Breast ‘binder raffle,’ drag show held at public library for ‘Teen Pride’

A free breast binder raffle and a drag show are among the activities considered appropriate for tweens and teens at a Seattle-area public library, despite massive public complaints.

The King County Library System has been promoting the “Teen Pride” event on its website. It’s being held at the Renton Library from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday.

The event is described as a “pride celebration designed by teens for teens” and the “most rainbow filled fun you can imagine.” It includes activities like open mic and karaoke. Other activities listed are presentations on “safer” sex, a drag show, an “advice panel,” and a “free binder raffle.” The event page says that Saturday’s gathering is “suitable” for tweens and teens, meaning ages 10 to 19.

Local activists who have been protesting and spoke with The Christian Post on condition of anonymity, said that when they contacted library officials and county council members to express their concerns and objections, they were snidely dismissed and told that the event to would proceed as planned.
