Geni McCallum started this petition to Wendy Newman & co.

On the 20th August Erika & CoCo Flash's Rainbow Storytime NZ Tour is coming to the Timaru Library!

"Come with your kids to read books about acceptance, diversity, inclusion and being kind, play some fun games and meet some fabulous drag queens with plenty of colours and glitter!"

According to this article: https://www.stuff.co.nz/timaru-herald/news/122325328/petition-against-drag-queens-at-timaru-library someone named Wendy Newman has created a physical petition to try and cancel the event.

It says "Let our little ones enjoy the innocence of childhood without being sexualised by inappropriate adult entertainment which is divisive and not inclusive".

Clearly Wendy and co. don't understand that the purpose of this event is to make children feel accepted and seen for whomever they are. It's meant to be fun and playful, with a fantastic message of inclusive diversity - it has nothing to do with sexualising children or inviting them to participate in 'adult entertainment'. This is quite clearly not even a Drag Show. 

This petition is to show our support for these fantastic people who are bringing a wonderful message to smalltown New Zealand - where LGBT+ children and adults often feel unaccepted and marginalised by narrowminded, archaic and ignorant viewpoints/people. 

If you'd like to support even further, please think about donating to Erika & CoCo Flash so they can continue to reach more people throughout New Zealand. https://www.facebook.com/donate/1123089181410209/
