Once Upon A Queer

Pinas Safe Space (PSS) will hold a Drag Read Aloud session with children in Iligan City on June 15, as part of the month-long Iligan Pride 2024 activities.

“By featuring drag queens as storytellers this event seeks to contribute to this positive change by providing children with the opportunity to engage with stories that celebrate differences and encourage them to embrace their own unique identities,” said PSS in its Facebook post.

PSS is scouting for monetary and in-kind donations which will be used to provide snacks and school supplies to the participating kids.
