Following on from her hugely successful children’s EP “Drag IS Magic”, Nina West is bringing her new series “Story Time With Nina!” to Instagram Live/IGTV beginning Wednesday March 18th 2020 at 4pm EST/1pm PST and continuing on her IGTV channel the next days. Join Nina as she reads some of her favourite children’s stories with an added touch of Nina Magic!
Nina West, RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 Miss Congeniality and Fan Favorite (https://yassmagazine.org/2019/12/04/ninawest/), recently took us back to school to learn “The Drag Alphabet” (https://yassmagazine.org/2020/02/27/thedragalphabet/) after releasing an EP of children’s entertainment called “Drag is magic”.
Nina firmly believes that children are our future and the fundamental task of learning the ABC’s doesn’t have to be a chore. “Drag isn’t just a niche product anymore – Drag is for Everyone!” said Nina West. “I wanted to use my platform to teach the children of the world a new way to learn their ABC’s in a fun way while also teaching them some fundamental words and phrases from Drag culture. I want everyone to be able to be included and to learn alongside each other, so I was so thrilled when Dani and Ivy agreed to come and help teach me, as well as the audience how to sign The Drag Alphabet. Both of these amazingly talented young women represent the future and are forging their own paths, while bringing intersectional activism to two very overlooked and underrepresented communities. They inspire me to learn and keep teaching people that underrepresented communities like ours need voices, but they also need to do it in fun and educational ways .
“Come one, come All- Children young and young at heart! No judgement here! We could all use some extra magic during this difficult time and I’m thrilled to be able to read some of my favorite stories with all of you!”
The first episode will feature “RED: A Crayon’s Story” by Michael Hall, a story about a crayon who suffers an identity crisis when he is labelled wrong.
