dressing alter ego.
According to a group called Texas Values, subsequent to an open records request, they discovered that Robinson had told school librarian Roger Grape that he might not be able to pass a background check to perform at the library, because “the guidelines for submission automatically disqualify me if the deferred adjudication for prostitution is considered a conviction…so I don’t know if [it’s] ethical to submit.”
Unbelievably, Robinson was still allowed to speak to children, and the Austin Intermediate School District even assured parents that he had been properly screened despite his history as a sex offender.
An email that was sent to parents said, “the reading event was scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. and all readers had been screened by Austin ISD.”
This past October, the district approved new sexual education standardsthat Texas Values called a “dream scenario for pedophiles” that gave children tips on how to perform anal sex and encouraged them to get abortions without parental consent. The standards were passed despite protests from some parents.
The part about anal sex in particular is disturbing. It tells children to ignore myths about the practice and that “if you get ready the right way, it doesn’t need to hurt and won’t cause health issues”, adding, “many people enjoy it.”
The curriculum, targeted to children in grades three through eight, will also teach kids that there are 50 genders, give instructions on how to apply condoms for sex acts, and offer tips on how to perform graphic sexual positions. You cannot make this stuff up.
Of course, Planned Parenthood is thrilled with the plan. It is such a “blessing” that our tax dollars go toward such an “upstanding” organization. When the curriculum passed, Planned Parenthood spoke out in glowing terms.
“On behalf of Planned Parenthood and our review of these lessons, they are LGBTQ inclusive and comprehensive and we support all your efforts in leadership tonight,” said the chief external affairs officer for Planned Parenthood in Texas, Sarah Wheat.
Back to Robinson, on August 8, a whistleblower group called MassResistance uncovered several social media posts by Richardson which alluded to homosexual and sado-masochistic acts. The group testified before the Austin City Council, along with a number of local citizens demanding that the “Drag Queen Story Hours” be stopped.
A gay city councilman, Jimmy Flannigan, accused MassResistance of lying and spreading “misinformation about my community” after the group publicized the background of two sex offenders who read at story hour events in Houston.

Last year, a 32-year-old man who had been convicted of sexually assaulting an 8-year-old boy in 2008, was allowed to participate in “Drag Queen Storytime” at the Heights Public Library in Houston. Tatiana Mala Nina, whose real name is Alberto Garza, was allowed to read to little boys and girls at the library. The library stated that Garza never had a background check before he was allowed to volunteer at the library.
Of course, some parents didn’t seem to mind that their children were being exposed to convicted perverts. One mother said at the time that she wanted to have her kids under 10 learn about people with confused sexualities.
“Excited to expose them to things they don’t get to see every day. I want it to become more normal and more accepted,” one mom said of the story times.
As if kids of that age do not have enough going on.
The assistant library manager, Alexandra Drake said at the time, “It is amazingly unique and that is something we strive for, for sure. At this particular branch but also at Houston Public Library we always want to promote diversity, understanding, inclusion and fun.”
Tell that to the 8-year-old that Garza sexually assaulted.
More recently, another sexual deviant, William Travis Dees, drag name Liza Lott, was participating in Drag Queen Story Hour events as part of a group called the “Space City Sisters.” Dees’ claim to fame? He is a child sex offender who brags about his time as a transgender prostitute. What parent in their right mind wouldn’t want their children around someone with a stellar background such as that?
According to MassResistance, Dees was convicted in 2004 of sex crimes against four young children (ages 4, 5,6 and 8) and was jailed. He is listed as a “high risk sex offender.” However, since Dees was 16 years old at the time of his conviction, it is not posted on government sites because it is considered “sealed.” It was however available from other sex-offender record sources.
What liberals believe is in the best interests of your children may not meld with yours. And the fact that, at least in the case of Austin and Houston, convicted pedophiles and sex offenders could participate in publicly sponsored events involving children is disturbing.
Moreover, officials dismissed concerns of parents and other groups, even after being notified of the background of some of these performers.
If this isn’t a cause for concern… we don’t know what is.
