Houston 'Drag Queen Storytime' Shuts Down After Participant Outed As Child Sex Offender

•, Chris Menahan

From The Houston Chronicle:

In an open letter published by Houstonia magazine, the organizers of Houston's Drag Queen Story Time said they are shuttering the controversial program after recent news that one of their readers had previously sexually assaulted an 8-year-old child.

The organizers, Trent Lira and Devin Will, penned the letter, claiming that anti-LGBT groups had been threatening library employees and participants in the story time.

Albert Garza, a 32-year-old registered sex offender, participated in the program under the name Tatiana Mala-Niña, according to the conservative anti-LGBTQ group, MassResistance. That happened before the Houston Public Library started performing background checks on readers.

Their long letter consists mainly of them whining about how they're the real victims in this situation and not the children their grooming.
