DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio - Selena West, who was going to teach a class on drag queens at the Delaware County Library, confirmed to 10TV on Tuesday the class has been moved to a new location after she received death threats.

The class drew some backlash from the community which was seen at a meeting of library board commissioners last week.

West argued last week the class is about theater and dressing up and not about sexuality.

Some people still had concerns with one saying they thought it still indicated sexual choices.

Another person had concerns a controversial program was being funded by taxpayers.

There were supporters at the meeting who said the class was no big deal.

West said the class will now be held at Secret Identity Comics in Delaware on June 5, which offered space for free.

West said she did not have any input in the decision making and the director made the choice after a threat was made.

She said people can sign up by reaching out to her on her Facebook page or by e-mail at Kylegale462@gmail.com.

Library director George Needham is scheduled to speak at a press conference about the Drag 101 program on Wednesday.
