Concerned Citizens of Alaska started this petition to Mayor Ethan Berkowitz and

To: Mayor Ethan Berkowitz, Anchorage City Council, Mary Jo Torgeson, (Director, Z.J. Loussac Public Library)

As concerned citizens of Alaska, we are putting forth a petition to express our disapproval regarding the promotion of LGBT material targeting young children at the Z.J. Loussac Public Library and kindly request that you end the program.  The program in concern, Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH), specifically targets children between the ages of three to eight years old and seeks to promote, disseminate and normalize sexual LGBT ideology under the guise of inclusivity.  Specifically, such ideology seeks to encourage cross-dressing, homosexuality, transsexuality, and gender fluidity.  Children are encouraged to: explore their "preferred pronouns"; "get their sissy on"; believe that cross-dressing drag queens are "super heroes''; and are introduced to other pro-LGBT sexualized material.

Such a program serves as a subversive introduction to LGBT material and seeks to promote sexual ideologies which are unfit for the minds of young children.  These mature themes should not be introduced to children and these adult subjects have no place in a public library.  While all persons on this petition value the Constitutional importance of free speech, we also recognize that the promotion of such material is inappropriate for children.  Furthermore, as a public institution, we do not want our library to indoctrinate our children with a progressive political and sexual agenda.

In addition, the American College of Pediatricians warns: "Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse."
