Drag Story Hour is a program of Blackfriars Theatre and takes place at the theatre.

Blackfriars Theatre launches a new 6-event series for Rochester families who like a little extra sparkle with their story time – Drag Story Hour with Mrs. Kasha Davis. This free program features inclusive children’s stories read by RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Mrs. Kasha Davis. Books will focus on themes of acceptance, love, identity and diversity. Each event will include a story, a dance party and a craft activity. Drag Story Hour teaches love and acceptance, gives strength to kids who see themselves differently, and serves as a resource for parents who need support or want to learn more. The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley has partnered with Blackfriars on this project and will have representatives at each story hour to help answer tough questions and to act as a community resource for families who might benefit from their programming and expertise. 

Drag Story Hour is presented in partnership with The Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley with additional support from Get Caked and Quentin Roach.

“Children need adults to provide them with the opportunity to express their true and authentic selves and I believe we need children to remind us that no matter how complicated adults make this world, we are all seeking one common goal: TO BE LOVED.” - Mrs. Kasha Davis.
