About the Event
You are invited to join us for QTPOC StoryTime - 30-minutes of marvelous connection that nurtures evolved thought and builds healthier humans of all ages. "There are literally thousands of books featuring families that are white, straight, middle-class, and able-bodied. If you’re queer or a person of color, the options available to you in the children’s book aisle severely shrink, especially if you’re looking for a story that includes a representation of you or your family. If you’re both queer and a person of color, there literally may only be one or two books that even get close to telling the story of your family." "And, while it may be conventional wisdom that white kids won’t read books featuring people of color and that boys won’t read books featuring girls, there isn’t much research actually supporting it–meaning we may be able to turn the tide by introducing kids to a wider range of stories at a young age." Each tale shared in the Children's QTPOC Storytime is a lapping wave in this equitable current of diverse narratives that are allowing us all to see the beautiful diversity that is the truth of humanity while also ushering in a new, healthier version of ourselves. This is the new normal that we all need and healthfully deserve.
