Queer Kid Stuff is a YouTube web series educating children on LGBTI issues and other areas of social justice. Hosted by Lindsay, a queer person from New York City, the goal of this project is to provide positive representation for young kids, especially ones who are questioning their identities.
The pilot episode of Queer Kid Stuff aired in the spring of 2016 and discussed the question: ‘What does gay mean?’ Since then, the YouTube channel has grown to over 13,000 subscribers. Queer Kid Stuff has also been featured in publications like Teen Vogue, Romper, Upworthy, Parents, Bustle, Huffington Post, and more.
‘I am a storyteller at heart,’ Lindsay writes on the Queer Kid Stuff website. ‘My background lies primarily in directing theater for young audiences.’
Queer Kid Stuff has been awarded funding from organizations like GLAAD and the Awesome Campaign. The webseries also raises its own money on Patreon. You can also buy kid and LGBTI-friendly merch from Queer Kid Stuff to support their efforts.
