Rainbow Optimist Club
SOUTHWESTERN ONTARIO, INC.
Bettering the lives of LGBT2Q+ rural youth, their families, and their communities in Elgin, Middlesex, and Oxford Counties.
Through the performance art of Drag, the Rainbow Optimist Club has produced our Drag Storytimes. The Drag Storytimes are a unique way to engage children in learning about inclusion and diversity through reading a selection of carefully curated books by our 6 Library partners: Elgin County Library, London Public Library, Middlesex County Library, Oxford County Library, St. Thomas Public Library and Woodstock Public Library.

to a virtual Drag Storytime format, now a highbred of in-person and virtual. Read more about the history of Drag Storytime here.
