Last week, a North Carolina school hosted local drag queens, encouraging them to talk to middle school students and celebrate how people are different.
The idea was promulgated by two teachers at Central Park School for Children in Durham, North Carolina, Taylor Schmidt and Schara Brooks, who felt students identifying as LGBT were being bullied. Schmidt said, “If we’re going to be a school that’s focused on equity and justice, and if we’re going to be a school that believes in the act of liberation, we need to be creative with our approach.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Last December the two teachers suggested to the school that an event be held to address the issue, prompting the creation of the Pride and Liberation Event.
Thus, last week Vivica C. Coxx and Stormie Daie of the House of Coxx drag house spoke at the school, along with a panel featuring a city council member. The event featured a drag show and a show from the school’s step team, as CNN reported. CNN noted, “Students were allowed to opt out of the event, but the school says most decided to attend.”
The News & Record reported:
In between Beyonce and Nikki Minaj songs, Coxx and Daie connected with the students over growing up in Durham and what it was like to feel different, slipping in quick lessons about LGBT history along the way. For one song, Daie swirled a floor-length skirt, each layer of fabric a different color of the rainbow. Cheers erupted when she pulled the skirt off to reveal a gold jumpsuit and knee-high gold boots.
