This YouTuber is teaching kids about the LGBT community
Lindsay Amer has recently started a YouTube channel called Queer Kid Stuff which aims to teach children about the LGBT community in a way that they can understand.
Talking about the LGBT community from a young age is important in teaching kids about the world they will grow up in and also help them be more accepting. However, talking about it can be challenging for many parents or people part of the upbringing of a child.
In the series, Lindsay Amer so far has talked about marriage equality, defining queer, gender and the meaning of gay.
In her videos she has her best friend Teddy help her out by taking on the person of a child to which Amer talks to.
Talking to the Huffington post after sharing her video on homophobia, she said: “I wrote this right after the attack on Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. As much as I would love to stay in the happy queer utopia of love and acceptance, that is not the reality of our world.
"I hope this video will help those who do not have the words to talk to the little ones around them about what happened in Orlando, and what might be happening to them in their schools. My hope is that by creating these videos and continuing to educate young people on LGBTQ+ issues, there will come a time when this video is a relic that is no longer necessary.”
