Atlanta's Pro Sports Teams Back Play For Drag Queen Story Hour

Pro NBA and NFL teams are now getting involved in bringing the very odd Drag Queen Story to their cities.

The Atlanta Falcons and the Atlanta Hawks partnered with Atlanta’s LGBTQ Affairs office late last month to bring kids into the presence of Steven Igarashi-Ball, who performs as Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker.

“We want to thank our friends at the @ATLHawks, @AtlantaFalcons, @WholeFoods, @GABeverage and @atlantapride for partnering with us for Drag Queen Story Hour,” the LGBTQ Affairs office tweeted. “Thank you for your commitment to a welcoming, diverse and inclusive Atlanta.”

Drag Queen Story Hour events have continued to pop up across the country with many parents repulsed at the idea of a man in a dress gathering children together to read to them.

In response to any criticism, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms says it’s important to be “inclusive.”

“When you see what’s happening and how our domestic policies are under attack in this country, I think it’s more important than ever that the city of Atlanta very publicly show that we are a welcoming and diverse city,” she told Fox 5 Atlanta.

As Life Site News reports:

“Many of the kids who are brought to the DQSH events are children of gay and lesbian parents, who hope the exposure to other children of gays and lesbians will give their kids the impression that their family situation is normal.  

In addition to the Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Falcons, Whole Foods (owned by Amazon) and Georgia Beverage were cosponsors of the event.”

Now that pro sports teams are getting on this controversial bandwagon it makes one wonder if these events will receive even more undue backing than this.
