Los Angeles drag queen Xochi Mochi took part in Drag Queen Story Hour at Long Beach public library in October 2017. A widely-shared photo of the event is authentic.

....
The web sites also made much of the fact that Xochi Mochi’s costume involved horns, though there’s no evidence that those horns are “Satan-inspired.” They could just as well have been inspired by the Greek gods Pan or Dionysus, both of whom are often depicted with horns. Or they could simply be Xochi Mochi’s own invention. Satan and other Christian demons (as well as Pan and Dionysus) are typically portrayed with two horns, rather than the five that Xochi Mochi wore.

She was also wearing a pink dress and cape; a gem-encrusted necklace and bracelet; and flowers in her hair and on her cape — all of which are hardly in keeping with Satanist or demonic symbology and suggest that — like most drag — Xochi Mochi’s appearance was driven by playfulness and eclecticism.

But on the spirit of the matter, this took place at a public library.
If their policy allows for priests / rabbis / nuns / imam / ... to read to the kids, then that's all good.

I thought religion isn't allowed in the public education system.

The First Amendment applies only to Congress, as it says "Congress shall make no law". That has not been amended, other than by black robes, who make messes and then move on.

If you take the time to read the article the thread is about, this is a public library, not a public school library.
Thanks from Hollywood

I see that, thanks. It's kinda sick. What's the purpose of having a drag queen dressed up like a demon reading to little kids?
Thanks from Sabcat

The same reason you have a problem with Christianity. We're on different teams.

The only time I have a problem with christianity and christian is when they start deciding that their myths should have an impact on my life and try to instigate such. Or use taxpayer funded sources to promote their particular brand of myth.
