On March 19, the organizers of Houston Public Library’s (HPL) controversial Drag Queen Story Time (DQST) announced that they were leaving their positions and cancelling future scheduled events. In a statement published on, the organizers say they came to their decision to resign after the news broke that one of their story time performers was a convicted child sex offender.

Albert Alonso Garza, a.k.a. Nikki Salazar, a.k.a. Tatiana Mala-Ninã, was convicted in 2009 of aggravated assault of a child.  Garza’s victim was an eight-year-old boy.  Garza performs under the stage name Tatiana Mala-Ninã (Tatiana “Bad Girl”), and publically uses the name Nikki Salazar because of being in gender transition since 2017. 


MassResistance-Houston led the investigation into DQST, and has been the prominent organization protesting the HPL’s endorsed program.  RERcontributor Tracy Shannon of MassResistance-Houston, and first broke the story on Thursday, March 14. 

In their published statement the organizers, Trent Lira and Devin Will, blame the scandal on the Houston Public Library not completing background checks, as required, on all library volunteers.  In their statement on the scandal, HPL apologized for the “oversight”.  Yet, Garza was a featured performer at the first Drag Queen Story Time, and performed at two more, subsequently.  Lira and Will say that Garza has not performed at DQST since HPL started conducting background checks.

The primary location of the DQST, a monthly event since September of 2017, was Freed-Montrose Branch of HPL.  To avoid protestors, HPL and the organizers briefly moved the story times to Kindred Church in Montrose – a congregation that promotes the neo-morality agenda.  HPL continued to participate by showing up with library staff and resources. 

Lira and Will say they have decided to step down and cancel future story time events to protect the lives of their friends and the performers.  Lira and Will claim that they have received threats of violence since the breaking of the news and the following national attention.

Interviewed the way only RER can do, RERcontributor Tracy Shannon provides a detailed report on how the now-infamous convicted pedophile participating in Drag Queen Story Time at the Houston Public Library was tracked down.

As RER first reported, It was a twisted thread of multiple aliases that had to be unraveled through social media posts.  Ultimately, the key in discovering the true identity of Albert Alfonso Garza, were the social media posts of an apparently supportive mother.

The primary venue for Drag Queen Story Time in Houston is the Freed-Montrose Branch of the Houston Public Library.

In this video, Shannon explains how advancing the neo-morality movement has become a primary focus of the American Library Association, along the social justice agenda, and moving away from an emphasis on literacy.

Shannon reports that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has order Mayor Sylvester Turner and the Director of Houston Public Library to turn over all documents requested from an Texas Opens Records Request relating to Drag Queen Story Time.  The mayor and the Houston Public have refused to comply with the law and submit the documents to the MassResitance Houston – the prime organization opposing DQST. 

Houston Public Library holds ultimate responsibility for not following its policy of completing a background check on all library volunteers.  They have acknowledged so in a public statement.

One of the greatest fears of parents and opponents of the neo-morality movement has become a reality in Houston, Texas.

A convicted child sex offender, Albert Alfonso Garza a.k.a. Nikki Salazar a.k.a. Tatiana Mala-Niña, 32 years old from Houston, has been identified as a featured performer at Houston Public Library’s monthly Drag Queen Storytime (DQST) for children.   

Garza was convicted in Texas in 2009 of aggravated sexual assault of a child.  The victim was an eight-year-old boy.  The Texas Public Sex Offender Registry records that the sentence was five years of probation and community supervision.  He must remain in the registry for his lifetime. 

Garza has performed for DQST at the Houston Public Library on September 30, 2017, June 30, 2018, and September 29, 2018.

Until recently, when it has been held at the Kindred Church in Montrose, DQST has been conducted at the Houston Public Library’s Freed-Montrose branch.  The Montrose section of Houston is the hub of the neo-morality movement for the city, and some would argue, for Texas. was first informed of the facts of the story on Thursday, March 14, 2019 when RERcontributor Tracy Shannon briefed Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani, RER’s CEO.  Apostle Claver broke the story during his video and audio streaming program at 12 p.m. that day.

