Mayor of Chula Vista meets with critics of Drag Queen Story Hour
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Mayor of Chula Vista Mary Salas met with critics of the Drag Queen Story Hour today to hear their objections to the event.
The Drag Queen Story Hour is planned for Tuesday, Sept. 10 at the Chula Vista Public Library. Many faith leaders and other critics have called for the event to be cancelled.
Protesters and supporters have clashed over the issue in the past few weeks. In fact, the weekend vandalism at a Chula Vista church is being investigated as a hate crime by police, and a pastor believes his church was targeted because of their strong opposition to the event.
After the meeting, the mayor said that the event would go on as planned, with hundreds of people expected to attend.
