Paris Library to Hold ‘Queer for Kids’ Workshop


A library in Paris has will be holding a “Queer for Kids” workshop aimed at children from seven to 14 as part of a “Queer Week” project.

The far-left-origin “Queer Week” is to be held from March 15th through to the 23rd and was designed a decade ago by students from the prestigious Sciences Po to allow a “space for action and reflection on gender and sexuality,” Le Figaro reports.

According to the Queer for Kids Facebook page event, the workshop will consist of two separate parts. A “diversity bingo” will see 10- to 14-year-olds “read, discover, and share works and works introducing otherness to a young audience through playful and creative Bingo.”

The second half will see a “fairy play” directed at children from seven to ten years old.

The Queer for Kids workshop is not the only class set to take place during the week by organisers. Another entitled, “L’Antre fessue, or how to play with your ass and your friends when you are anti-capitalist,” is also on offer to participants — although this is not obviously directed at young children.

Another, “Incest: the cradle of dominations,” occurs during the same day as Queer for Kids and describes incest as “a primal tool for training in exploitation and domination in our patriarchal society.”

The organisers have also encouraged participants not to bring “dangerous, sharp and/or piercing objects (syringes, knives, nail guns, etc.),” but say they will provide “wipes” for other “activities” among those in attendance, such as participation in the “make your own porn” workshop.

The promotion of LGBT material to children is not limited to France. In Sweden, drag queens have participated in story-telling events in public libraries and books aimed at preschoolers have tackled the topic, as well.

The issue of LGBT promotion to children in the UK has seen pushback from not just conservatives but also from the Muslim community.

In Parkfield Community School, Birmingham, around 80 percent of the students were kept home from school by their Muslim parents in protest of LGBT lesson content, a controversy which has now developed to the point where LGBT lessons at the Muslim majority school have been cancelled.
