Building community one story at a time...

Adding a little pizzazz and sparkle to afternoon's favorite past time...STORY HOUR!

Drag Queen Story Hour: Nebraska is a way to bring children, families and Drag Queens together for a playful hour of celebration, imagination, learning and fun.   Drag Queen Story Time: Nebraska was created by drag/cabaret performers Mrs. Yuka Layme & Amanda Lynn and produced with Cherry Peaks.  Story hour is featured every month on an alternating scheduled at OutLinc office & 70th & O Starbucks.  They have also been seen at Star City Pride, Fall For Pride, Heartland Pride, and the Conjure Shop in Omaha.

Drag Queen Story Hour: Nebraska recently was awarded BEST COMMUNITY OUTREACH at the Star City Pride STELLA Awards.

Our events are inspired by and officially recognized by DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR, which was originally created in 2014 by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco, as a way to bring children, families and Drag Queens together for a playful hour of celebration and fun. Since then, Drag Queen Story Hours have popped up in Brooklyn, Ottawa and Chicago, with other cities in the works.
