The Veronicas' Jess Origliasso has taken to social media to blast a bunch of right-wing student protesters who stormed a drag event at a local library.

Two drag queens were hosting a 'children’s story telling event' run by the Brisbane City Council Libraries and Rainbow Families Qld.

This morning a good friend of mine took her daughter along to a children’s story telling event in Brisbane by two gorgeous Drag Queens, when a screaming group calling themselves the UQ young Libs stormed the event in a public library, causing chaos and distress to children and everybody there. I am heartbroken & furious. Our world - and especially Australia - is in need of love & healing, now more than ever. What they did today was add to the bigotry, division and trauma young children are left to face in today’s society. Bless the two Queens who were there to bring joy to children and their families. What you share with our community is invaluable 🌈 ** you can show your support to the queens who hold drag story time, by heading to @johnevalk @ @dgoodrim_ pages, and sending lots of love. And thank you to my friend who shared this footage so that we could get the word out. —————————————————————————— @uqunion & @uniofqld please look into this #Repost A huge ****you to the group of screaming UQ Young Libs who stormed a children's storytelling event hosted by two drag queens. You know what's not for kids? Deliberately distressing and terrifying children and their carers. Do you know what's not good for kids? Watching librarians sobbing and people screaming for security. You ****ing **holes turned a beautiful moment into something ugly. Do you know these people? Tag 'em.
