CBS4 Denver – A school district apologized to parents after hosting a drag queen as part of a career day. A spokesperson for Adams 12 Five Star schools said Rocky Top Middle School staff should have notified parents a drag queen would be speaking to their children, before allowing the speech to happen.
Students at Rocky Top range from grade 6 to 8, and the drag queen, identified as “Jessica L’Whor,” is a relative of one student. The district confirmed “L’Whor” was invited to attend career day. “I knew it was going to be controversial because that was nothing that would be allowed when I was in middle school,” L’Whor said. “At the same time, it opened up a door for conversation.”
