Service Members, Parents And Lawmaker Put A Stop To ‘Drag Queen Story Hour’ On Base

Ramstein Air Base

A ‘drag queen story hour’ event at Ramstein Air Base has been cancelled after backlash from service members, parents, and Florida lawmaker Marco Rubio. The event, intended for young children, allegedly began advertising before approval from the base had been secured.

“An advertisement was posted to the base library social media page before the event had completed Ramstein’s established processes for special observance coordination and approval,… The advertisement has been removed and the event will not take place.”

Lt. Col. Will Powell, 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Florida Senator Marco Rubio acted immediately on hearing of the event and wrote a strongly worded letter to U.S. Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall asking that the event be stopped:

“I urge you to immediately cancel this politically divisive event, and take appropriate disciplinary action against all involved in allowing this gross abuse of taxpayer funding to place children in a sexualized environment”

Senator Mark Rubio

Rubio went on to state that families serving overseas have a hard enough time as it is accessing amenities such as public libraries. These parents should not have to worry about their kids being exposed to sexually charged content when visiting the only library available to them.

Rubio further requested information on how often the U.S. Military has hosted such events using taxpayer dollars. He has not yet made public whether or not U.S. Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall responded to these questions.
