OTTAWA – As part of Ottawa Capital Pride celebrations, OPL will be hosting a Drag Queen Family Storytime with Drag Queen China Doll & Drag King Master Cameron Eric Leon at the Main Branch (120 Metcalfe St.) on Saturday, August 26, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

This free event features stories, songs, and crafts selected to create a fun and family-friendly experience.

Everyone is invited to participate in creating an inclusive and interactive atmosphere, and participants are encouraged to come dressed in an outfit that celebrates who they are. Join the colourful crowd as we celebrate Capital Pride by reading, singing, and making crafts!
