Please reach out to us if you have any questions about accessibility at our events, in person or online. It is our goal to make our story hours accessible to everyone, and if there is a way we can better help you or someone you love enjoy our programing we want to help! We do currently offer Closed Captioning on our recorded programing and we can provide ASL interpretations at our in person events by request.
The mission of Drag Story Hour Arizona includes providing resources for LGBTQ+ youth and families. Below you will find book recommendations for both kids and adults, and links to community organizations. You can download a PDF version of the Resource Guide here.
