Drag Queen Reina De Aztlan read stories to delighted children on a November Saturday. Occasions like this have become cultural flashpoints, and outside the library there were demonstrators against her appearance. They held signs and were even compelled to lead prayers. But inside there were many adult supporters, as well as the children. Fortunately, all was peaceful.
