'Drag 101' Cancelled at Library! Ohio Families Said NO
Statement from Mission America
The “Drag 101” event for teens at the Delaware (OH) County Library will not take place, at least not at the library, according to an announcement from the library director.

It’s been moved to a local comic book store where concerned citizens hope it will not be well-attended by children, and that any minors who attend will be accompanied by adults. That was not the original goal of the “teens only” event at the Orange branch of the Delaware Library. Only after public outcry did the library director announce that one adult would be allowed to accompany a minor to the event.
The library director is citing safety concerns and alleged threats, a claim that is highly doubtful and would never be encouraged or supported by any conservative Ohio group, including ours.
The positive outcome is that this depravity—a male who poses as a female “drag queen” to instruct impressionable youth to follow his deplorable example-- has been widely publicized, and central Ohio kids now know that a large segment of the community stands against it. And this behind-the-scenes corruption no longer carries the seeming endorsement of county government and taxpayers.
It is very likely that similar events, along with the outrageous “Drag Queen Story Hours,” are occurring at local libraries across the country, and many people plan to investigate these situations at the local level.
How did the shut-down happen? Largely because of the big heart and child protective actions of Melissa Ackison, Ohio senate candidate, who “outed “ this event in the first place and did near-constant radio and social media publicity alongside Ohio Value Voters. OVV did radio interviews as well with numerous social media and email alerts. Others who got the word out were state representative Andrew Brenner, Elizabeth Johnston (the Activist Mommy), many local churches, and Ohio Mass Resistance representatives.
But unfortunately, the work to hold this library accountable is not done. Mission America sent a letter to the Delaware library board of trustees, Delaware county commissioners and judges on the Court of Common Pleas, highlighting this event but also the outrageous pro-homosexual, pro-“transgender” promotion on the Delaware library teen page.
