Rainbow Story Hour

Imaginative and immersive fun for little readers!

Little ones are invited to settle back and listen to a story read by a member of our LGBTQIA+ community. HOTA’s Rainbow Story Hour program champions body positivity and role models in all different shapes, sizes, diversities, and encourages the imagination and play of childhood.

Featuring artists, singers, and creatives of all genre, Rainbow Story Hour is a fun way for kids to connect with their imagination, meet friends, and explore vivid realms.

Children must be accompanied by an adult or carer and cannot be left unsupervised at any time. Thank you for your understanding.

#Rainbow Story Hour



With Sarah Huston

Sarah Huston is an actor, stunt performer, artist, and founder of the women’s skateboarding media platform, Yeah Girl. No matter which hat she’s wearing — whether she’s stepping into the shoes of a character on a TV show, performing a stunt on a movie set, designing posters for skate contests, or documenting the world’s best skateboarders — Sarah is always a storyteller.
