Protesters disrupted a “Drag Queen Story Hour” occasion at a California bookstore Wednesday night time.
Simply as in similar incidents that have happened in the Bay Area and throughout the nation this yr, individuals had been referred to as homophobic and transphobic slurs.
The viewers later cheered as protesters had been pressured to depart the occasion hosted by drag performer Tori Tia on the Books Inc. retailer in Campbell, simply south of San Francisco. Individuals who attended the occasion instructed NBC Bay Space the protesters confirmed up with indicators, and at one level, just a few of them pretended to be part of the viewers.
“He was saying like some actually transphobic stuff,” Tori Tia mentioned of one of many protesters, including that he instructed her she “shouldn’t be let across the kids.”
