Justin Marsh of Cambridge reads “Just Add Glitter” in today’s devotional at the Vermont State House.

The founder of Drag Story Hour in Vermont gave the devotional for the Vermont House of Representatives Wednesday morning.
Justin Marsh of Cambridge, whose stage name is Emoji Nightmare, read a non-controversial children’s book called “Just Add Glitter.”
Marsh’s reading is the first Drag Story Hour State House devotional known to this observer. It can be viewed on the legislative website. The daily devotional is typically a brief reading, song, or sermonette, sometimes but not always given by clergy. It is scheduled by the staff of the House Clerk.
Marsh added a few Vermont references to the text by Massachusetts author Angela diTerlizzi.
One State House insider suggested, tongue-in-cheek, it was Vermont’s response to another state’s law banning transgender adults from working with minors. “Just thumbing their nose at Montana,” he laughed.
