The AG was displeased at the behavior and defended the LGBT community by emphasizing her efforts to make the city and state safe for them.

Representatives for James and Drag Story Hour’s New York City chapter did not immediately return NBC News’ request for comment regarding the clash. But in a statement on Sunday, James said the recent rise in anti-LGBTQ protests and legislation has left her “devastated and disappointed.”

“Hate has no home in New York, and I will always fight to ensure our LGBTQ+ siblings’ rights are upheld and defended,” she said.

“My two young daughters have been going to Drag Queen Story Hour for years with their two dads. They like it for the simple reason that it’s fun and interesting — there’s nothing more complicated than that,” New York state Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal, who is gay, said in a statement Sunday. “Those who are attempting to use Drag Queen Story Hour to stir up controversy and vitriol directed at the LGBTQ community and specifically drag artists should be ashamed of themselves.”


New York is just the latest location to experience a drag queen event targeted by white supremacists who believe these gatherings are to push the “gay agenda” and corrupt the children. Members of the Proud Boys disrupted another drag story time in Alameda County leading to response from the police. Another time, in Idaho, a U-Haul truck full of right-wing extremists conspired to riot at a Pride Parade.

Their obsession with the LGBT community knows no bounds.
