Modeling Queer Inclusion
“I hope to inspire people to start talking to kids about LGBTQ topics and to not be afraid of those conversations. It doesn’t have to be scary! Making these topics accessible to everyone helps normalize LGBTQ people.”

Lindsay started Queer Kid Stuff as a web series in 2016 to educate kids on LGBTQ+ and social justice topics in simple and entertaining ways. Created for children as young as 3 years old, the pilot episode tackled the subject, ‘What Does Gay Mean?’ based on a common Google search phrase. Queer representation and content for children is scarce and Queer Kid Stuff aims to eliminate stigma and educate future generations through entertaining video content.Visit Website
