Drag queens are being brought into nursery schools for storytelling sessions to teach children from the age of two about issues such as gender fluidity, homophobia, LGBTQ.
Bristol-based organisation Drag Queen Story Time (DQST) runs reading sessions with ‘queer role models’ for young children in schools, libraries and hospitals. Launched by Bristol University Law graduate Thomas Canham, the project aims to teach children about transgender issues through storytelling, in addition to misogyny, homophobia and racism.
However, this project has had a few members of the public feeling uncomfortable with such idea, as they respond with some firing tweets on Twitter. Here are some responses from people on Twitter about this issue.

#transgender C. of England has lost the plot & another chunk of their shrinking flock, by saying nursery children can choose their gender

Tbh with you, I am happy. If I ever have kids they shall be homeschooled. Furthermore, as things become worse, it gives me more hope that the lord will return soon
