PETITION FOR A CITY OF HOUSTON CHARTER AMENDMENT TO REQUIRE CITY OF HOUSTON TO PROHIBIT DRAG QUEEN STORY TIME AT THE HOUSTON PUBLIC LIBRARY AND ITS BRANCHES
To the Mayor and City Council of the City of Houston (“City”):
We, the undersigned registered voters of the City of Houston, Texas, under Section 9.004 of the Texas Local Government Code, hereby petition for an election to amend the Charter of the City of Houston to add the following as a separate section of our Charter, to read as follows:
The City of Houston shall prohibit the Houston Public Library, the Houston Public Library System and its neighborhood branch libraries from hosting, holding or promoting Drag Queen Story Time, Drag Queen Story Hour, Drag King Story Hour, Drag Prince Story Hour, Drag Princesses Story Hour or any variation thereof where a biological male dresses up in women’s clothing representing himself as a Drag Queen or a biological women dresses up in male clothing representing herself as a Drag King to read stories to children in Houston Public libraries.
Petition to the Houston City Council
Stop Drag Queen Storytime at The Houston Public Libraries
The Houston Public Library system, as reported by KHOU Channel 11 News, has initiated the Drag Queen Storytime program in local libraries.
This program has been developed by the LGBTQ political movement with the intention of indoctrinating children. The drag queen said on camera that he wanted to “break the stigma of drag and queer culture with kids.”
The purpose for this is, of course, to normalize this perverted behavior, so that these children can be more easily recruited into their lifestyle.
Exposing children to this bizarre sexual behavior is a form of pedophilia.
I (we), the undersigned, call upon the Houston City Council to instruct the Houston Public Library system to immediately eliminate the Drag Queen Storytime program.

Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance, Resoundingly Defeated
Houston, Texas, November 4, 2015 - In a historic win, Houstonians defeated Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance, by a resounding 61 – 39% margin. Proposition 1, supported by Mayor Annise Parker, would have allowed men, who claimed to be women, to use women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.
Dr. Hotze, President of Campaign for Houston, said, “Houstonians refused to be bullied by the agents of political correctness who wanted to force them to allow men to use women’s public accommodations. They voted overwhelmingly to protect women’s privacy and safety. Mayor Parker, Obama, Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and her allies at Houston GBLT Political Caucus PAC were soundly rebuked in their attempt to promote sexual anarchy in our city. This sends a message to the rest of the country that Houston is a family oriented city with a moral backbone.”
“We give God the glory for this victory. We applaud leaders like Governor Abbott, Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, Pastor Ed Young, and Lance Berkman who demonstrated the courage of their convictions by opposing Houston’s Proposition 1,” said Dr. Hotze.
Jared Woodfill, Spokesman for Campaign for Houston added, “We have been saying all along that this was not about ‘equal rights.’ Defeating Proposition 1 was about protecting women’s and girls’ privacy and safety in public accommodations. Even though the ACLU and other liberal groups from out of state spent millions of dollars supporting Proposition 1, the voters of Houston were not fooled.”
“We thank the Houston voters for standing up for common decency and common sense by defeating Houston’s Proposition 1,” said Dr. Hotze. “This is a great win for Houston and will provide encouragement to other individuals and organizations across the country who have been fighting similar ordinances. We pray that God will enable us to restore our nation to its Christian heritage, so that America can once again be a godly nation, a shining light in a dark world. Campaign for Houston will continue to vigilantly promote conservative values, including freedom of speech and religious liberty.”
