Drag Queen Mama G videotaped teaching schools kids how to twerk during school’s library story hour

A video has leaked showing a United Kingdom drag queen teaching children how to “twerk” and sexually-suggestive dance during the school’s library story hour.

Mama G is a cross-dressing man and drag artist who “has appeared at libraries, theatres, bookshops and cafes all over the UK,” according to the Petite Pantos theater company.

Devon Libraries promoted his Story Hour events in North Devon as “sharing tales that celebrate being who you are & loving who you want.”

The video is from the Drag Queen Story Hour events, showing Mama G explaining and demonstrating before an audience of children how to twerk.

“All you need to do is you just need to stand with your feet sort of shoulder-width apart like so…and then you crouch down in this sort of position, so you’re bump’s sticking out,” Mama G says, briefly looking back to ask someone off-camera if they’re “taking this all in.” And “then you just move your bum up and down like that. And that’s twerking.”

Numerous parents and other concerned citizens have spoken out against the performance, Devon Live reports.

“Wholly inappropriate for children,” one said, asking Devon Libraries “what on earth were you thinking.” Another asked, “On what planet do you think this sexualized womanface act is appropriate for young children?”

Libraries Unlimited, the charity that runs Devon Libraries, responded with a statement that didn’t address the specific objections, but insisted it was “committed to ensuring our libraries are welcoming, safe and inclusive places for all,” that it is taking its “responsibilities very seriously,” and had performed a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check on Mama G.

After the controversy broke out, Mama G changed his Twitter profile so only approved followers can see it, but not before critics saved screenshots – including one of a tweet in which Mama G appears to ask children to send him their email addresses.

“You could always do some Mama G inspired arts and crafts!” he says. “If you want one of my colouring sheets for a rainy day, DM me your email!” Suffolk Libraries UK later put out a statement that Mama G claims the message was intended only for parents.

Drag Queen Storytime events around the world have drawn controversy for both the sexual and gender-fluid themes they promote to children, as well as for the individuals they’ve put in close proximity to children, such as convicted sex offenders, radicals, pornographic skits.
