WHAT WOULD WE EXPECT WITH A CO-AUTHOR NAMED “L’IL MISS HOT-MESS?” The title of the paper in question? “Drag pedagogy: The playful practice of queer imagination in early childhood.”
From the paper:
Through this programme, drag artists have channelled their penchant for playfully “‘reading’ each other to filth”1 into different forms of literacy, promoting storytelling as integral to queer and trans communities, as well as positioning queer and trans cultural forms as valuable components of early childhood education. We are guided by the following question: what might Drag Queen Story Hour offer educators as a way of bringing queer ways of knowing and being into the education of young children?
“Queer ways of knowing and being” pretty much sums up the end-game.
