It worked here and can work in other places. The fact that other programs were effected proves that Drag Queen Story Hour is a liability.
AUSTIN (KXAN) — Reeling under the backlash from groups opposed to “Drag Queen Story Time,” the city of Leander voted to stop renting out rooms at the library to public groups, effectively ending the controversial program.
Just before midnight, the City Council voted 5-2 on the measure, with Council members Christine Sederquist and Kathryn Pantalion-Parker opposed.
Leander Mayor Troy Hill focused on the monetary aspects of “Drag Queen Story Time,” which cost the city tens of thousands of dollars in security after groups of protesters started coming to the event.
“We brought in $1,800 in rental fees and we spent $20,000 in security. That’s not good math to me,” Hill said.
