Drag Queen Story Hour: Waking Windows

  • Misery Loves Co. 46 Main Street Winooski, VT, 05404 United States (map)

Emoji Nightmare and Nikki Champagne, two of Vermont's favorite drag queens, are back at Waking Windows - but this time they've traded the radio waves for the Kids Zone tent to bring two special sessions of Drag Queen Story Hour! The queens will be sure to delight and captivate audience members of all ages as they share stories focused on individuality, activism, gender, creativity, expression, and social responsibility.

The Kids Zone is located outside of Misery Loves Co. and the DQSH sessions will begin at 2pm and 4pm.

Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) is just what it sounds like—drag queens reading stories to children in libraries, schools, and bookstores. DQSH captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models. In spaces like this, kids are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions and imagine a world where people can present as they wish, where dress up is real.

DQSH was created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco. DQSH events occur regularly in SF, NY, and LA. For more information on DQSH, visit To watch episodes of The T or to learn more about Emoji & Nikki, visit
