Disruptors no-show at Sil Spring Drag Queen Story hour after strong defenses set up

Video: photographer's victory job shows off stout defenses 7 sec

On the 20th of August, Draq Queen Story Hour returned to Silver Spring. Fearing a repeat of last time's failed disruption attempts or worse, a wall of activists outside defended the entrance. There was no visible sign of MAGAts, Proud Boys, or other would-be defenders. This was literal "peace through strength" where a strong defense may have deterred harassment and prevented trouble from even showing up.

Trangender activists, allies protest as Fl Board of Health votes to deny care to transgender youth

Video-the rally, the die-in, and the mess inside 1 min 55 sec

On the 5th of August, the Florida Board of Medicine held a "public hearing" on a proposal by FL Governor DeSantis (AKA DeSatan) to deny all gender affirming healthcare to transgender youth under 18-and bring back so-called "conversion therapy" it it's place. Outside, transgender protesters and allies staged a press conference and die-in to condemn this deadly proposal. Suicides and deaths from denial of care are going to soar in Florida, and entire families may have to move to gender fugitive sanctuary states (like California will soon be) to escape the governor's version of "Child Protective Services."
