This YouTube Channel Is Teaching Kids the LGBT School Lesson We Wish We Had

A new YouTube channel launched earlier this month is teaching elementary school-aged kids positive lessons about the LGBT community — and it's one of the most adorable things we've ever seen.

Aptly entitled Queer Kid Stuff, the web series (which is created and hosted by Lindsay Amer) was founded as a fun way to help "educate kids on LGBTQ+ topics."

"Queer representation and content for children is scarce, and Queer Kid Stuff aims to eliminate stigma by properly educating future generations through entertaining video content," reads the description of the project on their official website.

And the first episode in the series, "What Does Gay Mean?," does just that, with Lindsay being joined by her cuddly co-host Teddy to help teach children what the definition of the word "gay" really means.

Queer Kids Stuff is a stark contrast to the antigay cartoon the Jehovah's Witnesses released in early May, telling kids that same-sex couples are bad, and that gay people should be "converted."

Watch the first episode of Queer Kids Stuff in the video below! And if you're interested, they're also crowdfunding to help create more episodes!
