Queer Kid Stuff
Experimental Bitches Lindsay Amer and Hannah Kettering bring you Queer Kid Stuff!
Queer Kid Stuff is a new webseries educating kids on LGBTQ+ topics. Queer representation and content for children is scarce and Queer Kid Stuff aims to eliminate stigma by properly educating future generations through entertaining video content. The pilot episode, set to launch on April 20th, 2016, tackles the subject; What Does Gay Mean? A simple enough subject, but you would be surprised the amount of young children who might not know the answer to that question.
Creator and host, Lindsay and her best stuffed friend Teddy explain what gay means through a vlog-style conversation with young viewers focused on love and family. The short video is a tool for parents, teachers, and LGBTQ+ adults to help them explain what gay is to the young children in their lives, recommended for ages 3-7. A free, printable activity sheet accompanies the episode to further instill the lessons of the video through activities which can be done at home or in the classroom.
The pilot episode is the first in a season of 10 episodes which will premiere in Fall 2016 answering other queer questions in kid-friendly videos. These topics include non-binary genders and trans* identities, marriage equality, feminism, and queer themes in children's pop culture. If that sounds like the coolest thing ever, you can donate to the Queer Kid Stuff Patreon page to help fun the first full season of videos which will be posted for free on YouTube with accompanying activity sheets.
