The Cincinnati Sisters — the self-described group of radical queer drag nuns delivering a message of love and acceptance — are hosting a special family-friendly storytime event at Northside's The Factory Events this Saturday, June 20, in order to raise funds with for the Black Trans Femmes in the Arts.

Sponsored by Northside bookstore Downbound Books and The Factory, the event will take place in the venue's lush courtyard.

Tickets can be purchased online for $10 per group and offers each group a roughly six-foot-by-six-foot space on the lawn.

All of the proceeds from each ticket sold benefits the Black Trans Femmes in the Arts, "a collective of Black trans women and non-binary femmes who are dedicated to creating space for Black trans femmes in the arts," according to the organization's Facebook page. 

The 30-minute event kicks off at 10 a.m. and doors open at 9:45 a.m. Masks must be worn by adult attendees and are encouraged for children 10 years or older. You are welcome to bring a blanket to lay down on the lawn.
