CORNING, N.Y. (WETM) – Mornings in Corning had Jeffrey Mathews on this morning to highlight his talent as a local Drag Queen and storyteller extraordinaire. Vanessa LeDiva has been featured on 18 News before for her incredible storytelling. Jeffrey Mathews travels as Vanessa LeDiva and reads for children across the community. Before the pandemic, LeDiva has read books for other local drag storytimes in the community.

“There is a lot of ways to live a happy life, and it’s not necessarily in a rigid gender binary,” said LeDiva. “As they grow, they will learn, something different, isn’t something scary, isn’t something to be feared or hated,” Vanessa said to 18 News back during one of her Drag Storytime’s.