Tracy Shannon, a founding member of MassResistance – an activist group dedicated to opposing the neo-morality movement in Houston – appeared on Apostle Claver’s program on Friday, March 15, 2019, to reveal and discuss all the evidence that MassResistance was able to uncover during their investigation of the participants in DQST and its facilitators.  Shannon, MassResistance, and RER have been covering the story since September of 2018 when DQST announced the celebration of the one-year anniversary. 

The investigation of MassResistance was primarily the exercise of following a twisted thread of leads available through social media postings. The first step was to do simple searches for the performing drag queens by their stage names.  Two huge hits came up on the advertised DQST performers, Blackberri and Tatiana Mala-Niña (Tatiana Bad-Girl). 

Reporting on DQST, stated, “The inaugural reading starred the city’s favorite bearded lady, Blackberri, and beloved glamour queen, Tatiana Mala-Niña, who delighted the crowd with their interactive, fun approach to engaging kids.”

More on Blackberri later in this article… 


The convicted pedophile, Albert Alfonso Garza, has several social media pages with his various aliases.  MassResistance found Tatiana Mala-Niña’s Facebook page, first.  Garza, as Tatiana Mala-Niña, posted a birthday wish to his mother and “tagged” her on the post.  “Mother” Garza became the key that unlocked the mystery.

Tatiana Mala-Nina posted this pic wishing Tatiana’s mom a happy birthday. A look at the mom’s profile reveals Nikki Salazar is Tatiana.

MassResistance visited “Mother” Garza’s page and found some very interesting photos.  She has a habit of “tagging” her photos with those that are appearing in the photos.  She tagged photos and posts with the name Nikki Salazar, but the Nikki is a male that looks identical to the photo posted on the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Sex Offender Registry for Albert Alfonso Garza.

The next obvious step was to click on the link to Nikki Salazar’s Facebook page.  As the spelling would indicate, along with the photos posted, it appeared that Nikki is a female.  Along with the page under the name Tatiana Mala-Niña, that made two separate Facebook profiles for Garza.

“Mother” Garza ultimately provided the concrete evidence that Albert is Nikki is Tatitiana.  She made a Facebook photo post on June 15, 2014 in which she referred to the male in the picture as “Albert”.  That provided MassResistance with a male first name to go along with “Mother’s” last name. 

“Mother” Garza identified the male in the picture as “Albert”.

Using such markers as date of birth, and address, MassResistance did a general search of the Texas Department of Public Safety’s data base, and Garza’s name got a hit. 

With the name Albert Garza now known to them, MassResistance was then able to discover other photos of Garza prior to becoming a transgender. 

On the Nikki Salazar Facebook page, Garza describes himself as a transgender female that has been transitioning since May, 2017, a showgirl, and YouTube personality.  Apparently, Garza is, or has, engaged facial feminizing surgery, and hormone therapy to change his appearance.

Garza lays out the facts…

Perhaps the most convincing evidence that Garza, Salazar, and “Bad Girl” are one-in-the-same, a featured Facebook photo of Nikki Salazar is the exact same photo being displayed on the Instagram profile of Tatiana Mala-Niña. 

This Facebook feature photo of Garza under the name Nikki Salazar… the same photo that can found on the
Tatiana Mala-Niña Instagram profile.

How did MassResistance find the Instagram account of Garza?  A musical duo known as the Space Kiddettes is connected with DQST.  In an Instagram post announcing the celebration of one-year anniversary of DQST and featured performers, “Bad Girls” Instagram handle was listed right next to Blackberri’s.

In this video from MassResistance, Blackberri is the face and voice of DQST as part of an approving report from Houston television station KHOU Channel 11, the CBS affiliate.  The KHOU reporter ends the package by saying, “You have to start them young, right?”


The faces of the attending children and parents can clearly be seen. Most disturbing is the footage of Blackberri gyrating his buttocks in the faces of the children and asking them to join him.  While the performers of DQST would like to present a front of being caring advocates for children, a screening of their social media posts shows an unfortunate, very predictable lifestyle for super star drag queens.
