About

What is QUEER KID STUFF?
QUEER KID STUFF is a multi-media production company spreading queer joy through queer-focused intersectional all-ages media.

Our flagship webseries, Queer Kid Stuff, brings LGBTQ+ and social justice entertainment to the whole family. Hosted by a tie-wearing queer human, Lindsay 'Lindz' Amer, and their best-stuffed friend, Teddy, it’s Mr. Rodgers’ Neighborhood meets Gender Studies 101! 

But we also do LOTS of other things! Lindz travels all across the country bringing live performances of LGBTQ+ songs and stories to libraries, schools, museums, and community centers. They have brought these performances into virtual spaces during the COVID-19 quarantine through weekly live streams on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. They also host a brand new family podcast called Activist, You! where they interview inspirational kid and youth activists! WHEW that's a lot of stuff!

Why is QUEER KID STUFF important?
Queer representation and content for children is scarce and QUEER KID STUFF aims to eliminate stigma by educating future generations through queer-focused intersectional media specifically made for an all-ages audience. Parents, teachers and LGBTQ+ adults can use our work as a tool to help them explain queerness to the kids in their lives; recommended for all ages!

Why should you become a QUEER KID STUFF Patron?
QUEER KID STUFF videos and resources are all completely and totally FREE! BUT, they are not free to make. We have an amazing team of queer, trans, and non-binary people who put their whole hearts into making QKS resources incredible. In order to maintain the high-quality of our content, we need to pay those amazing humans! Supporting my Patreon means you are helping QKS pay for our website hosting fees, software for our weekly live streams, travel costs for our live performances, and costs to edit our podcast.

Patreon is awesome! It's different than other crowdfunding platforms because it is ongoing! You donate in smaller increments ($1-$25) and you pay per month, kinda like a subscription! Neat, right? You get some sweet sweet rewards too!

How did QUEER KID STUFF get started?
One fine day, Lindsay had a question for Google. They asked, "what does gay mean?" like any kids nowadays does when they hear a new word. But what came up was disappointing. The results were a dictionary definition and a how-to-explain guide for parents, teachers, and other adults, but there were no resources made for kids. Lindsay wanted to change that.

Our pilot episode: What Does Gay Mean? premiered in May 2016 and we've been going strong ever since! We've had amazing recognition from some incredible organizations, reaching over 2M views on our YouTube videos! 

What are people saying about QUEER KID STUFF?
"I'm so here for this!" - Shonda Rhimes

“There's Now a Fun Way to Teach Your Kids Their LGBTs” - Parents Magazine

“It’s pretty adorable, from the stop-animation opening song to the friendly playroom-styled set to Amer’s delivery of educational content in a fun, accessible way with chalkboard illustrations. There’s even a clever joke about bears!” - Autostraddle

“The show’s fun, accessible format (the theme song already has me singing along) is ideal for educating kids about what it means to be LGBT. The short weekly episodes provide the perfect conversation starter for parents who want to talk to their kids about sexuality, but haven’t found the right approach. Oh, and did I mention that Teddy is seriously adorable?” - Hellogiggles

We've also worked with a few AWESOME organizations:

A little bit about Lindz, creator & host of QUEER KID STUFF:
Lindz is a queer activist, artist, and storyteller. Their TED Talk on the importance of teaching kids about gender and sexuality has reached over 2M views! They were named a Rising Star by GLAAD, are a Webby Award Honoree, and have been recognized by HuffPost, Teen Vogue, Refinery29, and Kidscreen (among others) for their work. When they’re not taking down the patriarchy, they’re probably roaming around with their uke, their incredible partner, and their very cute puppy!
