For Najaraj, the event offered a chance to normalize drag and LGBTQ Pride, with the hope that her daughter would grow up to be an accepting, worldly woman.

Other parents snagged signed copies of books read by the performer to add to their home bookshelves, vowing that “we’re not going to be afraid.”.

“Things that are unknown are what’s scary to people,” said Julia Ramirez of Castro Valley, who attended the reading with her 4-year-old son.

As the owner of the Books on B bookstore in Hayward, Rettig has hosted several Drag Queen Story Hour events in the past. »
