Philadelphia Gay News and sponsored by Visit Philadelphia. It drew a crowd of 263 people.Organizers claim the crowd’s size set a first-ever Guinness World Record in the category.

The Guinness Book of World Records website officially cites the event as the current record holder. The attempt for the record involved drag queens Brittany Lynn and Morgan Wells, who read to an audience consisting of adults and children.

Selections included Hello, Philadelphia! by Martha Day Zschock, ‘Twas the Night Before Pride by Joanna McClintick, Elmer by David Mckee, The Family Book by Todd Parr, and Kevin the Unicorn: It’s Not All Rainbows, by Jessika von Innerebner.Philadelphia Gay News reported that many attendees learned about the Story Time less than 24 hours in advance, which could have been one of the reasons why no conservative protesters picketed it.

Another factor was the time, with the event kicking off at 9 a.m., compared to most Drag Queen Story Times, which occur in the late morning or early afternoon.Early arrivals had to pass through Constitution Center security, which was on alert in case of threats of violence.Mark Segal, publisher of Philadelphia Gay News, hailed the Story Time as a success and a victory for freedom of speech and expression.
