The woman behind the ongoing LGBTQ drag queen performances targeting Anchorage children is the featured speaker for an upcoming Alaska Humanities Forum presentation. Titled, “Kids Need to be Around More Drag Queens (and other ways to make the world a better, safer place,” the talk is scheduled for April 5, at Williwaw Social. It runs from 6-8 p.m.
Kendra Arciniega is the owner of Arciniega Street Productions. Together with her lesbian “wife,” she produces erotic drag queen performances in various venues around Anchorage. Many of her shows are geared to adults, but she also has regular offerings for young children and toddlers, which feature men dancing and mingling with children while wearing erotic lingerie, exposed thong underwear and sexy evening gowns.
According to the Alaska Humanities Forum flyer promoting Arciniega’s upcoming talk, her goal is to produce “community-building entertainment that focuses on Latine, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ artists and their respective community intersections.”
The flyer notes that much of Arciniega’s business is specifically aimed at “queer youth, families, and allies … to promote more unity and safe spaces in Anchorage, and yes, this includes family-friendly drag shows.”
Admission to Arciniega’s April 5 talk on the virtue of drag queen/child relationships is $5.
Traditionally, the Alaska Humanities Forum focused on classic cultural, literary, historical and musical projects. In recent years, however, the nonprofit has shifted its focus to promote the most radical and controversial elements found in the LGBTQ and Critical Race Theory movements.

According to the organization’s website, it now aims to create spaces “where people can share controversial ideas, be vulnerable and real, and examine their assumptions and biases in order to gain a new or deeper understanding.”
Ultimately, Alaska Humanities Forum wants to change historical norms and perceptions in order to see “long-term, lasting social change.” Apparently, this entails more interaction between professional drag-queen performers and very young children.
