(This is no joke.) “The highly disturbing photo of a man dressed as a woman demon with huge horns on his head reading to little children at a public library was posted to Twitter and Facebook by the Long Beach Library.
Mochi is somewhat known throughout the LGBT community, and has his own Youtube channel, as well as Periscope channel through the Twitter platform.
However the post from the Michelle Obama Public Library was taken down after a giant outpouring of critical replies, including one from Republican Congressional candidate Omar Navarro.” More here.> Long Beach, California — The Michelle Obama Public Library hosted a satanic looking drag queen on Saturday who read books to young kids as part of the library’s celebration LGBTQ History Month.
This is their statement on their Facebook Page: “On Saturday, October 14, 2017, the Long Beach Public Library held a Drag Queen story time event to celebrate LGBTQ History month. The storytime was held in coordination with The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach, and advertised to the LGBTQ community, as well as anyone else who wanted to attend.
The storytime was very well attended, with 60-70 people in attendance. 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.
The Long Beach Public Library will continue to host events that celebrate the rich diversity of our City and all its residents.” Long Beach Public Library
