An elementary school counselor in the Portland Public School district is hosting a drag show for students featuring BIPOC drag queens with activities centered around the “exploration of gender.”

The event, organized by counselor Madi Bourdon, will take place at Atkinson Elementary School on May 19th. It is set to include a drag show, drag queen story time, makeup and nail polish stations, as well as a self-defense demo presentation. For parents, there will be a “gender-affirming Q & A.”
