Source: Newsweek

“Agroup of Proud Boys members on Saturday aggressively disrupted a drag queen event being held for children and families at a public library, local sheriff deputies reported. The incident began around 1:30 p.m. at the San Lorenzo Library in Alameda County, California. Members of the notorious right-wing white nationalist organization stormed the event being hosted by the group, Drag Queen Story Hour, which organizes family-friendly readings hosted by drag queens all over the country. The members, some wearing shirts with AK-47s on them, yelled out numerous homophobic and transphobic slurs, and accused the event’s hosts of being ‘pedophiles.’ Alameda County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Ray Kelly confirmed the incident to a local reporter, Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez, explaining that the individuals were escorted out of the library by deputies.” (06/13/22)
