The drag bingo event was called off after threats, but that didn’t stop Downers Grove residents from calling out library board members.
“What I do not understand is why the Downers Grove library would want to host an event that promotes a highly sexualized form of adult entertainment for children as young as 12 years old,” one attendee said
Much of the meeting went like that.
Another resident, though, told CBS 2:
“I think it is incredibly insulting and offensive that people would take words like that and make serious accusations about sexual abuse about a marginalized group of people,” they said.
A survey found that a slight majority of people — 52% — supported the drag bingo event.
An overwhelming number who spoke during the meeting, though, did not.
