On Nov. 6, 2021, the MultiCultural Center at UC Santa Barbara held an event for children and families called Drag Queen Story Hour. The event featured drag queen and author Miss Angel, who read three children’s books and made time for short activities in between each story. This provided families and children time to socialize and interact with one another. The chosen books showcased diverse authors and centered on “empathy, acceptance, equity, identity and kindness,” according to the event flyer.
