Bounce Milwaukee has become a large and very popular entertainment spot for families, offering all sorts of bounce-house options, laser tag, rock climbing and more. The venue is especially popular for kids’ birthday parties. Bounce House also offers fund-raising opportunities, which Drag Queen Story Hour Milwaukee took advantage of this past Saturday,
utilizing an area right near the main entrance from 2-6 p.m., even while families were bringing in seven and eight-year-olds for a birthday party elsewhere in the facility. A portion of the entire day’s sales went to the Drag Queens.

PARENTS BEWARE. “This is a private business,” says Julaine Appling, WFA president, “and the owners have every right to host a fund-raiser for any group they want, but I believe this is a horrible business decision. Bounce Milwaukee was started by a couple with five children who wanted a place for families to have fun. Exposing children to drag queens who want to captivate the hearts and minds of young children should not be part of their business plan in any way.
