Transphobe Disrupts Drag Queen Story Hour


Several children were exposed to a notorious anti-LGBT troll.

A self-proclaimed pastor named David Grisham filmed himself Saturday bursting into a private event at an Anchorage, Alaska, library where drag queens were reading books to children.

The commotion occurred during Drag Queen Story Hour, part of Anchorage's PrideFest celebration, local TV station KTVA reports.

"Hey kids, my name is Pastor David, and I want to tell you there's no such thing as transgenders," Grisham said to the roomful of children, before parents responded with boos and escorted him from the room. Grisham did not go quietly, screaming, "God made men men and women women! Transgenders do not exist!"

During the incident, the drag queens sang "The Wheels on the Bus" to calm the children.

Grisham is well-known in Anchorage; he not only commonly disrupts LGBT gatherings, but has caused scenes at Christmas events where children were present.

Similar to a failed congressional candidate who recently accosted a trans woman at a Los Angeles restaurant, Grisham filmed the harassment and put it on Facebook. The video remains on his page and is accompanied by the following message:
