Parents are outraged after a drag queen dressed as a “Killer Klown from Outer Space” recently read to children at the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library for “LGBTQ History Month.”
“I got to read to the children today and it was one of the best experiences I’ve been given as a drag queen,” wrote the entity who goes by the name Xochi Mochi following the event on Oct. 14. “It’s so important to have representation and normalize all the letters in LGBTQIA+ in everyday lives.”
Mochi, who also calls himself “dragula,” “super monster,” “sextraterrestrial” and “gaylien,” wore five long horns that protruded out of the top of his head, with white facial paint accented by dark makeup. Some believed the costume looked demonic.
California congressional candidate Omar Navarro tweeted “Demonic teachings alive in Long Beach. I’m outraged they would allow this.”
There are many photos on on Mochi’s Instagram shows him wearing various costumes of varying demonic and evil personas.
“I love my #SisterWife #LesbianLover #BestFriend and #SuperMonster @frankie_doom #MonsterCrushEveryDay,” Mochi wrote, also simply posting the word “Hell” as the main caption.
In another photo, Mochi is dressed in a red and black skirt and top, with a caption noting that he was dressing up for a “Demon Lolita” party.
“Of course I had to be momma Satan!” he exclaimed.
Saturday’s event was reportedly the first time that the Michelle Obama library had hosted a drag queen story hour.
Other such drag queen readings have been happening all over the country.
However, some found the Killer Klown persona to be especially disturbing and inappropriate for young children.
After the Long Beach Public Library system posted to social media a photo of Mochi reading to youth, a number of followers expressed outrage.
Library staff then removed the post, asserting that some of the comments were “hateful” and “harmful” to homosexuals and transgenders.
“The storytime was very well attended, with 60-70 people in attendance,” staff wrote. “Unfortunately, the social media post the City of Long Beach Public Library shared to celebrate LBGTQ History Month received several hateful and harmful comments to the LGBTQ community, mostly from those outside of Long Beach, and ultimately the City decided to remove the post as it was no longer a productive conversation.”
