It is absurd that parents would take their children to an event known as "Drag Queen Storytime." It is even more absurd that a library would allow a convicted pedophile to participate in the program, reading to children.
Earlier this year, parents uncovered that Alberto Garza was posing as a drag queen to read to children, although he's a convicted pedophile who is considered "at risk of repeating his offense."
KHOU reports that a group called MassResistance, made up of pro-family activists, broke the story. “A media spokesperson for the library confirmed one of the program’s drag queens, Tatiana Mala Niña (Tatiana “Bad Girl”), is Alberto Garza, a 32-year-old child sex offender. In 2008, he was convicted of assaulting an 8-year-old boy,” the report read.
“In our review of our process and of this participant, we discovered that we failed to complete a background check as required by our own guidelines,” library official said, “We deeply regret this oversight and the concern this may cause our customers.”
“We assure you that this participant will not be involved in any future … programs,” adding that they “are taking the appropriate action to ensure that the status of every participant in every program throughout our system is verified.”
Mass Resistance claims it had been asking the City of Houston for months to disclose information about the drag queens, and when requests went unanswered, they did their own digging and made the shocking link.
“Most parents would not allow that individual to sit in this library and be held up as a role model to our children. Shame on you, Mayor (Sylvester) Turner!” said Tracy Shannon with Mass Resistance.
In a statement, the Houston Public Library admits they didn’t do a background check on Garza and said Garza will not be involved in any future library programs.
So they allow grown men to dress up like women to come read to children and do not even do a background check on them? This is what is wrong with our society.
