    Comedian Matt Braunger Recalls Drag Queen Story Time with Pickle and Special Guest Idina Menzel

    A recent YouTube video posted on February 28, by comedian Matt Braunger, brings humor to Drag Queen Story Time in West Hollywood. He recalls taking his daughter Rose to see Pickle Drag Queen on the day that Idina Menzel was a special guest. Manzel plays the role of Elsa in the 2013 animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures.

    “For those of you who don’t have a daughter younger than five, you might not know this, but Elsa in Frozen is their Jesus Christ,” he joked. “Little girls are taking a knee like, ‘My Lord…,’ laying down weapons of fealty. It was insane. They’re just crying, and I was like, whoa, it’s like our parents saw Elvis kind of thing.”

    Braunger also addresses parents who have a problem with taking their children to Drag Story Time. “A lot of these people are like, ‘I would never take my kid to Drag Queen Story Time.’ Do you read to your kid? No. Like, do you see the problem here? What’s the argument? They’re going to indoctrinate your kids? Do you think drag queens want to make other drag queens? That’s a competitive market, man. Have you seen Drag Race? It’s like the Highlander. There can be only one.”
