I never would have thought about it until now, but children and drag queens are a match made in an extra fabulous heaven. Both love glitter, make up, dressing up in extravagant attires, and other awesome things.

RADAR Productions, a San Francisco nonprofit that gives a voice to queer writers and artists, has recognized this perfect match for sometime and has joined up with the SF Public Library to bring drag queens and children together. The nonprofit will be hosting Honey Mahogany at the Eureka Valley Harvey Milk Memorial Library, March 12, noon to 2 p.m, in the heart of the Castro District. The group has done two similar events in the past, and both were a success.

Honey, from Season 5 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” will be reading stories to children, painting faces and passing out cookies … all while dressed fabulously in drag with full makeup.

 “I think generally queers are not mixed with kids—especially drag queens,” Delgado Lopera told SF Gate. “It’s really beautiful to have drag queens painting children’s faces and telling stories. It’s disrupting that idea that queers can’t mix with kids.” She also added, “It’s a kid’s world to be very imaginative. If children were allowed they would dress up every day. I don’t think they’re thinking about gender assumptions. They’re just seeing the drag queens as other people who are being imaginative.”

In the same interview, Delgado Lopera said, “The Castro is predominantly a white gay men’s space now. This project is about taking back the radically queer roots of the neighborhood. With art and literature, we’re doing a series of interventions and bringing in other queer folks into that space.”

I hope I speak for everyone when I say this event sounds amazing.

It’s become my mission to show the world that not only is kindness fun and easy to do, but also that small actions can have giant impacts. That’s why I started Kinda Kind. I’m glad that your path has led you here and I’m glad we’re on the journey together to make kindness badass.
