It's billed as "a world where people can present as they wish, and where dress-up is real."

Sean Hayes of Trans Plus calls it a much-needed addition to the community where LGBTQ people are frequently looking for new and family-friendly places to get together.

In some communities, big and small, liberal and conservative alike, the growing popularity of Drag Story Hours are getting some pushback.  But Bob Dobrow of Zenith Books in Duluth's West End says in our community, there's been no pushback at all, and even if there was, he says it wouldn't matter.  "We feel we're doing the right thing."
