VIDEO: “Queer Kid Stuff” Brings More LGBTQ Vids to Kids!

Queer Kid Stuff is an educational webseries geared towards a young audience. Think Mr. Rogers, but with a cute queer woman in a fun button-down shirt instead of a kindly man in a red sweater.

Lindsay Amer created Queer Kid Stuff because she saw a need for age-appropriate and affirming LGBTQ educational content geared towards young children. She and her best stuffed friend, Teddy, star in the series. The first video “What Does Gay Mean?” was released last spring and the rest of Series One is slated to be released this fall.

KaeLyn is a 35-year-old (femme)nist activist, word nerd, and queer mama. You can typically find her binge-watching TV, over-caffeinating herself, standing somewhere with a mic or a sign in her hand, eating carbs, or just generally doing too many things at once. She lives in Rochester, NY with her spouse, a baby T. rex, a xenophobic cat, and a rascally rabbit. You can buy her debut book, Girls Resist! A Guide to Activism, Leadership, and Starting a Revolution if you want to, if you feel like it, if that's a thing that interests you or whatever.

  1. Omg. The queer video. Yes! All the yes! I appreciate that the word queer has been used as a slur, but it’s also my identity! I’m glad education is making the word positive for new generations.

  2. The Queer kids stuff series may have some good intentions but many people believe that it is highly inappropriate for the age group it is aimed at. For good reason.
    3 year old children do not need to know if they are gay or not or what their gender identity is.
