ATLANTA, Georgia,  July 22, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Two of Atlanta’s professional sports teams – the Atlanta Hawks and the Atlanta Falcons – have been credited with co-sponsoring a Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) event at Atlanta’s City Hall to cap Pride Month.  

“We want to thank our friends at the Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Falcons, Whole Foods, Georgia Beverage and Atlanta Pride for partnering with us for Drag Queen Story Hour,” tweeted One Atlanta, the Mayor’s Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.   

The Atlanta Hawks sent their mascot, ‘Harry the Hawk,” wearing pride flag plumage, to the event.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms invited ‘Miss Terra Cotta Sugarbaker,’a.k.a., Steven Igarashi-Ball, to perform in City Hall after a DQSH he was scheduled to perform in at a nearby Fulton County Library branch was removed from the library system’s event calendar.

While the event wasn’t canceled, the library’s decision to halt all promotion of the event was perceived as a snub to the drag queen.
