Chicagoans of all ages gathered at Shapiro Ballroom, 1627 W. Chicago Ave., the morning of June 23 as performers Muffy Fishbasket and Sutton hosted Drag Queen Story Hour.

The event was presented in conjunction with the June 21 debut of The Bravest Knight on the Hulu streaming service. That animated program depicts a pumpkin farmer-turned-knight happily married to a prince. The program's first episode was also screened June 23.

Drag Queen Story Hour is a national program wherein drag performers host story readings at local libraries and other community venues. Chicago events are held monthly.

According to the DQSH website, the events "[capture] the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models."
