After cancelling a planned drag queen performance for kids at the Soldotna Public Library last month, a radical LGBTQ organization has finally found a local church willing to host its story hour event for area children.
Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna has agreed to open its doors to the so-called “Love Your Neighbor Storytime” on Saturday, Feb. 10, in its fellowship hall.
Christ Lutheran has a history of promoting social issues associated with the far left’s cultural agenda surrounding human sexuality, and its website notes that it strives to “embrace all” genders, sexual orientations, and gender identities, among various other intersecting identities.
The parish is part of the larger Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), which is considered a strong ally of radical LGBTQ activist groups such as the Human Rights Campaign, because it promotes LGBTQ youth summer camps and sex education that affirms LGBTQ sexuality. ELCA churches also ordain LGBTQ clergy and celebrate gay “marriages.”
The upcoming story time is being hosted by Soldotna Pride, which recently held a “Happy New Queer” winter celebration with drag events in a local grocery store and gay bar.
The Feb. 10 church event doesn’t explicitly mention the presence of drag queens, but when Soldotna Pride cancelled the children’s drag queen performance in January the group vowed to double down and reschedule another event in the near future.
A notice for the Feb. 10 show claims it will feature “great books and local leaders.” Children are encouraged to dress up as their “favorite storybook character or a Valentine!”
“Kids, bring your parents, too!” the promotional adds. “This is a safe and welcoming space for ALL!”

This is not the first time Soldotna Pride has targeted young children in promoting various sexual identities and expressions. The group’s annual “Pride in the Park,” has includes radical LGBTQ activists parading through town before gathering at a local park for “all ages” variety shows that include sexually suggestive drag queen dancers and LGBTQ-themed costume contests.
In recent years, the event has sparked heated controversy for hosting performances in which one man men dressed in a costume that appeared to be a miniskirt and a thong as he twerked and did backflips in front of young children. Another performance had a man in a leather miniskirt gyrating in front of minors.
Traditionally, LGBTQ groups have focused on pushing various sexual identities and expressions via parades and programming scheduled across month of June (aka – “Pride Month”). In organizing winter events, Soldotna Pride is signaling that it is now expanding its public promotion of LGBTQ sexuality throughout the year.
